One of my greatest joy for the holidays is having my family and friends over. This year was particularly special as everyone traveled to Florida to visit me. The pleasure of eating together, talking, laughing, and dancing made it all priceless.
One of the desserts that I made for this Christmas dinner was a delicious Cran-Apple Crisp which I served with ice-cream.
What you need for the filling
5 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
1 tablespoon butter, softened
One can cranberry sauce
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
What you need for the crumb topping
1 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 stick butter, melted
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon of nutmeg
1 teaspoon ginger powder
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch pie dish with the softened butter. Set aside.
For the filling: In a large mixing bowl, stir together the cranberry sauce, granulated sugar, and flour. Add the apples to the cranberry mixture, the vanilla extract, tossing to coat, and pour the mixture into the prepared pie dish.
For the crumb topping: In another mixing bowl, stir together the oats, flour, brown sugar, melted butter, pecans, nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon. Sprinkle the mixture over the apples in the dish.
Bake until golden brown, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve warm or room temperature.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas time with your loved ones and remember to let me know what you think about this dessert. Enjoy the recipe.
