Single Serving Freezer Apple Crisps, an easy, make-ahead dessert recipe that uses exactly one apple! @sweetpeasaffron

A freezer-friendly individual-sized apple crisp recipe that uses exactly one apple per serving.

Whoa.  What a week-end!

I know, it’s currently Wednesday and I’m only just starting to get back into the swing of things.  We were out of town for my brother’s wedding, and it was a ridiculously fun and busy week-end, and such a gorgeous wedding!  And now I finally have a sister 😀

It was a week-end full of firsts for Kai: first plane ride where he had to sit in his own seat and wear his own seatbelt (he was not a fan), first time wearing a suit, first time getting to show his dance moves off to everyone.

We are all taking our time getting back into the routine this week, but luckily I had this apple crisp recipe all ready to share with you guys!

Apple crisp is not very photogenic…in fact no crisp is photogenic.  I had a hard time with these guys.

But whether they look amazing or not, they are so…practical!

I’ve been experimenting with freezer crisps for awhile now.  I tried using peaches back in the summer but they released way too much water after freezing.  So I switched to apples.

There are so many awesome things about these apple crisps: they are individual sized (so you don’t have to share!), they use exactly one apple, so if you are anything like me and don’t quite get around to eating that apple before it gets soft, you now have an easy way to use it up.

And they are freezer friendly!  Just wrap in some foil, then some plastic wrap and seal with an elastic band.  Store for up to 2 months.

I had wanted these to go straight into the oven from the freezer, but upon doing my homework, I learned that glass dishes can’t go from cold to hot quickly without the risk of explosion…and we do NOT want anyone to have any explosions in their ovens.  So I recommend defrosting them first in the fridge, then place them on the counter at room temperature as the oven pre-heats.

So.  Another freezer-friendly recipe.  What do you think?  More freezer recipes?
