Mini Apple Crisps FAQs
1. What kind of apples are best for making apple crisp?
The best apples to use are tart, firm apples. I suggest granny smith (tart and crisp) or honeycrisp (sweet, tart, and crisp, but more expensive).
2. Why are your apples diced so small? Do they have to be? I like using diced apples when making apple crisp because they bake quicker and are easier to eat. No, you don’t have to cut the apples so small.
3. Where can I buy the disposable baking molds you used? I used nine of these disposable paper baking cups because they are perfect for parties and for sharing. No dishes to clean after dessert! You can also use ramekins, mini tart pans, or mini pie pans.
4. Can these mini apple crisps be made in cupcake wrappers in a muffin pan? No, the common cupcake wrappers aren’t sturdy enough. But they could be made in silicone muffin baking cups.
5. How can I make gluten-free mini apple crisps? Swap the ingredients in this recipe that contain gluten for a gluten-free option. Use gluten-free flour, gluten-free quick-cooking oats, gluten-free baking soda, and gluten-free baking powder.
