I’m not much of a baker, so by the time I get to dessert I just want the easiest thing possible: something that doesn’t require any fancy machines, that I can throw into a bowl and call it a day. I love warm fruit at the end of a heavy meal, so this is my easiest go-to dessert!
Braised Apples with Crumble and Ice Cream
- Cooking and Prep: 1.5 h
- Serves: 6
Prepare the Braised Apples
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Place apples in a glass baking dish and pour melted butter over.
Sprinkle with sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg, then drizzle with lemon and apple juice.
Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10-15 minutes or until apples are golden brown.
Prepare the Crumble
Mix flour, sugar and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Add butter and use your fingers to combine into a crumble texture. Add pecans and mix.
Spread on a baking sheet lined with Gefen Parchment Paper and bake for 15 to 20 minutes until dry and cooked through. Let cool.
The crumble can be made a day in advance. Cover and store at room temperature.
Slice warm apples in half. Top with crumble and a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
