Apple Crunch

I'm having my very favorite Apple Crunch today, which to me is even better than an apple pie!  I have plenty to share if you'd like to join me!  Would you like whipped cream or ice cream on top of yours??

Even though I use a teacup every morning, in the afternoons, mugs are my choice.  This one is made by Tag, and it's perfect for Fall.

This owl is so cute, and sits on my mantle.  There's a string of battery operated lights inside of him for some nighttime glow.  One of my friends had her son build her an owl box and she gets an owl family every Springtime. 

My yummy apple crunch is atop my pie drip shield that my dear Mom gave me years ago.


My Marine grandson gets to return to the USA during the first week of October!!  Isn't that great news? His buddy that had half his face blown off has had eight surgeries so far.  According to his mom, "they are slowly putting him back together".  All the injured are at Walter Reed Medical Center.

Apple Crunch

Apple Crunch

This is like an apple pie but without the bottom crust!


  • 4 large apples, peeled (I used my apple/peeler/corer/slicer)
  • 1 t. cinnamon
  • some freshly grated nutmeg, to taste
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • Topping
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 6 T. melted butter


  1. For Topping: Mix flour and brown sugar together and add the melted butter. Stir together and set aside for 5 minutes, then break apart with fingertips.
  2. Lightly butter inside of 9-inch pie plate. Place sliced apples in dish. Sprinkle cinnamon, nutmeg and sugar over apples. Pour the water evenly over this.  Sprinkle the topping on top of the apples.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour;  start checking at around 45 minutes, checking for the tenderness of the apples and for the topping to be golden brown.

Thank you for your visit!  xo

Love Your Creativity Link Party


  1. That apple crunch looks so yummy! Glad your grandson can come home for a visit.

  2. Your apple crunch looks delicious Kitty! I know you and Molly will be glad when you see and hug Connor again. Thoughts and prayers for his friend going through his surgeries and family. Hope you're enjoying some more fall-like temperatures. ♥

  3. Your apple crunch sounds great Kitty, I'd even have it for breakfast:@) Love the pie shield too, that's a fantastic idea!

  4. Well, I would love your apple pie crunch with either ice cream or whipped cream whichever you have the most of. But alas, Mr. P. would not like this because the main reason he eats apple pie is for the crust! Don't you just love his little idiosyncrasies? ;) I love your little owl and little lights - anywhere!
    How wonderful Connor gets to come back home - is it leave or will he be stationed again here? Wow, 8 surgeries in less than a month - that's so traumatic, but honestly, I didn't even realize his friend survived. I'll pray for Connor's friend and Connor's mental health. I know Marines are some of the toughest, but we all have feelings.

  5. I would love to have apple pie crunch with you, ice cream please. It would be amazing to sit with you at this pretty table with the owl and your fall mugs. I would tell you how happy I am your Connor is returning to the US and how I pray his friend will soon have his surgeries completed. God Bless them all..........

  6. Yumminess!

    So glad that Connor will be home soon. Praying his friend will recover well. I would imagine many surgeries over the years. Those doctors are miracle workers.

  7. Your apple crunch looks so delicious! I'll be praying for Connor and his friend. Oh my, eight surgeries. His family are in my prayers, too.

  8. War.😔 The roll it takes on our young.🙁 I wish your grandson’s pal and those who will care for him the absolute best going forward. Such a tragic turn.

    Apple crunch sounds delicious! Like the apple harvest and crunch of fallen leaves in this season!!!

  9. That apple crunch looks and sounds just delicious for fall. It's such good news about your grandson but sorry to hear about his buddy and the rest of them.

  10. I'll have a sliver of that delicious looking apple crunch with whipped cream, please. Yum! I'm glad that Connor is returning the USA soon. I hadn't heard about his friend who suffered such terrible injuries, but I will pray for him, and for his medical needs.

  11. My thanks and admiration for your grandson who is a Marine. My nephew was a Marine also. Well, I guess they are Marines forever, once a Marine always a Marine. So sad about his fellow Marine's terrible injuries. Your apple crunch looks so good!

  12. seems super easy and looks delicious! I just pinned it!

  13. Your apple crunch looks mouthwatering!Sending prayers to your Grandson and his friends.

    Will continue to remember your grandson and the other Marines in my prayers.

  15. Oh your apple crunch sounds fabulous! I'm drooling thinking about it. Great news about Connor...continued prayers cover him and our troops who sacrifice so much. XO

  16. YUMMMMMM!!! I haven't made apple crisp (or crunch) in a long time. Now I feel like running to the store for more apples. Mmmmmmmmm I'd love to have a bowl of that right now!

    Sending up prayers for your son's friend. I cannot even imagine any of that life changing heartache. God bless our wonderful military. Without them where would we be?

    Saddest thing ever.

  17. What a wonderful Fall treat Kitty, my tummy is rumbling! I am so thankful Connor will be home soon, that is tragic about his friend...prayers for them all...

  18. Oh I know dear Kitty that your family will be so glad to see Connor. Prayers have surely been lifted up for that young man. I will pray for accident with the other guy too. Lord, just help us all is my words these days Kitty. That apple crunch looks divine. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  19. What wonderful news! Connor is just days away from coming home. What a praise!!! We love apples, so thanks for posting the recipe.

  20. Oh, this looks so yummy! I always look to see if the recipe has oats in it because my dear, sweet hubby doesn't like it with oats. I think I shared that with you before, come to think of it. Anyhow, this sounds like the kind he would just love! And, oh, it did my heart good to read that Connor will soon be home with you! His poor friend! SO, so sad - can you imagine how much pain he is in continually? Dear Lord, please have mercy and help him and all who are suffering. And may the Lord bless you richly, my friend!

  21. I do like the owl and your apple crunch looks delicious.

    So pleased that Connor will be home soon.
    Prayers for his friend.

    Take care.

    All the best Jan

  22. So happy to hear Connor can return home. Prayers for his friend for a speedy recovery. Your apple crunch looks wonderful. I like vanilla ice cream on my apple desserts. Such a cute owl. You have the cutest cups. Happy weekend Kitty.

  23. Hi Kitty, What a celebration your family will have when Connor returns, I will never forget waiting on the flight line waiting for my son's plane to land after Dessert Storm, what a moment!! So grateful for you and your family! We would love your awesome apple crunch and thanks so much for sharing it with us at Full Plate Thursday, 556!
