Apple Cranberry Crisp

Posted on August 19, 2013
Hi, Everyone! As it was a cold and rainy morning today, it felt appropriate to be baking this warm and cozy Apple Cranberry Crisp! This is my favorite recipe to use for crisps because it’s deliciously buttery and crunchy and works so well with different kinds of fruits. Since fall is almost here, I used some tart apples and added in dried cranberries flavored with some fresh orange juice. Together with the sweet topping and delicious scents of cinnamon, this dessert created an instant aroma of warmth in my kitchen on this rainy day!

APPLE CRANBERRY CRISP
(Adapted from Martha Stewart)
*Serves 6*
 .
YOU WILL NEED
FILLING
3lbs apples (8 medium sized apples)
1/8 – 1/4 cup dried cranberries
1 tbs granulated sugar
Fresh lemon juice from half of a lemon
1 tsp ground cinnamon
Fresh juice of one orange
1 tbs all-purpose flour
 .
TOPPING
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
4oz (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup rolled oats
 .
.
DIRECTIONS
1. First, prepare your topping by combining flour, salt and sugar. Using a fork, work in the butter until you have a crumbly mixture. Add in the rolled oats, and mix until you have moist chunks. Set aside and preheat your oven to 375 deg F.
 .
2. Peel and core your apples, then cut them into chunks and place them in a bowl. Soak your dried cranberries in the fresh juice of one orange (let them soak for a couple of minutes until they are plump). Add fresh lemon juice, ground cinnamon, sugar and a tbs of flour to the apples and toss everything together well. Add in the cranberries and about 2 tbs of the orange juice that they had been soaking in. Toss everything together again, then pour the apples into your baking dish (I used a regular pie dish) and sprinkle the topping on evenly. Bake for about 55 minutes to an hour, until the apples are bubbling and the topping is golden brown. (*Note: I covered the crisp with foil after about 10 minutes of baking and kept it covered for the rest of the baking time, then took it off for the last couple of minutes for it to get golden brown). Let cool for a couple of minutes, then serve with a scoop (or two!) of vanilla ice-cream.

Happy Baking, Everyone!

    This looks great! I eat oatmeal with apples and cranberries at least three times a week for breakfast, it never occurred to me to throw the cranberries into apple crisp. Great recipes and beautiful blog.
