8 servings (serving size: about 1/2 cup crumble and 1/2 cup ice cream)

Pears would also be nice in this homey dessert. Prepare the crumble topping (including cutting in the butter), and freeze up to two months. Sprinkle it--still frozen--over the apple mixture just before you put it in the oven.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

To prepare filling, combine the first 3 ingredients, tossing well. Place apple mixture in an 11 x 7-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Step 3

To prepare topping, lightly spoon the flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Combine flour and the next 5 ingredients (through nutmeg), stirring with a whisk. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle butter mixture evenly over apple mixture. Bake at 350° for 30 minutes or until filling is bubbly and topping is golden. Serve with vanilla light ice cream.
