For the topping

55g rolled oats
45g plain flour
75g brown sugar
45g pecans, toasted, chopped
Pinch fine salt
90g cold unsalted butter, cut into bits

For the filling

4 medium baking apples, such as Braeburn, Rome, or Golden Delicious
Unsweetened whipped cream, optional
1) Preheat the oven to 190C/Gas 5. Lightly butter 6 (175ml) ramekins.

2) Whisk the oats, flour, brown sugar, pecans, and salt in a medium bowl. Rub in the butter with your fingertips until it is in even, pea-size pieces. Peel, core, and coarsely chop the apples and divide evenly among the ramekins. Scatter the crisp topping evenly over the fruit in each ramekin.

3) Transfer the ramekins to a baking sheet and cook until the fruit bubbles around the sides and the top is golden, about 30 mins.

4) Preheat a broiler. Place the crisps about 10cm from the broiler and cook until golden brown, about 30 secs. Let cool about 15 mins before serving. Serve warm with whipped cream, if using.
