Easy Honey Apple Crisp in Mason Jars
I have the perfect fall dessert for you. And here are some of my favorite reasons I pull this recipe out to share;
- It’s DELICIOUS!
- It’s EASY to make.
- It’s my alternative to apple pie and eliminates the crust.
- By using honey, you reduce the amount of granulated sugar that you would use in a traditional pie.
- Baked in a mason jar means you have built in portion control!
So now, get baking! Here’s the recipe to print & try;
- 5 apples, large
- 3 tablespoons water
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¾ cup brown sugar, light or dark
- 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
- ½ cup flour, all purpose
- ½ cup rolled oats, old fashioned
Pre-heat the oven to 375 degrees.
Wash, peel, core and dice the apples. Place them into a bowl.
Mix the water, honey & cinnamon together and stir it into the diced apples gently until the apples are fully coated.
Fill six 8 oz. glass mason jars three-quarters full with the mixture, packing it down.
In a separate bowl, mix the brown sugar, oats & flour together in a bowl with a fork. Using a pastry cutter (or a fork & knife) cut the butter into the mixture. It will be done when it’s all mixed well and the butter has broken into small cut, coated pieces.
Evenly distribute the topping to the individual jars heaping it over the top just a little.
Bake the jars on a baking sheet for approximately 25 to 30 minutes; until the topping is golden brown & the fruit mixture is bubbling.
Serve warm with Honey Cream on top.
Prep Ahead: This recipe can be baked ahead, covered and kept in the refrigerator for several days to make entertaining easy.
Or, you can even prep it ahead to bake. You can add the covers and keep them in the refrigerator for a day or two. Remove the covers and bake the day you plan to serve. However, let the jars set out of the refrigerator for 30 minutes before placing them in the hot oven to bake.
Extras? Simply put the covers on the mason jars and keep the extra crisps in the refrigerator for up to five days.
Little Chefs! You can peel and slice the apples, let little chefs dice the apples with a plastic knife.
