Fall is officially here, which means it's apple season!  And at our house, that means we have a fridge full of half-eaten apples.  Our boys love to start apples, but they just can't seem to finish one.  My solution - make apple crumble!  It's super easy and super delicious, which is perfect for a busy afternoon when I want something sweet for dessert.  And the kids love to help.  My older son likes to measure the sugar and flour for me, and my younger son just likes to beg for apple slices while we cook.  Here's the recipe:

Apple Crumble

6 cups apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
1/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp flour (all-purpose or rice flour)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

3/4 cup flour (all-purpose or rice flour)
1/3 cup brown sugar (or white sugar)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
dash nutmeg
6 tbsp butter, softened

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  In large bowl, toss apples, sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Let stand 10 minutes.  In medium bowl combine flour, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Cut in butter with pie-crust mincer or strong fork.  Pour apples into 9" pie dish.  Spoon topping evenly over apples.  Bake for 40-50 minutes, checking frequently after 30 minutes.  If top begins to brown before apples are cooked, cover dish with tin foil for remaining time to prevent burning.
