Apple Crumble

It wouldn’t be fall without quintessential flavours like pumpkin spice and of course, everything apple! After going apple picking and coming home with pounds of these delicious  fruits I decided to make use of them in any way I could- eating my fare share straight from the tree, creating a rustic crumble, oh and experimenting with apple cinnamon french toast ( which was quite mind blowing in case you were wondering).  I think I’ve had my quota for the month!

Apples take on a whole new life when you cook them down with a little bit of cinnamon and sugar- they get soft, sweet and almost have a melt in your mouth texture, still with just enough bite. The crumble mixture on top adds just enough crunch to make for one… or more amazing bite.
