Apple Crumble

I have a confession: I love apple crumble. It feels so homey and warm and autumnal. It is a dessert comfort food that is simple and easy and oh so yummy. I tend to toss a bit of cinnamon and maybe nutmeg in. I also don’t peel and slice the apples, just core and wedge them.

2/3 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup shortening (half butter)
4 cups pared, cored and sliced tart apples

Combine flour and brown sugar and cut in shortening to make crumbly mixture. Arrange pared, sliced apples in a shallow baking dish (10 x6 x 2), sprinkle sugar mixture over top, and bake in a moderate oven (375° F.) about 30 minutes or until top is brown and crunchy and apples tender. 5 to 6 servings.

  1. I haven’t had apple crumble in years. But I do have to say that one of the things that I love about it is that it’s so easy to play with the recipe and make it for one or two people.
