Cinnamon Apple Crumble
When I think of fall desserts, this warm cinnamon apple crumble recipe always comes to mind. It’s easy to make, delicious and perfect for sharing.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Gently spray eight, 4-inch paper baking cups with cooking spray. Set aside. If you do not have paper baking cups, you can use an 8×8 square baking pan. Metal or glass works best.
In a small bowl, beat the butter, coconut sugar and vanilla extract together. Slowly add the AP flour until a dough begins to form. Evenly split the dough into eight portions and then gently press the dough in the bottom of the baking cups. Bake for 10 minutes or until the center is set. Remove from the oven and set aside.
Next, we will prepare the filling. Add 4 tablespoons of butter into a saucepan over medium / low heat. You want the butter to melt but not brown.
Peel and dice your apples. You’ll want the apples to be slightly larger than a dime in size. Also, make sure you do not have any seeds.
Next, you’ll toss the diced apples with the AP flour until the apples are lightly coated with flour.
Add the apples into the saucepan with the butter. Next, you’ll add the lemon juice, water, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla flavor and a pinch of salt. Stir until well combined.
Stir and cook the apples until they begin to soften but are not mushy. I cooked mine for 10-15 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
Next, we will prepare the crumble. In a small mixing bowl, combine the oats, butter, AP flour, brown sugar and chopped walnuts. Using a fork, stir everything together until the butter is evenly distributed and a crumble begins to form.
Finally, we will assemble the dish. Spoon the apple filling on top of the par-baked crust. Sprinkle with some of the crumble and repeat until all of the cups are filled. Bake for 15 -18 minutes or until the crumble is a light golden-brown color.
Serve warm and enjoy!
