What’s your favorite tea party recipe? I could think of lots of favorites but what came to my mind when I thought of tea was hot tea…and hot tea reminds me of my Tuesday night small group because we almost always drink hot tea. And thinking of my small group brought to mind this recipe that I made for our snack this week.
It’s an amazing combination of textures and sweetness and there was not a crumble left! I should also let you know that there were only six members present. Needless to say, I’ll double the recipe next time. Served warm and topped with vanilla ice cream and chopped pecans, this is a wonderful accompaniment to any tea party!
Apple Crumble (printable recipe)
- 4 apples, any variety, peeled
- zest and juice of 1 lemon
- 2 Tb. granulated sugar
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- pinch of salt
- 2/3 cup flour
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
- 2/3 cup oats
- pinch of salt
- 1 stick of unsalted butter
heat oven to 350 degrees
for the filling:
Slice the apples into wedges or large slices, combine the lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, cinnamon and apple wedges into a small bowl and toss together.
for the crumble topping:
In an 8×8 baking dish, melt the butter in the microwave for about 10 to 15 seconds. THis will help to grease the baking dish as well as soften the butter. In another bowl, mix the flour, brown sugar, oats and salt together. Gently pour the butter into the flour mixture and incorporate until well-combined. Paula Dean says that the best kitchen tools God gave us are our fingers, they work really well here!!
Arrange the apple slices in the baking dish and top with the flour-oat mixture. Bake for roughly 45 minutes or until the apples are tender and the crumble topping is golden brown.
Serve with vanilla ice cream or other toppings such as chopped pecans, caramel sauce or extra cinnamon.
