Manzana Crocante ( Apple Crisp)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by MemphisMommy

This recipe is a form of apple crisp that I have made since I was a teenager. It is the only one I use and it consistently tastes matter what type of apples are used. I have substituted Splenda sugar for both the brown and white sugars called for in this recipe and it comes out tasting just as good, although the 'crisp' part has a little different texture to it, but not bad. I only recommend using real butter in this recipe. This is the type of comfort food that you can have a big bowl of, climb back into bed, and eat under the warmth of the comforters when it is freezing cold outside....I love it! I usually double the recipe and freeze one dish for use later. Just thaw in refrigerator and reheat if you want it warm.

Delicious! I cut this recipe in half to serve 3 of us & used three 6oz ramekins. The topping was not exactly what I expected, based on making apple crisps in the past, but as it turned out we really enjoyed the caramel-like flavor of it. DH who generally doesn't like the flavor of cinnamon, really liked it in this dish. We'll be sure to make the full recipe next time! :D Thanks for sharing, MemphisMommy!
