Hi everyone! Amanda here from Old House to New Home, sharing a deliciously easy, fall recipe. While I could eat apple flavored desserts all year long, nothing is better on a chilly night than a warm and cinnamony apple dessert! But this apple crisp recipe is not your average fruit dessert, it is made in individual serving sizes and can be done in the microwave! So whenever that apple crisp craving hits, you can make this easy dessert recipe in just minutes!

When my husband and I were first married and childless, we got into the habit of making mug cakes almost nightly after dinner! It was so nice to have dessert on demand in only minutes, with nearly zero effort. Well, once kids came, we found ourselves having dessert less often, unless just recently when my daughter discovered mug cakes from YouTube videos! She asks for them weekly, and since they are so easy, I often oblige.

I have had fun coming up with new easy microwave mug cake recipes, but have been craving an apple version and knew I had to experiment a little until I found the perfect recipe! After a few tries, I have perfected these Mug Apple Crisps and love how they are like a little cup of fall, in one single serving!

I live in the mountains of PA and fall is in full swing here! Trips to the pumpkin patch and apple orchard each weekend and beautiful leaves on our mountaintops always remind me that this is my favorite time of the year. Not only is the weather beautiful, but you can’t beat fall foods! It is the season of comfort food and apples, and that is one of my favorite combinations! This Mug Apple Crisp Recipe is the perfect end to any fall evening!
