Put your freshly-picked autumn apples to use by making this classic crumble. Easy enough to throw together on a whim, it contains all of the warm flavors of fall in every bite.


  • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened, plus more for pan

  • 3 pounds apples, such as Mutsu, peeled cored and chopped

  • 6 tablespoons granulated sugar

  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons unbleached all-purpose flour

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • Kosher salt

  • ½ cup packed brown sugar

  • Vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or Greek yogurt, for serving


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Brush a 2-quart baking dish with unsalted butter. In a large bowl, toss together apples, granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons flour, lemon juice, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; transfer to prepared dish.

  2. In a bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter with brown sugar until fluffy. Mix in 1 cup flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt until large pieces form. Scatter over filling. Bake until center is bubbling, about 1 hour; if top darkens, tent with foil. Let cool 20 minutes; serve with ice cream.
