Baked Apple Crisps
Tomorrow is the anniversary of our first kiss, many moons ago. I know that once you get married other anniversaries are supposed to melt away, but I figure- why not just celebrate more? We always celebrate the same way– by going to Dougherty’s, the pub where we decided on a whim to gamble our years-long friendship. Thankfully it was a successful gamble. At Dougherty’s we’ll get burgers and fries, people watch and maybe even try to figure out what made that night so unusual. Who knows. I just remember being surprised.
Afterwards we’ll come home and I’ll pop two of these in the oven– individual apple crisps. They’re each a perfect one serving, one apple baked with cinnamon, brown sugar, and butter. Sweet, but not too sweet. Filling, but not too heavy. A special dessert to celebrate a special day.
Baked Apple Crisps, For Two
2 medium size red apples
2 tbsp butter
1/2 cup dry oats
3 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp flour
1 tsp cinnamon
Peel and slice apples. Combine 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp sugar, and apples in a pan. Cook over low heat until they soften slightly. Divide into two small serving dishes and turn your oven to 350. In your pan, melt the rest of your butter. Pour over oats, remaining sugar, flour, and cinnamon. Toss. Divide the topping evenly over the two dishes. Bake for 35 minutes.

Love the individual crisp ramekins! My husband and I have only been married for two years, but we STILL celebrate the anniversary of our first date, 9 years ago, every January! I’m glad someone else out there does the same, and I agree completely – why pass up an extra occasion to celebrate and reminisce? (Gorgeous tea towels, by the way – as pretty as the apple crisps!)

Thanks Aimee! Glad to hear we’re not the only ones who celebrate all the anniversaries!
