Easy recipe for Apple it with ice cream and it's #comfortfood dessert!

I’ve been looking forward to sharing this recipe with you all for quite some time. My oldest daughter’s birthday was in January and instead of cake and ice cream she wanted an Apple Pie.

Sadly, I am very pie crust challenged, so I had suggested an Apple Crumble instead. She said as long as it’s served hot with ice cream she would love it.

When I posted it on instagram, I realized I had never shared the recipe on the blog. Shame on me. Hoarding this delicious crumble all for myself.

Then earlier this summer I shared this Blueberry Lime Crumble…and again realized I’ve yet shared my apple version.

Well friends. Today is the day. The wait is over. It’s here it’s here!!!

I hope you will all forgive me for waiting so long. But when I realized I would be partnering with Crunch Pak apples this year to bring you delicious apple goodies, I wanted to save this recipe to be the first!


And of course I had to make it with Crunch Pak apples. I wanted to show you guys (tell you?) how easy it is to bake with Crunch Pak. I know many of you may think of Crunch Pak as your kids’ snack….or a lunch box treat….but it can be so much more! Crunch Pak sells bigger bags of sliced apples, perfect for Apple Nachos, or baking today’s crumble! Because they are already sliced, I left the peel on for today’s treat. They bake so soft with the crunchy crumble that you won’t even notice.

Plus, duh, that makes this recipe even easier!
