I actually made this recipe a few weeks ago…sorry for the delay of something so delicious! The original recipe is for a pear crisp, but since we ‘re crazy about warm apple desserts in our house, I decided to swap. (but I bet the pears are amazing too!) This recipe is SO easy to make and is heavenly when served right out of the oven. (no worries, it reheats well too) It goes great with some vanilla bean ice cream too. And, I actually used to hate crumbles on top of desserts, but they eventually grew on me. This crumble is downright amazing…the nuts add a nice warm dimension.
I’ll actually have another amazing apple dessert recipe tomorrow…. : )
4 Granny Smith Apples
⅔ cups Sugar
¼ teaspoons Salt
1 and ½ cups All-purpose Flour
⅓ cups Sugar
⅓ cups firmly packed Brown Sugar
½ teaspoons Cinnamon
½ cups Pecans, Very Finely Chopped
1 stick Butter, Melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Peel, core, and dice apples. Place in a bowl and stir together with 2/3 cup sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. Stir together. Drizzle melted butter gradually, stirring with a fork as you go until all combined.
Pour apples into a baking dish; top with crumb topping.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Place pan on top rack of oven for an additional 10 minutes, or until topping is golden brown.
