Total Time 1 hour

Ingredients

For the Filling:

  • 8 cups peeled cored, and sliced apples
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purposeĀ flour

For the crumble topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 12 tablespoons cold unsalted butter diced

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, combine apples, lemon juice, vanilla extract, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and flour. Gently toss until apples are well coated. Let the apple mixture sit while you prepare the crumble topping.
  3. For the crumble topping: in a large bowl, combine the flour, oatmeal, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Stir together with a whisk. Mix in the butter with your fingers until the mixture comes together and you have big crumbles.
  4. Place the apple mixture in a 12 inch skillet. Sprinkle the crumble mixture evenly over the apples. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until the crumbly is browned and bubbling. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  5. Note-you can make the crumble in a large baking dish or individual ramekins. You can also make the crumble ahead of time-just store the unbaked crumble in the refrigerator and bake when ready! Store the crumble in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.
