apple speculoos crumble

Happy US Election Day…maybe…depending on how you see it.  For voting day, I’ve made patriotic ramekins of Apple Speculoos Crumble. This uses speculoos spice cookies to top apples and (optional) raisins. I decided to kill two birds with one stone and made my own speculoos using the recipe in the book. I have a log of raw dough in the freezer to bake later and post about whenever its time rolls around.

I wasn’t crazy about this one, I have to admit. For me, was like just having loose cookie chunks on top of baked fruit chunks. Nothing wrong with that, I suppose, and frankly store bought Biscoff cookies may have worked better consistency-wise, but I prefer a more traditional crisp or crumble topping to what I made here. And I like when the fruit has a bit of thickener in it and gets a little saucier than mine did here, so it’s held together better. Maybe I can fiddle with it a little bit another time.

For the recipe, see Baking Chez Moi by Dorie Greenspan. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the TWD Blogroll!

  1. I will keep your thoughts in mind when I make this one. Although I am serving it with pumpkin pie so texture change will be nice. Like the individual servings you made.

  2. They still look really tasty. I made Dorie’s speculoos for this recipe too and had to use a mini chopper to break them up since they were so hard….I thought I just over-baked them.

    • yes, they were hard, weren’t they? that’s why mine are so piecey and i wondered if store-bought would have worked better…

  3. Cookies on top of fruit sounds A-OK to me 🙂


  4. Is there any other substitute for apple for this recipe??

    • Pears would be a great fall substitute…for summery fruits, peaches, nectarines or plums.

  5. I love anything with speculoos!
