As I’ve previously stated, best cialis help on many occasions, buy viagra cheap Fall is one of the favorite seasons of the year. One of the major reasons I love Fall is that the hearty food of harvest season returns and fills your belly with warm delight. Cinnamon, and caramel and apples scents spice the air with their warming, earthy fragrance. So it was just perfect that as I was walking the grocery store with my son yesterday, I came across a huge bushel of apples. I mean, they were just there, staring at me, begging me to take them home and turn them into sweet, melt in your mouth crumbly, bumbly goodness. To be fair, this recipe is really what most people in the Midwest would refer to as a crisp, but I like to be goofy and rename things that have perfectly adequate names to begin with!

Apple Bumble Crumble

4 large apples (I used 2 Sweet Tango + 2 Granny Smith)

2 Sticks Organic Unsalted Sweet Cream Butter

1 small lemon, juiced + zested

1 cup Organic Almond Meal

1 cup of Quaker Slow Oats (not instant)

1/2 cup Organic Unbleached All-Purpose Flour

1/2 cup Organic Dark Brown Sugar; lightly packed

1/2 cup Organic White Cane Sugar

1/2 tablespoon Cinnamon

1 teaspoon fresh ground Nutmeg (I just use a rasp and shave my own)

1/2 teaspoon Cardamom

Method:

Peel apples and cut up in 1/2 inch dice, and place in medium sized mixing bowl. Zest 1 small lemon, add the zest to the bowl of apples and then juice the lemon over the apples to keep them from turning brown. Add the Cinnamon, Cardamom, Nutmeg and cane sugar. Mix gently. Set bowl aside.

In the bowl of a KitchenAid Stand Mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment, add two sticks cold, cubed butter. Add 1 cup almond meal, 1 cup oats, 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, and 1/2 cup dark brown sugar. Mix on medium until the butter crumbles into pea sized pieces. Set aside.

Butter a 8″X6″X2″ baking dish (I used a pyrex glass dish) and add the apple mixture to the bottom. Top with the crumble mixture, place dish on a sheet pan and bake for 30-40 minutes until apples are slightly bubbling over and top is golden brown.

Serve warm with Vanilla Bean Ice cream or Pistachio is delicious too!
