With Thanksgiving only days away, I thought I’d share a recipe I recently made for Friendsgiving that went over pretty well. I know Thanksgiving is all about traditional food, but its nice to switch things up every once in a while. I also feel like dessert is the perfect part of the meal to try something new. This crumble combines the sweetness of apples and blueberries with a nice little hint of citrus; a fun twist on all of those traditional apple desserts.
Apple Blueberry Crumble
6 apples (I used Honeycrisp)
6 oz blueberries
1 orange, zested
Juice of 1 orange
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 tsp salt
- Preheat the oven to 350F and grease a 9×13 baking dish.
- Make the filling: Core apples and cut them into small pieces. Add them to a large bowl along with blueberries, orange zest, orange juice, sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Add filling to baking dish.
- Make the topping: Combine flour, oats, sugar, and salt. Add melted butter and mix until the topping is nice and crumbly. Sprinkle evenly on top of the filling.
- Bake for 1 hour, or until the topping is golden brown.
- If you really want to step it up a notch, serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream.
