  • 9×9 baking pan
  • Mixing bowls
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring Spoons


For the Filling:

  • six cups apples sliced
  • 1/2 cup brown or white sugar
  • 2 Tbsp corn starch
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon a combination of cardamom, allspice, orange zest, etc. are all good options too. Add in 1/4 tsp increments
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 Tbsp rum optional

For the Crumble:


  • Preheat the Oven and Grease the Pan - Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 9×9 baking pan with butter or oil.
  • Make the Crumble - Combine flour, oats, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking powder. Work in the butter with your hands until shaggy crumbs form. Chill in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  • Three: Make the Filling - Make the filling. Whisk the sugar and cornstarch together in a mixing bowl until no lumps remain. Add the apples, vanilla, lemon juice, salt, and rum, and toss until the apples are evenly coated. Transfer the apples to the baking dish.
  • Top Crumble Over the Fruit - Make an even layer of crumble over the fruit.
  • Bake - Bake the crisp until the filling is bubbling and the crumble is a deep golden brown, about thirty minutes.
  • Now the hardest part: let the crisp cool before slicing it. After that, you can warm up the individual slices, add a scoop of vanilla, and enjoy. Fall is on the table


  • Make sure apples are evenly sliced. A good sharp paring knife will work wonders.
  • Cold butter is essential for making a good crumble.
