Sweets Reimagined

Holy apples! Our fridge looks like Johnny Appleseed came for a visit! We have so many apples from our apple picking trip last weekend that it is necessary we apple treat again. Good thing there are so many yummy apple desserts. Apple crisp is #1 in our opinion. But we discovered a recipe that can top it, Cookie Butter Apple Crisp baked in cute little jars. Individual servings, we’ll take two please!

Cookie Butter Apple Crisp

 

Ingredients (2 servings)
    For the apple filling:
    • 1 large apple (or 2 smaller apples), peeled, cored, and chopped
    • 2 tsp lemon juice
    • 2 tbsp brown sugar
    • 1 tbsp flour
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 2-3 dashes of nutmeg
    • For the cookie butter crisp
    • 1/2 cup flour
    • 1/4 cup rolled oats
    • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
    • 2 tbsp chilled butter, cubed
    • 2 tbsp cookie butter
    • 1 tbsp brown sugar
    Instructions
    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
    In a small bowl, combine the apples through the nutmeg for the apple filling. Set aside.
    In another small bowl, whisk together the flour, oats, cinnamon, and brown sugar for the crisp topping. Cut in the chilled butter until the mixture is crumbly. Now mix in the cookie butter. Set aside.
    Spray the insides of two 12 oz glass jars with cooking spray. Evenly distribute the apple filling between the two jars. Now top each jar with the cookie butter crisp dough.
    Place both filled jars in a baking pan and fill with about an inch of water.
    Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the apples are bubbly and the crisp topping is golden brown.
    All to cool to warm before serving.
    Top with whipped cream or ice cream, if you wish.
