Cure Those Winter Blues With This Scrumptious Apple Crumble!

Will this winter ever end?! I don' t know. What I do know is that if I have to walk around with cold wet socks again, I'm gonna scream. Yesterday was not a good day. The weather was awful, my shoes were soaked with icy water, and I just wanted to cry... until I came home and made this mountain of deliciousness. 

Nothing comforts me quicker than a warm, gooey apple dessert. With all the yumminess of a pie, but half the labor, this crumble requires very little prep work. You don't even have to peel the apples if you don't want to. I have a friend who actually likes the texture of the skins. To each his own. But I digress, apple crumble is an American classic, one that (if done right) can melt away your troubles and warm your hypothermic toes in a matter of minutes.

Give this quick recipe a try next time you feel like kicking that puddle you accidentally stepped into, but you know you shouldn't because then your other foot will get wet too... so you just stand there indignant, staring at the slushy, icy water and wondering if there's any justice at all in this world. Not that I've ever done that... 

Neverending Winter Apple Crumble:

6-8 Apples (I used Granny Smiths)

1 cup sugar

2 tbsp flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/4 cup water

Topping:

1 cup rolled oats

1 cup flour

1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp baking soda

1/2 cup melted butter 

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9x13 baking dish. Peel (if you want) and slice apples. Toss with the sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Throw them into the baking dish. Pour water on top. 

In a medium bowl, stir all the topping ingredients until combined. Press onto the apples. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown and bubbly. Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Feel better!
