Yield 10 servings
Turbinado sugar is typically sprinkled on bakery cookies. We've incorporated it into the crumble's topping, where its course crystals provide a satisfying crunch.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried tart cherries
  • 1/3 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 1 pound Braeburn apples, peeled, cored, quartered, and cut crosswise into 1/2-inch-thick slices (about 2 1/4 cups)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 375°.

  2. Combine first 6 ingredients in a large bowl, tossing well to coat. Spoon mixture into an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

  3. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Place flour, cinnamon, salt, and mace, if desired, in a food processor; pulse 5 times or until well combined. Add butter, and pulse 20 times or until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the oats and sugar; pulse 5 times or until well combined.

  4. Sprinkle oat mixture over pear mixture. Bake at 375° for 1 hour or until topping is golden and filling is bubbly. Cool on a wire rack 10 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
