Notes

  • You can use any type of apple that you preferred, except for the tart ones like Granny Smith.
  • Any 8-inch pie dish or tart pan can also be used for this recipe.
  • If you like cardamom, try adding a bit of it.
  • Whether you are baking or reheating the crumble, make sure you place it on the lower level of your oven to avoid burning the almonds on top.
  • If you don't have any breadcrumbs on hand, try making it at home my other post, How-to-Make Breadcrumbs.
