2/3 cup rolled oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup dark brown sugar
1/3 cup pecans, toasted, chopped
Pinch fine salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
4 medium baking apples, such as mutsu, rome, or golden delicious
Unsweetened whipped cream, optional

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly butter a oven safe pan or 6 (6-ounce) ramekins.

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 and place in pan or divide evenly among the ramekins. Scatter the crisp topping evenly over the fruit.

If using ramekins, transfer to a baking sheet, or place pan in the oven and cook until the fruit bubbles around the sides and the top is golden, about 30 minutes.

Preheat a broiler. Place the crisps about 4 inches from the broiler and cook until golden brown, about 30 seconds. Let cool about 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm with whipped cream.
