Tips from t
he Betty Crocker Kitchens
Serve this Best Apple Crumble with a scoop of ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.
Use fresh peaches for the apples for a juicy peach crumble.
Taste apples for sweetness before adding brown sugar and adjust the amount of sugar to your preference.
Choose apples that are firm enough to hold their shape. Braeburn, Fuji or Granny Smith are all excellent choices.
Get creative by adding other dried spices, candied ginger or chewy dried fruits to add more layers of flavor and texture.
