Preheat your oven to 350F
Prepare your bowls or ramekins with a bit of butter, then add chopped apples. If you're using soup or cereal bowls, one apple is all you will need for each bowl. Sprinkle with cinnamon, stir and set to the side.
For each cereal bowl, mix together
1/4 cup oats
2 tbsp brown sugar
sprinkle of cinnamon
2 tbsp cold butter
If you're using smaller ramekins, the above topping mixture will fill about four ramekins.
I find it easier to mix the topping with your fingers, but a pastry fork would work well also. Top your apples with the mixture, then bake for 15 minutes, until the topping is crunchy on the top.
Caution! The dish you used to bake your apple crisp in will be extremely hot, as will the contents! Let it cool for a couple of minutes before eating. Best served with vanilla ice cream or a large dollop of whip cream!
