▶️Prepare the crisp topping

In a medium bowl, combine the brown sugar, melted butter, all-purpose flour, and cinnamon until the mixture takes on a crumbly texture. Sprinkle it evenly over baked apples. Place in the Air Fryer and bake for 10-15 minutes or until topping gets light brown and is crispy. You can leave it longer in the Air Fryer if you want your crumble really crunchy. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream. Or you can cool completely before serving.

❓FAQs about the Cosmic Crisp Apple Crumble

Is the Cosmic Crisp Apple good for baking?

The Cosmic Apple is not too dry but it is not watery either. It is not particularly thick or thin. As a consequence, it is the ideal apple for baking as it is fully balanced. Let’s say that its juices blend perfectly with all dry ingredients used in baking. We also like the perfect balance between its tart and sweet flavors so that makes it an excellent apple for baking. Try it for yourself!

How can I store the Apple Crumble?

You have a couple of options for storing your Apple Crumble:
1. At room temperature: If you plan to consume it within 2 days, you can keep it at room temperature. Make sure to store it in an airtight container to maintain its freshness.
2. In the refrigerator: For a longer shelf life, refrigerate the Apple Crumble. By storing it in the refrigerator, it can last up to 5 days. Again, use an airtight container to preserve its flavor and texture.
3. Freezing option: If you want to enjoy the Apple Crumble later, freezing is a great choice. Transfer it to a freezer-safe container, and it can be stored in the freezer for up to three months. Consider doubling the recipe and freezing one portion for a delightful treat on a cold winter day!

Should I use light or dark brown sugar when making this Apple Crumble?

Light and dark brown sugar can both be used to make apple crisp, but there are some key differences between the two. Dark brown sugar contains more molasses than light or golden brown sugar, which gives it a richer, more robust flavor. If you prefer a bolder flavor, dark brown sugar is the way to go. However, if you want a more subtle sweetness, light or golden brown sugar will work just fine.
Here are some additional details about the differences between light and dark brown sugar:
Light brown sugar: Light brown sugar is made by mixing white sugar with a small amount of molasses. It has a light brown color and a slightly sweet, caramel-like flavor.
Dark brown sugar: Dark brown sugar is made by mixing white sugar with a larger amount of molasses. It has a darker brown color and a richer, more robust flavor.
