Apple Crumble

Apple Crumble
Christopher Mohs


I threw this together last minute when heading off for Shabbat dinner with my roommates family.  That was quite the treat and an incredibly fun experience. Inspired by my hero Ina Garten’s Plum Crumble, I’m giving this a little added pizzaz as Ina would say – we’re turning up the volume on a classic.


1 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
3/4 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup toffee chips
1/4 cup walnuts chopped
1/2 lb. Cold butter cubed

3 lbs cubed washington or fiji apples (pick your favorite)
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup flour
1 cup caramel liqueur (varies depending of moisture content of apples)


Mix all topping ingredients in a stand mixer till mixture starts to come together (about the size of small peas). Mix together filling ingredients and spread out in a ceramic baking dish.  Spread crumble topping over.  Bake 40 to 45 minutes at 375 degrees.

Enjoy this with some vanilla ice cream and your favorite guests.
