Apple Cranberry Crisp

My friend, Mrs. T from Across my Kitchen Table recently shared a recipe for Apple Cranberry Crisp with me and I couldn't wait to try it! Yesterday, it was chilly outside, so I made a big pot of potato soup and baked some homemade buttermilk biscuits for dinner and this Apple Cranberry Crisp for dessert.
Apples
Sweet gala apples and fresh tart cranberries.

Topping
Topped with a brown sugar and oat topping.

Here is the recipe:

APPLE CRANBERRY CRISP
3 cups chopped unpeeled apples (I peeled mine)
2 cups raw cranberries
3/4 cup sugar


TOPPING:

1 1/2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats

1/3 cup brown sugar, packed

1/3 cup whole wheat or all-purpose flour

1/3 cup chopped pecans

1/3 cup canola oil (I used butter)


Combine the apples, cranberries and sugar in a 9” square baking dish or a 2-qt. casserole dish. Mix thoroughly to blend; set aside. Combine topping ingredients until crumbly; spread evenly over fruit layer. Bake at 350ยบ for 1 hour or until the fruit is fork-tender. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Thank you for the delicious recipe, Mrs. T!

Crisp
Hot and bubbly from the oven.

We had ours topped with whipped cream. Yum! The cranberries turned the apples such a pretty red, perfect for Christmas. Let me know if you try it!

Just what I like - simple, fruity and it would be fabulous with some vanilla ice cream! Your potato soup and homemade buttermilk biscuits sounded really good too. I guess I need to stop blogging and make some lunch - it's noon here!

That looks delicious. I love the tart taset of cranberries. Paired with apples should give a good combination of tartness and juicy sweetness.

Sounds like a keeper for sure!

I'm back to say that I made this for Friday evening dessert. We served it with Vanilla Bean Ice Cream. Dee lish. I baked it in my little toaster oven which worked great. Didn't have to heat up the whole oven for one small dish. It was so easy to fix. What a great recipe.
