Does the order of words in the title sound about right? I really couldnt figure out what to call this dessert for the life of me. You would think something so small and simple would be easy to name!? Nope. I felt like I needed to include that it's made in a skillet and that it's spiced. But, skillet spiced apple crisp made it sound like I used a skillet to spice it and mini spiced skillet made it sound like the skillet was spiced and not the apples. Sigh. These are real life #foodbloggerproblems.
Anyway, this is the first apple crisp I've ever made! I've always wanted to make one but my family doesn't like trying new things. Apple pie is sort of their thing and always will be. But it hit me the other day, that if I want to try something new, I should just try it as a mini version first. That way, if they like it, they like it, and if they don't, they don't. And it won't go to waste! I'm so brilliant sometimes.
So, I made this in a mini skillet, and used ginger and cardamom to spice it, as per our Mystery Dish ingredients for this month. And I topped it with a vanilla bean ice cream, and it was marvelous! My brother's response was "That's all you made?" Ermmm, yes mister I only like my apples in apple pie.
This recipe is super easy to double or even triple. And if you're not into heavily spiced crisps, simply swap out the spices I used for something more delicate. Apple crisp is one of those awesome versatile desserts :)
