Not too far from where we live, there are huge cranberry bogs where over half of the cranberries in the US are harvested. So, I'm always on the look-out for another good cranberry recipe. This one, from Susan Branch's *Autumn* book, really fits the bill!
- 4 large green apples, peeled & sliced 1/2-inch thick
- 1 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen)
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
- 1⁄2 cup flour
- 1⁄2 cup oats
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1⁄3 cup butter, softened
- Preheat oven to 375; butter a square baking pan or casserole dish.
- Place apple slices in pan, sprinkle with berries.
- Mix topping ingredients; sprinkle over fruits.
- Bake 30 minutes; serve warm with ice cream or serve cold with whipped cream.
I made this for breakfast using a pink lady apple and some frozen cranberries scaled down to serve one. Lovely tart flavours in this. Mine was a little dry as it was cooking so I ended up adding some apple juice to help it along. Served with some vanilla yoghurt for a satisfying brekky. made for ZWT 4.
YUM !! this crisp is outstanding, we loved it. I cut the sugar way back ( we like ours a little on the tart side) and used splenda brown sugar mix. When checking it after 30 minutes i found the apples had not fallen and it seemed a little dry, so I added about a half cup of water and baked it for a further 15 minutes. the flavour really is outstanding and I will make it again, thanks for posting.
