Cuisine: American

Prep time: 25 mins
Cook time: 50 mins
Total time: 1 hour 15 mins
Crumble Topping:
  • 1/2 Cup flour
  • 1/4 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 Cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 dash salt
  • 5 Tablespoons room temperature butter; in small pieces
  • 1/2 Cup pecan pieces
  • 6 large Granny Smith apples; peeled, cored, and thinly sliced (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • 1/3 Cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 egg white; whisked until frothy
  • vanilla ice cream; for serving
  1. Combine flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in bowl of food processor. Add butter and pecans. Pulse until dough clumps together unevenly, 8 to 10 pulses. Transfer to plate and refrigerate while preparing apples.
  2. Put apples in large bowl. Combine sugar and cinnamon. Add to apples and toss until uniformly coated. Transfer to 4-cup-capacity ceramic, glass or terra cotta pie plate, tucking slices together and mounding in center (this bulk will cook down). You may also use individual crocks.
  3. Spoon on Crumble Topping, spreading over surface evenly; gently pat into place. Dip brush in egg white and dab onto Crumble, repeating as needed; it's OK if entire surface is not dabbed.
  4. Place plate or crocks on baking sheet to catch any drips. Bake in lower part of oven at 375 degrees until well-browned and bubbly, about 50 minutes. Test tenderness by piercing apples with toothpick or tip of paring knife; apples should be tender but not soft.
  5. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream. (Can be baked in advance, completely cooled, covered in foil and refrigerated for 2 days, or frozen up to 1 month, wrapped airtight after frozen solid. Let come to room temperature, unwrapped, before reheating. To reheat, bake uncovered in 325-degree oven for 20 minutes.)
