Absolutely fantastic! I doubled the fruit (not the crumble) and added 1/4 c. oats to the mixture. It was fantastic. I made a 9x9 pan and ate half if it right away. Didn't need ice cream, just had a bit of whipped cream with it warm and it was PERFECT! I will double the crumble next time...it was nice and crunchy. I baked at 400 for about 50 min to get the fruit "cubes" a chance to soften. Thanks!
Since going applepicking (and pear-picking!), I've made the recipe 5 times in the last 2 weeks! :) I double the recipe which makes it loads more fruity and substantial. I add rolled oats , more than a pinch of ground cinn (maybe 1/4 tsp) and cook at 400 for 45 minutes. Every time I've made it, it's been eaten up and raved about!
We enjoyed this for dessert tonight with vanilla icecream and a dollop of cream and for the first time I did not have the DH say I prefer your apple pie and he did comment it was certainly better than the frozen commercial products. I would recommend using chilled butter especially if you make the crumble mix in a food processor (I used a mini one). I did not add the salt as I used low salted butter and used granny smith apples as we prefer their tarty taste. Thank you Sue L. Made for Recipe Swap #16 - May 2008.
