Mmmm, I love Fall . . . don't care for winter much but love fall! This week is supposed to get really cold, I so look forward to it . . . it seems like the sky and air and world are totally gray for a good 3 or 4 months while we are hit with mountains of snow!
In preparation of such lovely events to come I made a comfort food that I remember making all the time for my family as a teen . . . Apple Crisp. However after digging through my cupboards and eyeing my beautiful Honey Crisp apples that were supposed to be coated in caramel and candy on Halloween I came up with a goody that curls my toes it is so good!
These little Apple Crisp Cups turned out pretty cute and very tasty! My hubby and I are all about watching a movie tonight, curling up in a blanket and indulging in a little dessert . . . of Apple Crisp Cups! I drizzled a little caramel on them and wa-hoo did that knock the ball of the park! I highly recommend drizzling anything and everything with caramel! (We did happily share them with our next door neighbors . . . they may not have lasted through the night if we had kept them! Augh!)
Apple Crisp Cups
Recipe by: Emily
5 cups thinly sliced, peeled Apples, I used Honey Crisp and Granny Smith
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
3 Tsp Butter
1 tsp Cinnamon
8 sheets Philo Dough (You could also use puff pastry dough)
1. Melt 2 tsp of butter in a large skillet, add brown sugar, cinnamon, and apples. Cook the apples until tender and the brown sugar has thickened into caramel. Set apples aside.
2. Layer 5 sheets of Philo dough with melted butter. Cut the stack of buttered dough into 8 equal sections and place cut dough into a muffin tin creating cups. (cut, stack and butter the remaining sheets until all 12 cups of a muffin tin are full). Back the philo cups for 5 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven.
3. After the cups have baked for 5 minutes,fill each cup equally with the cooked apples slices and then sprinkle 1 heaping tsp of the crisp topping on top of each cup. Continue baking in the oven for another 5 minutes or until bubbly and browned. Drizzle with caramel sauce and serve with Ice Cream or whipped cream if desired. Enjoy!
2 1/2 Tbsp Flour
