Individual Apple Cranberry Crisps

I've used this same basic recipe for about 8 years now.  Apples, Cranberries, Orange and Cinnamon.  The combination is just everything.  Ugh, just so good.  Don't skip the orange zest, it does magical things.  I just the same recipe for big crisps, individual crisps or little tarts.  

This new version (same recipe) is made in individual Stoneware Ramekins.  I love this for our little family because it is a small portion that will be gone after one sitting - no big dessert to "need" to finish hanging around.  If you don't have ramekins, you can use these individual disposable tart pans.  They work great for a party, individual portions already assembled, just have to be warmed and topped with ice cream.

Individual Apple Cranberry Crisps
(makes 4)

Filling :
3 apples
1/4 cup of fresh (or frozen) cranberries
1 teaspoon of orange zest
2 tablespoons of orange juice
2 tablespoons of sugar
1 tablespoon of flour
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Crumble Toping :

2/3 cup of flour
1/4 cup of brown sugar
pinch of salt
4 tablespoons of butter, cold

Peel and core the apples and cut them in 1/2" pieces.  Place them in a large bowl.  Add cranberries, zest, juice, sugar, flour and cinnamon.  Toss together until all well coated.  Divide filling amongst 4 ramekins or small tart pans.

For Crumble topping, in a small bowl add flour, brown sugar and salt.  Mix together with a fork.  Cut butter into small pieces and add to flour mix.  With the fork, smash butter into the flour until combined.  You can also squeeze it together with your hands to form the crumbly mixture.  Once combined, crumble a handful of it on top of each ramekin with apple filling.

Place on a parchment lined baking sheet (to make for easy cleanup) and bake for 25-35 minutes until bubbly and browned.  

Serve warm with ice cream.  If you are making them ahead, wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate.  Unwrap and microwave to warm.

It's Apple Season in the store.  I've grouped all of my favorite apple season essentials for your baking pleasure :
