My sister-in-law moved from London to America a few months ago, and she brought some great English recipes with her.  One of my favorites is Sophie’s Apple Crumble.




  • 8 ounces of flour
  • Four ounces of unsalted butter (cold)
  • 5 ounces of sugar, separated into 3 ounces and 2 ounces
  • Two 1/2 teaspoons of cinnamon
  • 1 pound of green cooking apples, thinly sliced into crescents and skin removed


  • Slice butter into flour, 3 ounces sugar, and cinnamon and mix first three ingredients until crumbly.
  • Bring large pot of water to boil, place apple slices in, and add 2 ounces of sugar.
  • Cook apples at boil for 5 – 10 minutes or until soft but still firm.
  • Drain apples and spread into bottom of greased casserole dish.  Sprinkle another dash of cinnamon on top.
  • Pack apples down and sprinkle on the crumbles.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 25 – 30 minutes or until brown.
  • Serve with vanilla ice cream!
