Y’all know I love apple pie, but I might love this Apple Crisp with Walnut Crumble even more. While a good homemade pie crust is delicious, this sweet buttery topping with toasted walnuts and old-fashioned oats is divine.
This Apple Crisp with Walnut Crumble is easier to make than pie, too. (No crust required!) The simple crumble topping is made with your fingers, which for me is like a meditation. With all our modern conveniences, we forget how good it is to feel the texture of life, don’t we? Take a few minutes to enjoy the feeling of cool, silky flour against your hands, then sticky brown sugar and squishy butter. Hard, chunky walnuts. Rugged oats. Let the texture of your ingredients soak in for a minute.
Then sprinkle that delicious mixture over your lovely dish of apples, pop it in the oven, and savor the flavors of fall. For a gluten-free version, simply sub in your favorite GF flour blend, cup for cup.
