Apple crumble

Imagine how your house smells when you make an apple pie or a vrumble. All these comforting smells of cinnamon, apple and caramelized sugar. Brings me back to my childhood and how could I NOT do this for my little one. She as always is my little helper. Mixing, measuring and making a hot mess, but who cares! She loved how it smelled how messy it was ofcourse and just the mixing part was a fave. and once I told her we eat this with Ice cream she had a mountain of Ice cream and 2 bites of crumble but HEY it was fun just making it and saved more for me 😍

I have always prefered an apple crumple over and apple pie. You get all the bits and pieces of that crunchy crumble together with the soft cinnamon apples. I always make some extra crumble cause there can never be enough 😍. In Sweden we eat our crumble or apple pie with a vanilla custard but this time around I went with vanilla ice cream, I love to let it melt a little bit before I dig in 😍
