1. Pear or Apple Crisp

Crisps and crumbles are fantastic for sharing, but when you only want one bite, it is much easier to take all the ingredients that go into the traditional dessert, and tailor it to one person. Ramekins are an ideal baking dish for making the single-serving crisp from Food.com.


  • 1 apples or 1 pear, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats
  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • ⅛ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter

Directions: Place fruit in small baking dish. In separate bowl, combine all remaining ingredients, then sprinkle over fruit. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 25 minutes or microwave on high for 2½ minutes or until fruit is tender.
