The Best Individual Serving Fruit Crisp

 

I don’t know about you, but I have to have a dessert every night. And I mean EVERY night. I know I’m weird, but I’m not a huge chocolate fan…how many of you just gasped at that? For shame. I’m sure many of you are shaking your heads at me. Or maybe you’re not since you’re reading this blog post about a dessert that isn’t chocolate. 😉

A long, long time ago, long before I remember…anyone else break out in song? lol. OK. Seriously, I don’t remember how long ago it was that I wanted a dessert but my hubby didn’t. So I decided to search for individual desserts. I came across a lot of chocolate ones but as I stated previously, I’m not a hug chocolate fan.

Then I saw a recipe for a peach crisp and knew I needed to try it. For the next six months I had that dessert EVERY night! No lie. I love love LOVE a good peach crisp! I had the recipe memorized since I made it so often. Well then I got pregnant with baby number 5 and was sicker than a dog and stopped eating them and forgot the recipe.

So after much trial and error and needing to make my life a little easier, I created this recipe! Now, I have my crumble topping all pre-made. I only need to make it once a week and I’m good for the week! Go me! (So yes, I’m back to eating it every night. Sigh.) Only now, I’m having a peach and blueberry cobbler every night.

I’ve been asked to share my recipe so here it is. And I’m a visual learner, so I made a little video of how I make it. It take me less than 10 minutes to make it when I have to make more of the topping. But when I’ve already made the topping it only takes me less than 2 minutes to throw it all together. Talk about and easy treat! I hope ya’ll enjoy.

I love, love, love a peach crisp but I don't want to make a huge pan every night since I'm the only one who eats it, that's why I created this recipe. I make a big batch of the crumble topping so it's quick and easy to make individual crisps any (or every) night that I'm craving this dessert.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 C Flour
  • 3/4 C Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 C Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 C Salted Sweet Cream Butter

For the Filling:

  • 3/4 C Fresh or Frozen fruit
  • 1 1/2 tsp Flour
  • 1-3 tsp Sugar to taste
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla optional

Instructions

  • 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. (Line a cookie sheet or oven safe pan with either parchment paper or aluminum foil to catch the spillage for easy clean up.) 
  • 2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine 3/4 c. flour, oats, brown sugar and cinnamon. Mix. Then cut in butter with a pastry blender/cutter until a crumb mixture forms (pea-sized clumps). Set aside.
  • 3. In an 8 oz. ramekin dish, place your frozen fruit. Microwave for 30 - 60 seconds until softened. 
  • 4. Sprinkle the sugar over the fruit (add 1 to 3 tsp depending on your preference for sweetness. Add a little and taste to determine if it is sweet enough for you. Add more as needed). Sprinkle the 1 1/2 tsp flour over the fruit and stir until mostly incorporated.
  • 5. Top fruit filling with about 1/4 to 1/2 cup of crumble topping. Enough to cover all the fruit.
  • 6. Place ramekin on prepared pan and place in oven. Bake 35-37 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool for 10 - 15 minutes so the topping is chewy. Serve with ice cream, whipped cream or whatever you fancy. Enjoy!
