Nothing like a warm apple crumble to hit that sweet spot!! I don’t know about you, but I love any and all warm apple desserts! I remember my aunt used to make a delicious apple pie! It was pretty labor intensive though, so I never tried my hand at it. So when I discovered apple crumble, I was excited to have an easy alternative to apple pie. I’ve been making this apple crumble for years and every time I make it, it’s always packed with deliciousness!!

Apple crumble.

My middle child, Phillip, absolutely loves it! He’s loved it since the first time he tried it back when he was in Kindergarten! He even had me make a batch for his class when he was in first grade and they were studying Johnny Appleseed! Phillip was so proud when he came home because all his little classmates had loved his mommy’s dessert!

Time flies. He just turned 14 and is no longer a little boy, but he still loves my apple crumble as much as he did back then! That makes me happy 🙂

This recipe is simple! The hardest part is peeling and cutting the apples!? When served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top, it will make you want to eat the whole thing! But don’t! Make sure you share with your family! They will definitely appreciate it!
