Apple Crisp Cups


Don't you just love bites of "goodness"??? These are perfect for
your morning cup of coffee or tea. A perfect little treat.

Apple Crisp Cups
3 large McIntosh appled - peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup water
2 tablespoons white sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1 1/2 cups butter

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 4, 12-cup mini muffin tins.
2) Mix apples, white sugar, water , and 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
together in a saucepan, and bring to a simmer over medium-low
heat, stirring occasionally for 6 to 7 min, remove from heat.
3) Combine flour, oats, brown sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and
nutmeg in a large bowl, cut the butter into the flour mixture with
a pastry cutter until the mixture looks like coarse crumbs. Place a
heaping tablespoon of the crust mixture into a mini muffin cup, and
press it into the cup so that it covers the bottom and pushes up the
sides of cup. Make the crust go all the way up to the top of the mini
muffin cup, and patch holes with more mixture. There will be crust
mixture left over. Place about 2 teaspoons of apple filling in the
crust. Sprinkle about 1 teaspoon of the remaining crust mixture
over the filling.
4) Bake in preheated oven or until golden brown, 15-20 minutes.
