Apple Crisp

Sometimes it is hard to come up with a spooky names for my dishes. So, I take suggestions from the kids. This dish was named by my son. I thought it was pretty clever. I would never have thought of it. Grave dirt? Would you like some ice cream with that grave dirt? My husband said it was the best apple crisp (grave dirt) he has ever had.
Grave Dirt aka Apple Crisp 
6 apples, peeled and sliced thinly
2 Tbsp sugar
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/3 cup uncooked rolled oats
1/3 cup all purpose flour
4 Tbsp cold unsalted butter, cubed

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Lightly coat 3 small ramekins with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt.
  4. Spoon the apple mixture equally into the ramekins.
  5. In the same bowl, combine the brown sugar, oats, and flour. 
  6. Blend the butter into the brown sugar mixture until well incorporated.
  7. Sprinkle the brown sugar mixture evenly over the ramekins.
  8. Bake the apple crisp for 30 minutes or until the apples are tender and the streusel is crispy. 
  9. Allow the apple crisp to cool for 30 minutes before serving.
