Mmmm… autumn/ fall – it’s in the air, right? I think it’s my absolute favourite season! When there’s that slight chill in the air but you can still sleep with your window a tiny bit open… I love weekend mornings waking up warm and cozy in my bed but able to smell the autumn air. Chilly nights mean comfort food too, right? And what’s more comforting than a crumble for dessert? And since, it’s apple season, for this month’s Kraft Canada #whatscooking assignment, I couldn’t think of a better recipe to share today than one inspired by this apple crisp.
It’s really simple to make too and uses crushed cookies in the crumble part – genius!
- 2 large Granny Smith apples peeled and thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar, divided
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, divided
- butter for lightly greasing the baking dish
- 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
- 57g/ 1/4 cup/ 1/2 stick butter
- 6 Peek Freans Lifestyle Selections Bran Crunch biscuits
- plain or vanilla Greek yoghurt or whipped cream, for serving
- Heat oven to 350°F.
- Toss apples with half each of the sugar and cinnamon; spoon into 8- or 9-inch square baking dish.
- Crush the biscuits in a food processor, blitzing a few times until the mix is evenly crushed (there might be some larger pieces still).
- Add the butter and pulse a few times until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- Add the butter and biscuit mix to the sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl.
- Spread the crumble mixture evenly over the apples. Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until apples are tender.
- Serve topped with whipped cream or plain/ vanilla Greek yoghurt.
Verdict? This is a great crumble – quick and easy and satisfying on a chilly autumn night. Combining the biscuit crumbs with the oats and butter in the topping is a brilliant trick! And it almost tastes healthy enough that you could eat it for breakfast!
