Here in Florida, it's mid-September and we're still flirting with the 100 degree mark. Summer in Florida is basically 7 months of the year. We start getting fall weather around late October, and then by late March, it's crazy hot again. Needless to say, I am SO sick of this heat. Opening your front door feels like walking right into a sauna- hot and sticky.
So what's a girl to do? Well, this particular girl tried to coax glorious fall into coming a little early by making a very autumnal apple crumble. I'm still holding out hope that we'll get some nice dips in temperature soon. Fingers crossed!
Anywho, whether you're trying to conjure up some come hither autumn voodoo, or enjoying the turning of the leaves, I think you'll enjoy this recipe, lovingly called my "Sick of Summer Apple Crumble."
Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and gather and wash your apples. There are 6 here, but I only used 5. I used different kinds of apples because that's what I had on hand, but you can use any good baking apple. I think I used one Gala, one Fuji, one Golden Delicious, and two Granny Smiths.
Of course, I forgot to take pictures when I was making the crust mixture, but it's pretty simple- dump all the crust ingredients into a bowl, and smush it around until it resembles... well, something doughy. Then, just pinch off pieces of dough and plop them right on top of the apple mixture.
I added a little fresh whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon and devoured. And then repeated. About three times.
What's your favorite cold weather treat?
