Apple Crunch a la Mode Recipe

  • 6 tart apples, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish.
  2. Scatter sliced apples in the prepared baking dish. Whisk together the white sugar, cold water, cornstarch, and vanilla extract in a small saucepan. Cook over medium heat until syrup is clear, and all sugar had dissolved, about 5 minutes. Pour hot syrup over the fruit.
  3. Stir together the flour, brown sugar, oats, melted butter, walnuts, and cinnamon until crumbly. Scatter crumble over fruit mixture.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until the top is brown and the crunch is bubbly, about 1 hour.
