abigail donnelly's old fashioned apple crumble with a twist, apple and pear crumble with nutty topping, nutty topping for apple pie, apple tart, apple pie, apple crumble, apple pie a la mode, old fashioned treats, tea time, tami magnin, rumtumtiggsApples and pears make a great combination as it adds a bit of depth to the flavour and gives the texture a bit of oomph. I must admit that laziness was the reason that the nutty crumble topping came about as I was in no mood to wait until it chilled enough to be grated so I just blitzed the ingredients in the food processor and added a generous handful of mixed nuts while the machine was running. This resulted in a crunchy topping that made the tart a little more special.
