My family and I love desserts made with apples. In fact, I personally would rather have a fruit type dessert over a gooey chocolate cake any day of the week. There is just something about the combination of apples and cinnamon that remind me of Fall. In fact, some of my favorite dessert recipes were cinnamon apple chips, apple cider fritters, and apple chai cobbler. That is until I made this Fireball Apple Crumble. OMG it’s AMAZING!!!

While walking the other night with a friend of mine, she told me about mixing Fireball cinnamon whiskey with apple cider. It sounded good to me so after we got home, my husband tried it and though a bit sweet, it certainly warmed him up; especially since us die hards are walking the track in 30 degree temperatures!

I’m not a huge fan of spirits, so I only had a little taste, but I thought it would make a tasty addition to an apple dessert. Boy was I right! Seriously, you have to try this one.

To start, core, peel and slice McIntosh apples; then toss them in a bowl with Fireball cinnamon whiskey, ground cinnamon, sugar and a cornstarch; then place them into an oven safe baking dish. I opted for individual portions, but a 2qt. baking dish would work as well.

Add a bit of butter to the top; then make the topping. I used McIntosh because they’re a great baking apple and generally take less time to cook.

For the topping, I didn’t want to use a traditional crisp recipe made with oats, flour, brown sugar and butter; so I opted more for a crumb topping (similar to a crumb cake); which is made with sugar, butter and flour instead. Add the topping to the apple mixture; then bake in a 350° F oven for about 30 minutes until the apples are soft. You can tell by poking the insides with the tip of a sharp knife. If it gives you a little resistance, leave it in for another 5-10 minutes.

We allowed our crumble to cool a bit; then topped it with rich, creamy vanilla bean ice cream. OMG! This Fireball Apple Crumble is our new favorite dessert. The whiskey added such a nice flavor. It was so good, I’ll be making it again for Thanksgiving; in a larger quantity of course. . ~Enjoy!
