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
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.
Surely we’re not alone when we say the inventor of streusel crumb topping is a GENIUS! You don’t have to be an expert to whip up a batch and add on top of cherry pie filling to make Cherry Crisp, this Saturday’s sweet treat. Simple and delicious – the perfect combination!
1 (21 ounce) can cherry pie filling
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1 Spread pie filling into a greased 9-inch square baking dish (or individual ceramic pie pans like we did).
2 Combine the next six ingredients in a bowl.
3 Cut in butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs; sprinkle over filling.
4 Bake at 375 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown.
5 Top with ice cream and whipped cream and dig in!
