Just thinking about this deliciousness has me wanting to take a break and whip-up Tom’s Great-Grandma McLaughlin’s Apple Crumble. In today’s pictures, I’m wearing a party dress by Alice and Olivia, so I thought including this recipe was perfect. That way if you need to bring a dessert to an event you’re attending, you’ve got ideas for both your dress and your recipe.
We used Tom’s great-grandma’s handwritten recipe to create our crumble. I’m sure she’s looking down on us smiling at the fun we had making and devouring it:) Here’s how you can make this beyond-scrumptious dessert…
Shopping List: 1) apples, 2) white sugar, 3) butter, 4) almond flour, 5) “minute” oatmeal, 6) brown sugar, 7) baking soda, 9) salt
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Core and slice 4 cups of apples (we used 6 small Granny Smiths). Stir them together with ½ cup white sugar, 1 tbs melted butter, and 1 tbs flour until evenly coated. Place them in a pie-plate or pan. [Tip: Tom uses a Kyocera Knife for slicing and coring. It’s ultra-sharp, and reasonably priced.]
Blend together 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup butter, 1/8 cup baking soda, and 1/2 tsp salt. [We used a KitchenAid to speed-up the process. The preparation time was only 15 minutes.]
Pour the crumble over the apples and bake for 40 minutes. Let cool, and enjoy.
If you can stop at only one serving, then you have some crazy kind of willpower!
