Apple Crumble

2 Nov

My mother in law made this recipe a few weeks ago and sent a portion home with me. I thought it was so good, I didn’t even share it with my husband. šŸ™‚ I adapted this from a Martha Stewart recipe. The original recipe is for Apple Cranberry Crumble.

Source: Adapted from Martha Stewart


  • 1 1/2 pounds apples, about 3 medium
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen cranberries coarsely chopped (I omitted)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • coarse salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves, coarsely chopped (I omitted)
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
  • 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, not quick cooking
  • 3 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
  1. PreheatĀ oven to 425 degrees. Quarter apples lengthwise, then thinly slice. Toss in a large bowl with cranberries, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt until evenly coated.
  2. Butter an 8 inch square glass or ceramic baking dish. Mix pecans, flour, oats, brown sugar, and a pinch of salt in a bowl until combined. Work in butter with your fingertips until topping is crumbly, with pea sized chunks.
  3. Spread apple mixture in prepared dish; sprinkle with topping. Bake until filling is bubbling and topping is golden brown, 25-30 minutes. Let cool slightly before serving.
