Individual Apple Blueberry Crisps

Apples are so bountiful right now and are all around delicious. A week or so ago, I cut them up, added some blueberries and made a phenomenal low calorie treat. (I am in no way a nutritionist or licensed to tell you that these are in fact healthy, but they seemed that way...)

The best part about this recipe is that they are SUPER easy to make. I am willing to bet that even my friend Krystle can make them and she has a hard time boiling water. (That was only put in here in hopes of a laugh. Love you Krystle!)

Individual Apple Blueberry Crisps
Serves: Six (6)

Four (4) large apples, peeled and diced into chunks (I used honey crisps.)
6 ounces fresh or frozen blueberries
2 teaspoons corn starch
1/2 cup crisp topping (to mix in with berries; recipe follows.)
2+ Cups additional crisp topping for the tops of the ramekins; recipe follows.

Crisp Topping: 
5 ounces all-purpose flour; approximately 1 cup
2/3 cup sugar or Truvia
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
6 ounces unsalted butter, cubed and chilled.

Crisp Topping Directions:
Place flour, sugar, and cracker crumbs in large bowl and combine. Work the butter into the dry ingredients with your hands until it is crumbly. Store in the refrigerator for up to a week and use as toppings for cobblers, crisps, or grunts.

Apple Blueberry Crisp Directions: 
Preheat oven to 350°

Place the diced apples and blueberries into a mixing bowl and add in the sugar, cornstarch, and 1/2 cup of the crisp topping. Stir to combine.

Divide the fruit mixture evenly between six (6) 4.5 oz. ramekins. Divide the remaining crisp topping and top each ramekin with crisp topping. Place the ramekins onto a baking sheet and bake on the middle rack for 30-35 minutes or until they are bubbling and the topping is golden brown.

Allow the crisps to cool before tasting them. (Don't forget to add a scoop of ice-cream on the side... if that's your thing.)

Does this recipe look a little bit familiar? Maybe a tiny bit? It's ridiculous close to this one I posted awhile back!
