Every bite of Cinnamon Apple Pecan Crumble tastes just like fall! 

Apple Season

Every year I look forward to apple season. Probably because apples remind me of my childhood and memories of our kitchen overflowing with the sweet aroma of yummy comfort foods baking in the oven. 

I mean, seriously, it’s really hard to beat a big nice warm slice of Grandma’s Favorite Apple Pie, a plate full of fresh Apple Pie Fritters, or a slice of Old-Fashioned Praline Apple Bread.

Not to mention a hearty bowl of Apple Pie Oatmeal on a cold morning. Besides that, a bowl of Healthy Apple Salad or a sweet and juicy Old-Fashioned Double-Dipped Caramel Apple make the perfect afternoon snack!

Warm Autumn Spices

Toasty cinnamon, spicy cloves, and aromatic allspice are just a few warm spices that remind me of crisp fall days. 

Some of the most popular warm autumn spices are:

In addition to all those delectable desserts, a mug full of Mulled Apple Cider also hits the spot on a chilly autumn day. 


Now on to this uncomplicated and easy-to-make Cinnamon Apple Pecan Crumble Dessert. This recipe is such a great way to use up some of those extra apples you may find lying around your kitchen. It really doesn’t matter what variety of apples you use in this recipe because I think they all taste amazing! Better yet, mix several different varieties of apples! 

So Good!

Can you see the cinnamon, apples, and chopped pecans in the picture above? Let me tell ya… the combination is so incredibly good! 


Although Cinnamon Apple Pecan Crumble is great all by itself, I like to fancy it up a bit by adding a dollop of whipped topping or a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream.
