It’s day 4 of Thanksgiving week on the blog and so far this week I’ve shared recipes for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese, Salted Caramel Pecan Baked Brie and Oven Roasted Turkey with Maple Apple Reduction.

Today, I’m excited to share my new twist on an Apple Crumble, it’s so simple, but really takes this dessert from delicious, to absolute fall perfection! The new twist? Adding pumpkin spice to the crumble!

Pumpkin spice does not actually contain pumpkin, it’s simply the spices combined to make a pumpkin spice mix, which includes cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves and allspice.

It’s easy to make a mason jar of homemade pumpkin pie spice and keep it on hand for delicious recipes like this apple crumble!

How do you make Apple Crumble?

Add sliced apples to a baking dish. Combine melted butter and pumpkin pie spice and pour over the apples. Combine brown sugar, flour, pumpkin pie spice and cold butter to form a crumble and sprinkle over the apples.

Place in the oven and bake for 40 minutes.

What is the difference between a crisp and a crumble?

A crisp contains oats in the topping, whereas a crumble does not. Simple as that!

Want to turn this delicious Pumpkin Spice Apple Crumble into an apple crisp with the addition of oats? Simply add 1 cup oats, an additional ½ cup flour and an additional 4 tbsp cold butter to the topping mixture. Combine and sprinkle on top, just like the crumble!

How to Make Apple Crumble Gluten Free

Making this apple crumble gluten free is so easy, simply swap the flour for a one-to-one gluten free flour substitute, like Bob’s Red Mill.

How to Reheat Apple Crumble

If you want to cook the apple crumble beforehand and reheat when ready to eat, simply transfer the cooked crumble from the refrigerator to a 350°F oven for 15 minutes.

Want to take this apple crumble seriously over the top?

Drizzle some salted caramel on top after it comes out of the oven!

You can make Homemade Salted Caramel Sauce or purchase pre-made Salted Caramel Sauce in a bottle.

And to take it to a whole other level, scoop some vanilla ice cream on top!
