Simple Apple Crumble

Simple Apple Crumble


3-4 good baking apples

1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1 cup all-purpose flour
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature, cubed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, or more to taste
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 packed cup light brown sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Peel and core apples, then chop in roughly 1/3 to 1/2-inch chunks. Place apples in a glass pie plate.  Stir together sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle over apples.


2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, cinnamon and salt. Add the butter and rub it into the flour with your fingers, mix well with a pastry blender, or pulse the dry ingredients and butter in a food processor until the mixture resembles crumbs. Mix in the brown sugar until blended.
