Crumble is very similar to a crisp, but its soft streusel topping doesn’t contain oats. Instead, nuts are often used to give it an extra bite.
1. Toss apples with sugar, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg in a large bowl. Transfer to an 8 × 8-in. baking dish.
For Crumble Topping:
1. Position rack in centre of oven, then preheat to 350F.
2. Stir flour with brown sugar, pecans, butter, vanilla and salt in a medium bowl. Using your fingertips, rub the mixture until it’s crumbly and has a sandy texture. Sprinkle topping evenly over apple filling in prepared baking dish.
3. Bake until top is golden and juice is bubbly around edges, about 40 min. Let cool slightly. Serve warm with ice cream, vanilla pudding or whipped cream, if desired.
