  • Scatter sliced apples in the prepared baking dish. Whisk together the white sugar, cold water, cornstarch, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until syrup is clear, and all sugar had dissolved, about 5 minutes. Pour hot syrup over the fruit.

  • Stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, melted butter, walnuts, and cinnamon until crumbly. Scatter crumble over fruit mixture.

  • Bake in preheated oven until the top is brown and the crunch is bubbly, about 1 hour.

Cook's Note

Quick cooking rolled oats can be used in place of the old-fashioned oats.

Try Granny Smith or Jonathan apples in this dish. They're nice and tart.

My whole family went nuts over this desert. I used Pinova apples freshly picked from the orchard and added a little cinn to the actual syrup while it was cooking. The crumbles turned out just right and I will definitely use this recipe for all time! Read More

The Crunch Topping was really good although it could have used more cinnamon. I thought about adding more but didn't and wish I had. It said to slice the apples thin so I did and they turned out like applesauce. I baked it for the exact amount of time that recipe indicated. I probably will make this again but will add quite a bit more cinnamon to the crunch and also to the syrup. Read More
