Apple Cherry Crumble Dessert on cutting board.

Apple crumble, apple crisp, apple whatever! I love them all. I’ve looked high and low for the perfect crumble topping and I’ve finally come up with the perfect combination of crispy, chunky, buttery and crumbly. Adding in some fresh cherries make this Apple Cherry Crumble recipe a new family favorite.

This dessert is perfect for cool nights when all you want to do is bundle up with a warm blanket, cup of tea, and book. This is also a great recipe when you need a yummy dessert to bring to a party or family dinner. I’ve also made mini versions and given them out in little mason jars. They were adorable!

Picking the Right Apples for Crumbles, Pies, and Crisps

Picking apples for a crisp or crumble recipe can be tricky. Everyone has their favorite. I grew up with granny smith apples in my mother’s apple crisp recipe. Now I like to mix it up and put a few different types.

Some of my favorites are Golden Delicious, Fuji, Braeburn, and Granny Smith.

The wrong apple can really mess up any apple crisp or pie so be careful to skip using McIntosh and Red Delicious apples, these will make great applesauce but that’s not the texture you want in your pie.

Great Varieties for your Apple Crumble, Crisps of Pies

Granny Smith – Green, firm and a bit sour. (Don’t be afraid of the sour, there is plenty of sugar in this recipe to offset that.

Jonagold – Tart, tangy with a sweetness.

Braeburn – Very firm with an almost a citrus-y aroma.

Golden Delicious – Mild and perfect to mix with another apple.

Honeycrisp –  Sweet and relatively firm.

Fuji – Crisp and sweet and fresh-tasting.

Pink Lady – Sweet and a little sour, great texture.
