As you may know I love a crumble anything. I have a wonderful peach crumble recipe that I love, and I thought to myself "why don't I have an apple crumble recipe?" So of course I had to come up with a recipe for the fall season and this recipe doesn't disappoint. It has a wonderful brown sugar crumble with butter pecans and soft cinnamon apples. I love it warm with a little ice cream! It gives me all the warm fall vibes, and I can't stop making it. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!

  • 1 c Sugar
  • 1/4 c Corn Starch
  • 1/2 t Cinnamon
  • Pinch of Salt
  • 4 T Unsalted Butter Melted
  • 1/2 T Vanilla Extract
  • 2 t Lemon Juice

Apple Filling
Pre heat your oven to 400 degrees.
Mix together the sugar, corn starch, cinnamon and salt in a bowl and set it aside.
Peel and slice your apples 1/2 inch thick and add them to a bowl.
Pour the melted butter, vanilla, and lemon juice on your apples and toss them around to get all the apples coated.
Pour the cinnamon sugar mixture on top of the apples and mix until all of the apples are coated. Then transfer the apples to a baking dish. I used a pie dish.
In a sauce pan melt 1T of butter on a medium heat.
Add the pecans to the melted butter and cook them until they are fragrant.
Take the pecans off the heat and put them in a bowl to cool down.
Mash together the sugar, butter, brown sugar, flour, and cooled pecans until you don't see anymore flour.
Squeeze a handful of crumble in your hand to make a brick.
Then crumble the brick on top of the apples. This will give you big and small crumbles.
Repeat this until all the crumble is on the apples.
Bake the apple crumble in a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.
Let it cool for 30 minutes and then enjoy!
