Recipe: Southern Apple Crumble

This recipe for Southern Apple Crumble is a quick and easy… shortcut…. Yes… I said that … it’s a shortcut version… and every bit as good as any other crumble recipe….

It goes together quickly … and all you have to do is wait until it comes out of the oven.. that’s the hard part… the waiting… as the aroma wafts through the house…. making the house smell oh so good… a perfect fall dessert.

This recipe is from the folks at Betty Crocker… and a total winner! …


An easy way to cut the butter into small pieces…. cut the butter down the middle (the long way)… turn it one side over… cut again down the middle.. then slice into ¼ inch slices… resulting in 4 cubes per slice.

Be careful when serving this to guests… be sure no one has a food allergy to nuts or a health reason not to eat them. You can omit the nuts and simply bake it for 55-60 minutes.

This makes 9 servings.

Enjoy this dessert warm with vanilla ice cream or homemade Chantilly Cream… yummmm!
