Cranberry Apple Crisp ~ a sweet comfort food




I have been on a "crisp" making kick lately.  They are so simple to make, even when your busy, there is always time to make a fruit crisp.  .....there is ALWAYS time for something sweet!



Do you have a sweet tooth?  Just today my sister and I were talking about how I have such a sweet tooth and she doesn't, but her daughter does, and mine doesn't....how does that happen?  I need a little something sweet everyday or I would die.  No, not really, but I did just finish making and eating that whole plate full pictured below and I'm already thinking about another dessert I want to bake.


We all have out own crisp recipes and all are good.  Besides sharing with you these recipes, I like to keep them on my blog for my own personal use and o-r-g-a-n-i-z-a-t-i-o-n.  It really helps because I am not.



This is one of my favorites.  Apples, cranberries, and oats are so old-fashioned and homey.  They are saying "hello autumn"!  Plus makes your house smell so good!!

Cranberry Apple Crisp 

Ingredients

  • 4 large tart apples peeled, cored, and sliced....I used the old reliable, Granny Smith Apples
  • 1~1/2 cups cranberries...you can reduce or increase by 1/2 cup to your liking
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup  flour plus 3 tbsp more
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
    Heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl add the apples, cranberries, sugar, cinnamon, salt, and 3 tbsp flour. Mix together and place in a buttered baking dish.

    Combine 1 cup flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal in a large bowl.  Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or fork.  Stir in the nuts.  Spoon over the fruit mixture.

    Bake for about 40 minutes, until bubbling and top is golden brown.

Oh Jenn...the crisp recipe is delightful, and looks delish! I shall certainly bake one up for Thanksgiving, along with a pumpkin pie of course. Can one ever have too many desserts? Thank you for sharing your "yummerlies" from far!
