Apple Cranberry Crisp

1 1/2 cup cranberries
4 large tart apples, sliced
1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup oats
1/3 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Preheat oven to 375. Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish. In a large bowl toss the apples and cranberries with sugar. Arrange evenly in baking dish. In a small bowl, stir together nutmeg, cinnamon, flour oats and melted butter. Sprinkle over apple/cranberry mixture. Bake 35 minutes or until the apples soften. Allow to cool slightly and serve.

My thoughts:

This is a slightly tart crisp that would be good for dessert or even breakfast. Or at Thanksgiving, but I don’t think cranberries should be relegated to just one day. Cranberries are so cheap this time of year I always stock up. You can freeze them and they keep for years! They also keep for weeks in the fridge. You can use them in pretty much any recipe that calls for blueberries if you add a little extra sugar and I think they are perfect paired with apples.


  1. Very Fall like. I could use some warm apple-cranberry crisp today…super chilly here.

  2. Mmmm. I love cranberry-apple anything…muffins, crisp, pie, cake, on a salad. You name it. I love the pretty color too.

  3. It is totally the season for wife made a pear/apple the other day

  4. I love the colours in this dish.

  5. yum, looks delicious! I once made an apple-cranberry pie that mysteriously came out tasting like cherry; I’ve never quite figured that one out. But I have a bag of cranberries just sitting in the fridge…

  6. This looks yummy and pretty healthy. I love crisps, cobblers, etc. And I’ve been seeing the bags of cranberries in the grocery store and I wanted an excuse to buy some.

  7. oh yum, i’ve never made a crisp and i really need to. mmm, warm from the overn i bet your house smelled amazing!

  8. this looks amazing! I am going to make it as soon as i can…

  9. You don’t specify whether to mix the flour with the sugar and fruit or with the oat topping???

  10. Anon: I am not sure what you are talking about, read the directions carefully.
