Jane Brody Cranberry Apple Crisp


Cranberry Apple Crisp, Adapted from Jane Brody’s Good Food Book

The tartness of cranberries is a wonderful contrast to sweet apples, and the color is irresistible. This simple yet crowd pleasing dessert messes up only one bowl. (If you prefer a higher ratio of fruit to crust, use 4 cups of cranberries, three apples and 2/3 cup of sugar).

Step 1

1. In a large bowl, combine the cranberries, apples, sugar, cinnamon, and 1 tablespoon of flour. Transfer the mixture into a greased 6 cup shallow baking dish.

2. In the same bowl (no need to wash it), combine the remaining flour, brown sugar, oats, and nuts. Stir in the melted butter or margarine and mix the ingredients well (the mixture should be crumbly). Sprinkle the oat mixture over the fruit mixture.

3. Bake the crisp in a preheated 375 degree oven for 40 minutes or until the crisp is lightly browned. Let the crisp stand for 10 minutes before serving.
