Apple crumble is a good way to use the old apples in your fridge.  Best part is, it is extremely easy to make.   This is my husband's favourite desert.  Best served with ice cream of course.

2.5 cups peeled and cut apples
2 - 3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons unsalted butter (room temperature)
2 tablespoons of brown sugar
4 tablespoons of oat meal
2 tablespoons of flour (whole wheat flour is best)
  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Peel and cut apples and put in a pan with 2 tablespoons of water
  • Add sugar.  If you are using sweet apples, use 2 tablespoons but if they are more sour, use 3 tablespoons of sugar
  • Add cinnamon
  • Cook apples for 5 minutes at medium temperature (until soft)
  • Transfer apples to an oven proof dish.  This recipe is for 4 servings so I used a mid sized pyrex bowl
  • Mix all of the topping ingredients with your hands or a fork.  These are your "crumbs"
  • Cover the apples with the crumbs
  • Bake for 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown
  • Enjoy them warm with ice cream
