You can thank me later! I am sharing my recipe for Individual Apple Crumbles.  Enjoy!

For years, whenever we go to my parents home for dinner, mom prepares a dessert which is always a variation on the same theme.  It’s become expected that Grammie will be making an berry crisp or a berry crumble or a berry grunt or a berry cobbler for dinner, you could also substitute peach and/or apple for the berry, so the combinations are vast.

 Not only would we all be REALLY disappointment without the crisp/crumble/grunt/cobbler for dessert, but it would rob us of our long-running giggle because none of us knows the difference between a crisp or a crumble or a grunt or a cobbler even though Grammie announces with culinary authority that ‘tonight’s dessert is a berry grunt but last time it was a crumble.”

So, with great respect to Grammie and in homage to her desserts, I prepared individual apple crumbles, made in our small cast iron skillets, for dessert.  And I can say that these are definitely crumbles because I crumbled the topping over the apples.

I used my little cast iron skillet for these crumbles, but you could easily use ramekins. We love those skillet brownies and always look for ways to use these little cuties.A recipe for individual apple crumbles.

I used Golden Delicious apples for this dessert solely because organic apples are so expensive and these were on sale! However, in doing a little investigation, it seems that a great deal of research has gone into determining the best baking apples and Golden Delicious apples always seem to top the charts!

In the interest of keeping our sugar consumption under control, we don’t often have desserts.  When we do, I usually try to reduce the sugar in the recipe.  Sugar, like salt, is one of those things whose consumption can creep up on you.

I do believe that the more you have of these elements, the more you get used to them and then need more to satisfy the need.  I kept sugar out of the apple mix, but did use some in the topping of these individual apple crumbles.A recipe for individual apple crumbles.

      Hey there Lynn! Just returned from a fantastic trip to Germany this summer…beautiful country and wonderful people. Thanks for your kind comments about my ‘crumbles’! Just got a view of your pumpkin squares and it was meant to be. We literally just walked in the house from a weekend visiting our daughter and I was thinking out loud in the car about what kind of pumpkin dessert I should make for dinner and kismet! I’ll be making your squares! Love back at you from the US. Lynn

    Yum, these look so great! I love that they are individual sizes. Those pans are awesome, might need to pick me up a few of those bad boys! I can’t wait to try this, have a whole bag of apples sitting around that needs to be put to good use! Thanks for sharing with us at #ThrowbackThursday and hope to see you this week!

    I love apple crumble or crisp, in fact, I like a crumble with any fruit and I’m sure we could substitute blueberries or cherries etc. in this recipe! How fun this will be! And the individual skillets? Love them! How fun you could make individual pizzas or “garbage plates”/omelets. So cool!!!
