This traditional New England dessert comes from Mrs. R, who is from New England. An apple slump is a rustic dessert made with apples, sugar, and cinnamon and topped with a simple biscuit dough. The dish is then inverted so the biscuit is on the bottom and the apple mixture is on top. It is a comforting and homely dessert perfect for a cold autumn day.
Apple Slump is a simple dessert and a great way to use fresh apples. It can be served warm or cold, and if you don’t want to serve it with the suggested Hard Sauce, it is delicious with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
