Apple Crumble
Author: Heather Bursch
  • 4-5 pounds of tart apples (Granny Smith, Cortland, Haralson)
  • 3 tablespoons of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon of cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar packed (or less if you'd like a more tart crisp!)
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed lightly
  • 2½ Cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup flour (I often use gluten free all purpose flour)
  • 2 sticks of butter (1 cup), chilled and cut into ½ inch cubes
  1. Preheat oven to 375°.
  2. Peel apples, quarter them and slice each quarter into 3 chunks or slices.
  3. Toss with 3 tablespoons of lemon juice then stir in cinnamon and ⅓ cup brown sugar. Set aside.
  4. Mix 1 cup remaining brown sugar, oats and flour together and with your fingers smash each little piece of butter into the oatmeal mixture until it all starts to come together into cookie dough form.
  5. Mixture will still be crumbly and loose, just get the butter as smashed in and spread about as you can.
  6. Butter a 9x12 baking dish or individual dishes.
  7. Place your apples and lemon/sugar mixture into the pan and then take your crumble topping and spread evenly over your apples.
  8. Bake for 55 minutes or until topping is bubbly and browned.
This recipe can be vegan if you swap out equal parts butter for coconut oil instead.
Makes 10 servings.
