Apple Crumble

Preheat oven to 375

Fill your 3 quart baking dish 3/4 full of lovely apples, peeled and cut. Sprinkle with a bit of cinnamon, ground ginger and nutmeg. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of granola over the fruit.

2 cups of Lucy’s granola with dried fruit removed (optional). (If you remove the dried fruit, you can soak it in a 1/2 cup of booze and add to the apples – I did it with some brandy and it was delicious.)

3/4 cups of all-purpose flour (you can use rice flour if gluten free, but not as good)

3/4 cups of packed light brown sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter softened slightly and cut into 1/2″ pieces

1 cup toasted hazelnuts or pecans or walnuts (optional)

Make the topping:
Stir together 1/2 cup granola, flour, brown sugar and salt in a medium bowl. Blend in butter with fingertips until mixture forms small clumps. Crumble topping evenly over the fruit filling.

Bake 375 degrees until fruit is bubbling and topping is golden – 40-50 minutes. Very easy and delicious.

Instead of apples, try using other fruits.
