Chocolate Chip Cookie Apple Crumble For Two combine chocolate chip cookies and apples into one fall treat.
It seems that the latest trend in desserts is fruit with cookies on top. Or at least that’s what I kept seeing on Pinterest. Of course I can’t find the link to the first recipe I saw, but I believe it was oatmeal cookies on top of peach cobbler. Another one used snickerdoodles. Then I saw a chocolate chip cookie crumble and fell in love. You can pretty much win my heart with chocolate chip cookies and knew I had to make my own. Seeing that I had a ton of apples in the kitchen, I made a fall version with Chocolate Chip Cookie Apple Crumble For Two. In my mind I keep calling it a crisp, but because there are oats in the topping, it is technically a crumble. And yes, it’s another dessert for two recipe. I can’t help but be obsessed with making them! There are so many possibilities for small batch desserts when you own ramekins (Amazon affiliate link). Do you like it when I make small desserts like this? Or is it getting redundant? Whatever your answer may be, I hope you will at least give these mini apple crumbles a try!
I first made these crumbles the day Dad and I picked apples. Since I was feeding four people, I doubled the recipe. You can even cut the recipe in half for a single serving crumble. And if you’re reading this post when it’s not apple season, you can use almost any fruit you want – pears, peaches, raspberries, even strawberries.
As I’m sitting here typing and looking out the window, the leaves are starting to change colors. Although fall is taking its time to arrive, I can’t wait. I recently discovered a hiking trail near me that goes through the woods to this (not impressive) waterfall. As I walked through the trees, I couldn’t help but imagine its beauty once the leaves fully change, especially since there are a few wooden bridges too. I can’t wait to go back with my camera and capture fall.
