Happy Harvest season! I developed this recipe because I wanted something that brought all the beautiful flavors of Thanksgiving into one dish — something that feels warm and like I’m sitting at grandma’s table, surrounded by my family and with a plate full of mashed potatoes and gravy, turkey, candied sweet potatoes, a warm bread roll, and this. The perfect accompaniment for a Thanksgiving meal.
The cinnamon is warm, the honeycrisp is sweet, and the butternut squash is savory. The crumble marries well to the beautiful filling. Even though we don’t celebrate Thanksgiving at my grandma’s house anymore, I can imagine spending my morning making this dish, striding in to grandma’s with my hot plate, proudly laying it on the table, and everyone digging in.
