Cranberry Apple Crisp

I volunteered to make this recipe and do a guest blog for Wendy from the the Simply Me blog. She is attempting to cook her way through all the recipes in Simply in Season, part of a trilogy of cookbooks. I made a cranberry apple crisp which I thought was one of the best fall desserts Ive had in a while. Its not overly sweet and the tart flavor of the cranberries really add a nice touch.  This would be a really good dessert to take to potlucks or to serve at your Thanksgiving table.

Check out Wendy’s blog here..


4 cups apples, peeled and slice- I used Macintosh apples

2 cups cranberries

1/4 cup brown sugar

1 tsp orange zest

Toss everything together in a large bowl and pour into an 8×8 baking dish that has been sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup flour

3/4 cup oats

1/2 cup oat bran

1 tsp cinnamon

Stir all together in bowl.

4 tbsp butter, softened

1 tbsp oil- I used canola

1/3 cup nuts (optional)- I didnt use

Cut into flour mixture until crumbly and sprinkle over apple mixture. Bake at 350 for 45 mins.
