Apple Crumble

I’ve wanted to have an apple dessert that doesn’t require the fuss of a crust. Sometimes I just don’t want to bother with making the crust, and Claire wants to help make things too. So I found a crumble recipe. The first version didn’t turn out superbly, so I tinkered with the ingredients, with the following result.

It was sublime. It’s a bit richer and sweeter than a pie (so smaller servings satisfy), since a pie crust is basically flour, butter, and little salt, while the crumble has sugar and spices in it. It really turned out well. Here’s my recipe (for a 10-inch wide, 2-inch deep pie pan):

Apple Crumble

6-8 large apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1 cup white sugar
2 Tbsp. tapioca (or 1.5 Tbsp. flour)
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. nutmeg

Mix the apple slices together with the other ingredients and put it into a 10-inch pie pan.

2 cups flour
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. nutmeg
2 sticks of butter
1 ¾ cups rolled oats

Mix the first five ingredients together. Cut the butter into small pieces and use your fingers to mix butter into flour mixture until it looks like coarse sand. Mix in oats. Put the mixture on top of the apple slices; press down lightly. Bake at 425F for 10 minutes, then at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until the top is golden brown.
