Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble is THE quintessential fall dessert! Simple to make and always a crowd pleaser, if you go apple picking a good apple crumble recipe is a must. We go heavy on the crumble because we like a good, thick crust topping our apple compote, but the crumble portion can easily be reduced by half if you prefer more apple and less crumble! Always serve this dessert warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
