Crumbles are basically inverted fruit tarts. They are so easy to make and so delicious to eat. Although you can use many different fruits to make them (think peaches, pears, raspberries), the staple is usually apple. This recipe offers the perfect balance between sweetness and butter. It takes a little more than an hour to bake, but very few minutes to make.
