apple crumble | fall recipe trilogy ~ #2

aple crumbleOne of my all-time favourite desserts: apple crumble.  Digging into a crispy, buttery topping to reach the soft, cinnamony apples hiding beneath – that’s just so satisfying!  That’s not even the best part.  Imagine eating it!apple crumbleApple crumble is a simple dessert to bake, much more so than pie, and just as scrumptious.  I like to use a crisp and tart apple variety.  Adding a little oatmeal to the topping makes it a little chewy.  I like to add some spices as well, for some more flavor.apple crumble

  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened

Preheat oven to 375F.  Using a little butter, grease a pie dish.  Arrange apples in dish.  Combine water, cinnamon and sugar and pour over apples.

Enjoy!
