The dishes I make are rarely identical from time to time; I use whatever ingredients I have on hand, and rarely have the "correct" amounts. This apple crisp may be made with more or less of EACH ingredient; the flour and the brown sugar may be packed or loose depending upon how sweet you want the desert to be. I made this in mini-cupcake tins, baking for only 25 minutes and had pop-in-your-mouth versions.
1Put sliced apples into baking dish...8"x8" or other size, greased or ungreased depending upon the bakeware. Be fussy and lay them out neatly...or not.
2You may add cinnamon as you combine brown sugar, softened butter, and flour. Mixture should be crumbly.
3Sprinkle crumbles atop the apples. Sprinkle cinnamon, if you choose to do so.
4Bake at 350 (and fight off the family whose noses are filling with the fantastic fragrance wafting through the house) for about 1 hour. NOTE: If you divide the recipe and use 2 smaller baking dishes or souffle bowls, decrease the time appropriately!
