Autumn Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble

I recently returned from a trip to the Philadelphia area. We went to visit my friends Carol and Larry who live in rural Bucks County,  but it was also an opportunity for me to go “home”.  I grew up in suburban Philadelphia, and although I left there 34 years ago,  it will always be home to me. There is a lot of truth in the saying “home is where the heart is”, and my heart still remains in Philadelphia.

It was the perfect time of year to head east.  The days were growing a little shorter, and the nights were becoming a bit crisper. As we drove the quaint country roads dotted with small farms, there were apples for sale everywhere. My friends said they never buy their fruit in a a grocery store, instead for most of the year, they go to these local farms and pick their own fruit.

On one particularly cool evening I baked my Autumn Apple Crumble with some of the crisp local apples we had just purchased that day. It was the perfect dessert to share with good friends over a cup of coffee. For me, this crumble is a little bit oatmeal cookie, and a little bit apple pie. Two things I can never get enough of.

  1. What a beautiful area! I’m always looking for a good apple crisp recipe, so am eager to try this one. Thanks for sharing it, Sheryl! 🙂

  2. Sheryl, love this receipe and I’m going to try it soon. I’ve been making a lot of apple sauce lately and will try yours next time.
    Love your comments that go along with your baking.

  3. Ahhh, I miss Bucks county in the fall. Your crumble looks divine. I’ve been teaching my students the difference between a crumble, crisp, pandowdy, pie, and cobblers. There’s another one in there, but the name escapes me.

  4. Any dessert that is described as “a little bit oatmeal cookie, and a little bit apple pie” is definitely a winner for me. Can’t wait to try the recipe!

  5. Such restorative powers that Apple Crumble has indeed. apples too remind me of home, as my parents still have three apple tress to this day. Love the delicious snap of those bowls and the warmth and goodness of that apple filling. I could almost wish it were fall again, if I weren’t heading into Summer myself 😉

  6. Thanks Alice for your always thoughtful comments! It’s so funny to think you are heading into summer. We’ve had 3 1/2 months of 90+ degree weather every day and we’re finally coming out of it. Time for autumn comfort food!

  7. You are the absolute best. This week someone gave us some orchard-fresh apples but, sadly, they’ve already started going a bit soft. I was planning to do some mad apple baking this weekend, and here you are with this wonderful apple crumble! Thank you!

  8. Sheryl, the apt description, “a little bit oatmeal cookie, and a little bit apple pie…” means just one thing: I want a LOT of this crumble! The chart and rural photos are fantastic. Thanks for sharing the recipe and a taste of the Philly countryside.

  9. O M G – I loved the photo of the barn and was so pleased to see you live in Bucks County! My family lived in Villanova while our twin sons were growing up – and one son still lives in the area – in Waune. Bucks County is so very lovely. I’m going to have to take a drive there, perhaps at Thanksgiving time, because I’ll be in the area then. I was so please to see that you liked my recent post ‘Farmhouse Bread’ and that you’ve begun following my blog!! You’re blog is amazing – I became a follower & love “Mama’s Gotta Bake’ – including the title. You sound a lot like me, sometimes I’m ‘messing around in my kitchen’ during the wee hours of the morning. My neighbors see the lights and tell me, the next day, how crazy I am.

    1. Hi Cecile! Thanks so much for following. I don’t live in Bucks County, but I was visiting my best friend who lives there and I’m so taken with the beauty of the area and all it’s history. I’m looking forward to seeing what your next post will be about!

      1. Yup, I thought it might be that I ‘presumed’ you lived in Bucks County.. I’m glad find it as lovely there as I do ! Your photos are stunning!! I’m thinking of posting several ‘Thanksgiving Themed’ recipes soon but I often have one idea in my head… then I end up making/posting something totally different. ; o )

  10. Thank you for visiting my blog–I am so glad it led me to check out your blog. This apple recipe looks delicious! I look forward to reading more of your posts!
