Fruit crisps and crumbles are among my favourite desserts and this one from Dorie Greenspan's book Baking Chez Moi was a winner.
It was easier than most, relying on store-bought cookies for the crumble topping. Unfortunately, I couldn't find the recommended brands in my local grocery stores and wasn't sure what a good substitute might be so I made Dorie's Speculoos from the same book (page 320).
This was a tasty dessert with some cranberries
and a squeeze of lemon juice added to the apples and a topping of homemade maple syrup ice cream (Jackie's Maple Syrup Ice Cream from The Dahlia Bakery Cookbook by Tom Douglas).
The cookie crumble remained crunchy after baking and its spice flavour complemented the apples nicely.....very good for the small amount of effort that went into it, not counting baking the cookies ;)!
This was one of the November selections for Tuesdays with Dorie. Visit here to see what the others baked this week.
