Apple Pie Crumble


Ingredients for crumble:
1 cup oats
1 cup flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
½ cup unsalted butter

½ tablespoon lemon juice
½ teaspoon lemon rind
⅓ cup white sugar
3 tbsp flour
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ tsp nutmeg
1 tsp vanilla

Ingredients for crust:
Pie crust of your choice (i used shortcrust pastry)

Method :

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

Step 1 – preparing the filling –

Peel, core and chop the apples into a bowl.
Mix with the sugar, lemon (juice and rind), cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla and flour and set aside for 20 minutes to let the flavours soak up.

Step 2 – preparing the crumble –

Combine all the dry (crumble) ingredients into a bowl and mix together.
Using cold fingers and cold cubed butter, mix the butter into the dry ingredients using your fingertips till it resembles a breadcrumb crumble consistency. (be careful not to overmix or let the butter get too soft).
Step 3 – preparing the crust –

Using either homemade or store bought pie crust grease and line a baking pie dish with the pastry.

Step 4 – creating the apple pie crumble –

Layer the apple mixture onto of the pie crust making sure to pour any leftover excess juice on top of the apples (it all adds to the flavour)

Bake for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
Leave to cool for 20 minutes after baking before removing from the pie dish
Serve with your favorite flavor of ice cream or custard and enjoy.
