Mini apple crisp

Standard

Once again, we are the lucky recipients of some good stuff growing over our side of the fence, thank you again to our neighbours! In the summer, we got their beautiful roses, and now, we have an abundance of apples, just hanging over our side of the fence, just waiting to be picked.
So, I had my wonderful husband climb up a ladder yesterday to pick some of the fruits of their labour…apples.

So, I cut the apples into small pieces…

Added about a cup of oats, a cup of brown sugar, a teaspoon of flour and a bit of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla…

Then I dug around in the freezer because I thought I had a couple pie shells, but all I could find was the mini pie shells. So, I scooped about a tablespoon into each one.

Then, cooked them at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes.
They turned out really well…maybe the kids and I will bring over a few to thank the neighbors…

The problem was that I still had about 5 cups of apples left! So, I looked on line and found a few recipes for apple butter. I will post the recipe once I have a chance.
