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 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!
And not only that, but they stack well under the practiced hands of a 16-year old!
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.
I do hope that these little treats find a way to your table soon. I do think you and your family will love them. Pin the recipe for your future reference.
