  1. Butter an 11 x 7-inch baking dish.
  2. For the topping: mix together flour, cinnamon, oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Add in cold butter and rub in with fingertips until moist clumps form; refrigerate while making the filling.
  4. To make filling: Set oven to 375 degrees.
  5. Mix together the sliced apples, cranberries, maple syrup, brown sugar and flour; transfer to prepared baking dish.
  6. Bake the apple mixture for 20 minutes; remove from oven and sprinkle the topping over the hot apple mixture.
  7. Return to oven and bake for about 35-40 minutes more, until the juices are bubbly and the topping is golden brown.
  8. Let stand 15 minutes before serving.
  9. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.

I found this recipe in Bon Appetit years ago, but never got around to rate it. We have friends who grow cranberries, so this is a must in the fall when they are fresh! Lovely!!!

Yummy! My son loves fruit desserts so I make them often. Loved the combination of apples and cranberries, and used Grade B maple syrup. Not overly sweet or heavy, perfect served with ice cream. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

Perfect. This is MY kind of dessert! I am a lazy bum & didn't peel the apples. I think I'll skip the brown sugar & add more maple syrup instead. MMMM. everybody loved this & the kids finished it for breakfast. :) Thanks, Kitzy & I hope you're doing well. xoxoxoxoxo
