Cranberry Apple Crisp

February 17, 2009 § Leave a comment


Crisps are super simple, require few ingredients, are easily portable (if you’re headed to a potluck), and they’re just so good.  I made this crisp this past weekend for my cousin, his girlfriend and my grandma; we ate it warm with scoops of vanilla ice cream.  It’s tweaked from a recipe from my Mom’s friend Sandy, who lives around the corner.

3-4 medium-large apples, peeled and thinly sliced (I used 1 Gala, 2 Granny Smith)
2 cups fresh or frozen & thawed cranberries
1/2 cup white whole-wheat flour
2 tablespoons whole wheat flour

3/4 cup turbinado sugar
3/4 cup quick oats
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon all spice
3/4 cup pecans, chopped
1/2 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter


1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Peel and chop apples.  Place in bottom of a 2-quart baking dish.  Add cranberries. Toss with 3/4 tubinado sugar.  Add 2 tablespoons whole-wheat flour and set aside.

2.  In a mixing bowl, stir oats, spices, brown sugar, white whole-wheat flour together.  Break in butter and mix until crumbly.  Stir in pecans.

3.  Spoon dough mixture over apples and cranberries.  Bake in the oven for 45-50 minutes until the top is golden brown.

4.  Remove from oven and let sit for about 5-10 minutes. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
