  • 8 cups Granny Smith or Macintosh apples not peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 3 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose einkorn flour 3.375 oz
  • 3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 12.25 oz jar caramel ice cream topping
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose einkorn flour 3.375 oz
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter softened


  • Place rack in the center of the oven then preheat to 400 degrees. Coat an 8" x 8" dish with cooking spray and set aside.
  • Core and thinly slice 8 cups of apples. Toss apple slices with granulated sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and salt until ingredients are evenly combined and form a smooth sauce that will coat the apples. NOTE: When working with fresh fruit, the amount of thickener you need depends on how ripe the fruit is. If you’re using super sweet, ripe fruit, increase the flour by 1 or 2 Tbsp.
  • Pour ½ of the apples into the prepared pan. Arrange apples evenly in the bottom of the dish then drizzle ¼ cup caramel sauce over the apples.
  • Add remaining apples, arrange them evenly, then drizzle an additional ¼ cup caramel sauce over the apples—reserve remaining caramel sauce to serve with the finished crumble.
  • Bake 20 minutes to give the apples a head start while you prepare the crumb topping.
  • In a small bowl, stir together brown sugar, flour and salt until combined, then add softened butter, blending until the butter has incorporated with the dry ingredients and a crumbly consistency forms—sometimes getting in there and pinching with your fingers is the best way to do this.
  • Once the dish has baked for 20 minutes, remove from the oven. Spread crumble mixture evenly over the apples then return to the oven for 20–25 minutes. The crumble will acquire a golden hue and the edges will bubble with caramel.
  • Remove the from the oven and let cool completely so filling can set before slicing. Serve with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream and the reserved caramel sauce. Enjoy!


Granny Smith apples should be readily available at the local supermarket, but Braeburn, Fuji and Macintosh apples are also fine substitutes!
