Everyone usually associates cranberry sauce with Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe is a switch for me, as I really wasn't all that fond of the tart cranberry. Pairing sweet apples, cranberry sauce, and the delicious crisp topping is a great breakfast dish or a different take on apple crisp for dessert. It's also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
- 5 medium apples (I like Gala or a mix of Gala and Granny Smith for this recipe)
- 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda granular or 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts or 1⁄4 cup pecans, chopped
- 1 cup oats (I use quick-cook)
- 1⁄3 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup butter, melted
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Peel, core, and slice the apples thinly. Cut the slices in half.
- Stir together the apples, cranberry sauce, Splenda or sugar, and flour. Toss to coat and place in a 9x13 baking dish.
- Mix together the topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the apple mixture.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the fruit is tender.
- Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.
Really easy and tasty crisp! I did one thing differently... I used fresh cranberries and cooked them down with a little sugar first and then added the apples. I left out the nuts in the topping because I was out, but this was still delicious!!! Great served with some vanilla bean ice cream!!! Thanks for sharing with us Amy and may you be at peace...
I understand from reading some of the reviews from some of Redneck Epicurean's other recipes that she has passed away. I didn't know her at all but I feel for her family and what they are going through right now. I still wanted to go ahead and post - just so that others know how great this recipe is!!! I am putting this one in the "yummy file". So easy to make. It smells fantastic while it is baking! The only thing I did different was to double the pecans - I love, love, love pecans. UPDATE: I made this again, this time I used a Lite Cherry Pie filling. It was delicious! Not quite as sweet since there is not as much sugar in the cherries as there is in the cranberry sauce.
I served this "DELIGHTFUL" apple crisp to the staff where I work and I got nothing but praise all day long for it... People were even talking about it the next day. Great recipe. Make sure you use the "whole-berry" cranberry sauce.
