Cranberry Apple Crisp

Cranberry Apple Crisp

Snack

During the fall try doing apple tastings with your kids to determine which varieties are your family’s favorites. For a variation, replace brown sugar with maple sugar. Because we have kept the butter to a minimum in the topping it will not become crispy in a way that you might recognize. It’s delicious even without all the extra butter. This is a nice dessert once in a while as a special treat. Otherwise, small portions make a healthy snack.

  • 2 pounds apples, peeled and sliced
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 3 cups cranberries, washed and picked over
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • A pinch of ground nutmeg

Topping

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter

1. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
2. Mix the apples with lemon juice. Add the cranberries and toss to combine.
3. Add the sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix to coat the apples, and put in a 9 x 9-inch baking dish.
4. In a separate bowl combine the ingredients for the topping and mix well. Blend the butter until evenly distributed.
5. Sprinkle the topping on the apple mixture and bake for 50 minutes or until the apples are tender and the topping is crisp.
