Apple crumble

We had a nice Saturday. Ran some errands, made a chicken salad for lunch, prepared an apple crumble, and then went out to play in the snow for a while.

When we came back inside, cheeks red and fingers frozen, the crumble had cooled down enough to eat but was warm enough to provide the perfect contrast to a billowing cloud of vanilla cream.

Apple crumble
Serves 4
3 apples (I used a mixture of red delicious and honeycrunch)
1 tbsp sugar (I use homemade vanilla sugar)
2 tsp cinnamon
120 g flour
70 g butter
2 tbsp sugar (again, homemade vanilla sugar is highly recommended)

Peel and core the apples. Cut into four wedges, then into 2 mm slices. Toss with the cinnamon and sugar, in a baking dish.

Place the flour, butter and sugar in a bowl - for me, the bowl of my kitchen-aid - and pinch together until you have a nice crumbly texture. (Or just run your K-A for a minute or two.)

Sprinkle the dough on top of the apples, and bake at 200 degrees for about 20-25 minutes. Let it cool a little, and eat with vanilla cream.
