Apple Crumble

I have a confession to make. I’ve never really been an apple pie lover! Last year was the first year that I made an apple pie for Thanksgiving using the recipe from the Celebrations cookbook by Danielle Walker and it was SO GOOD. It’s just something about a homemade dessert made with good quality ingredients that makes it taste so yummy! Although I loved the pie, making the pie crust was far from my favorite thing to do. It was kind of a pain, so I wanted to come up with something much easier! This is why I decided to come up with a beyond easy apple crumble recipe made with a few ingredients because I wanted something easy to put together for Thanksgiving!

I left the apples unpeeled, but if you’re not a fan or can’t have apple skins feel free to peel the apples. What I love about this pie is that it’s not overpoweringly sweet! It has a perfect amount of sweetness with lots of warming cinnamon flavor. I add a small amount of maple syrup to the filling, but you can totally leave the maple syrup out if you’d prefer. If you want to make this dessert over the top, I bet it’d be delicious topped with a generous scoop of your favorite vanilla ice cream or coconut whipped cream! If you’re still looking for a super simple dessert to put together for Thanksgiving, give this recipe a try!
