I love apples and honeycrisp apples are among my favorites. I found myself with 3 apples that hadn’t been eaten (and likely wouldn’t see many more days), so I decided to make a small apple crumble.
I happened to have everything on hand. I stuck with typical apple crisp/crumble/pie flavors: apples, sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon.
I started by peeling and slicing my apples – turns out that 3 apples was the perfect size for the small (maybe 5×5) baking dish I had, it must have been meant to be!
After slicing the apples, I added them to a bowl where mixed up the filling ingredients.
I buttered my super cute, small baking dish – then added my apples to it. Again, a perfect fit!
Then I made the topping. This would have worked so much better with a pastry cutter, but I don’t have one – so I just combined it all with my hands. Room temperature butter helps!
Finally, I added the topping to the dish and baked it in a 400 degree oven, for 45 minutes (my oven takes a little longer, and runs a little cooler – so, feel free to adjust that based on your oven!).
I promise you, not much smells as good as apples baking – my house smelled just like fall, while this was in the oven. It turned out great – I do wish that I had some vanilla ice cream to have with it, but it is delicious on it’s own!
