We're celebrating our Series A and partnership with TechCrunch and inviting you to join us for MilkRun in the Kitchen where our CEO & Founder Julia Niiro joins our resident chef and Market Manager Brett Harmon to make TechCrunchies (aka Apple Crisp)

Whenever I'm thinking of what to bring to my fall get togethers, the first thing that comes to mind is this apple crumble. It can be thrown together in a few minutes and takes as long to cook as it takes me to get ready. Best thing about this recipe is its perfect for whatever happens to be in season, apples, pears, or berries. This recipe is simple, fun, and sure to impress and your next gathering.Ingredients.

For the Filling:

  • 6-7 Apples

  • 2T Sugar

  • 1 3/4t Cinnamon

  • 1 1/2t Lemon Juice

For the Streusel:

  • 1c Brown Sugar

  • 3/4c Oats

  • 3/4c Flour

  • 1/2c Cold Butter

  • Pinch Kosher


  1. Preheat your over to 350*
  2. Peel and cut apples. Dice or slice is fine, a difference in shapes and sizes keeps things fun and interesting.
  3. Toss apples with sugar, cinnamon, and lemon juice. Set them aside. This step can be done a few hours a head of time as well.
  4. Mix oats, brown sugar, flour, and salt in a bowl.
  5. Cut Butter into cubes.
  6. Cut butter into dry ingredients using a pastry cutter or two forks. Once incorporated, finish mixing by hand, breaking up the remaining larger pieces of butter into pebble sized or smaller pieces.
  7. Spray a baking dish with nonstick spray.
  8. Pour your apples into the baking dish, making sure to get all of the yummy liquid at the bottom of the bowl.
  9. Cover with your streusel. You want to fill all of the nooks and crannies that the apples have created, without packing it down too tight. It's better to have a loose topping as opposed to one that's heavy and packed down.
  10. Bake for 30-45min depending on your oven. Looking for it to be golden brown and delicious. The bubbles will let you know when its done.
  11. Hit it with a scoop of ice cream and you're ready to enjoy!
