My cranberry apple crisp is the perfect warm and cozy dessert for the holidays – sweet, tart and delicious!
And making it in these single serving ramekins is super convenient since you bake and serve in the same dish. ✅😎🙌🏻
I must insist on serving the a la mode – with vanilla ice cream. It just makes it so much better.
There is just something about the combination of the sweet-and-tart fruit, the crunchy sugar-and-oat topping and the creamy, melty ice cream. 😋 It is dessert perfection y’all!
I did not peel my apples either. This was partially due to laziness. But! I was using Granny Smiths with the pretty green skin, and as soon as I saw the red-and-green color combo, it totally made me think of the holidays.❤️💚🎄 But feel free to peel yours if you wish.😉
Last of all, if you prefer to make one big full-sized serving dish of this cranberry apple crisp…you can double the recipe and use a standard-sized pie plate (or the baking dish of your choosing)! Much like this version.

Cranberry Apple Crisp (Single Serving)
- 2 Granny Smith apples (or apple of your choice, diced)
- 1 cup fresh cranberries, rinsed
- 2 Tablespoons granulated white sugar
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour, divided
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, uncooked
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 2 Tablespoons chopped walnuts
- pinch of salt
- vanilla ice cream for topping
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl, stir together the apples, cranberries, granulated white sugar and half the flour (1/8 cup).
- For the topping: In a separate bowl, stir together the other half of the flour, walnuts, oats, cinnamon and brown sugar.
- Use your hands to work in 2 tablespoons of butter into the topping mixture. Keep squeezing the chunks of butter into the toppings mixture until well-combined and topping will resemble large crumb-y chunks.
Place five small (4 ounce) ramekins on a baking sheet.
Spoon the fruit mixture evenly into the five ramekins. If you have any leftover sugar or flour, sprinkle it over the top of the fruit.
- Top each ramekin with some of the topping.
- Bake at 375 for about 25 minutes.
Top with vanilla ice cream prior to serving.
