One of the best things about holiday baking is that cinnamon goes into almost everything. I love walking back into the house while apple pie or pumpkin pie is baking in the oven. So since apples are cheap and in season right now, I’m trying to find different ways to use them. I found a great recipe for a really crispy Apple Crumble that’s juicy and tart. Making a crumble is easier than an apple pie itself because you won’t need to roll out a crust. Your house will smell like a warm winter while this is in the oven. I baked this today during lunch and it was a hit. I cannot wait for you to smell these baked apples in your kitchen!
Let’s get started! You’ll need:
- 8 cups of sliced and peeled Granny Smith apples
- 2 cups of dark brown sugar divided
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup of unsalted butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups of wall purpose flour
- 1 cup of chopped walnuts, divided
- Vanilla ice cream (optional)
1. Transfer apples into 2 large casserole dishes or one 9x13x2 baking dish. Sprinkle 1/4 of the brown sugar and the cinnamon and toss lightly to coat.
2. In a mixing bowl cream the butter and remaining brown sugar. Add eggs, flour, and 1/2 the walnuts. Mix together and spread over the apples. Sprinkle remaining walnuts on stop.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Make 12 servings.
