The vanilla sugar and orange juice give this Apple Crumble an extra special taste. This is one of my all time favorite recipes! This dessert is especially delicious when served in the Sukkah during the holiday of Succoth.
8 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, cut into 8 slices
1/4 cup of orange juice
1 small packet of vanilla sugar
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius).
2. Spray a shallow baking pan with cooking spray.
3. Place the apples in one layer at the bottom of the baking pan, making sure to cover the whole pan.
4. Sprinkle the vanilla sugar, orange juice and cinnamon over the apples in that order.
5. Mix together all the crumble ingredients with a wooden spoon. A bit more flour and oats can be added if you prefer a more crumbly topping.
6. Cover the apples with the crumble and press down lightly with your hand.
7. Cook the crumble in the oven for about 45 minutes. Check that the dish is ready by inserting a tooth pick in the middle. If the apples are still hard then continue cooking 5 minutes at a time until the apples are soft.
SERVING SUGGESTION: This Apple Crumble is great by itself, but you can garnish it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an extra special touch. Remember the dessert will be dairy, rather than parve, if it is made with butter and/or served with dairy ice cream or whipped cream.
