On Saturday night I had an impromptu dinner party. I whipped up some Cocoa Linguini with Marscapone and Lemon Zest (which was just okay…) then served an amazing apple crumble for dessert. I had a bag full of organic gala apples that were just begging to be used and were on the verge of going bad so I peeled them, chopped them up, coated them in sugar, and served them to my friends. I mean truly, is there any other way to eat an apple?
Homemade Apple Crumble
(adapted from Epicurious)
– 4 1/2 lbs. organic gala apples (peeled, cored, and sliced)
-2 1/2 cups rolled oats
-1 1/2 cups packed light brown sugar
-1 cup all purpose flour
-1 cup unsalted butter cubed
-juice from 1 1/2 lemons
-1 tbsp. cinnamon
make the magic happen:
1) Preheat your oven to 375. Mix oats, 1 cup of sugar, and flour in a bowl. Add your butter and mix the ingredients together with your fingers (or a pastry cutter) until it comes together in a crumbly/grainy mixture.
2) Coat a 10x14in. (or 9x13in.) baking dish with cooking oil. Mix your apples with the remaining sugar, lemon juice, and cinnamon then pour into the prepared dish.
3) Top your apples with your oatmeal mixture then cook for 45-55 min. The oatmeal should be a golden-brown color and your apples will be bubbly and fragrant. Top it with some ice cream if you’d like and enjoy!!
It’s starting to feel like Fall, ya’ll!
