This Apple Crisp for two is the perfect dessert for an at home dinner with a loved one (or soon to be). It’s filled with Filipino ingredients such as coco jam, calamansi juice, pinipig, and pili nuts.
It’s that time of year when having a dinner date at home is ideal. It’s chilly enough for cuddles and warm desserts.
This Apple Crisp For Two can be prepared ahead and just before you sit down for dinner, pop it in the oven and set the timer for 30 minutes. In half an hour you will have a gooey, crispy and warm apple dessert. Ahh, so romantic.
The cool thing, in my opinion about this Apple Crisp for two is that we use many Filipino ingredients in it like coco jam, calamansi juice, pinipig and pili nuts.
This is what you will need for the filling:
This is what you will need for the crispy topping:
First start by prepping your apples. Peel and then take out the core. Then slice each apple into 12 somewhat thin wedges.
Place the apples in a small bowl and add the calamansi juice. Mix well making sure all the apples are coated.
Add in the coco jam, vanilla and cinnamon. Mix well again. Arrange the apples in a 4-5 inch mini baking dish.
To make the crispy topping mix together the oats, flour, pili nuts, sugar, pinipig and cinnamon. Mix well and then add that mixture into the butter. Use your hands to massage the butter into the dry ingredients until you get crumbs.
Pile the crispy topping over the apples and bake at 350C for 30 minutes.
Once the Apple Crisp is done baking leave to rest on the counter for 10 minutes.
Just before serving top with a scoop of vanilla or coconut ice cream.
And finish with a drizzle of coco jam.
It’s best enjoyed the day that you made it.
