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.
Looks classy! Recipe is also very simpl. I should try and let you know..hope you had a great Christmas ?
We had a wonderful time, hope it was the same for you, Snehal!
This sounds fabulous! I prefer a little bit of tartness in pies and crisps, and the cranberries would be wonderful for that. Thanks!
Thank you, Denise!
This looks delicious! Thanks so much for sharing!
My pleasure, Erin!
I love the idea of adding the cranberry! Apple crisp is my favorite..I will definitely be trying this!
Try and let me know, Madi!
Oh yumm, this makes me hungry just reading this. I can’t wait to try it.
I hope you like it, Tiffani!
That looks so delicious! I’ll have to try making it next Christmas!
You will love it, Diana!
Oh! This looks so delicious and seasonal! I am always looking for new ways to enjoy cranberries! They are underused!
I love cranberries, Reesa, I also love to add them in my salad.
Ooooh that looks so delish, might have to make some for my coworkers. Thanks for the recipe!
Thank you, Krysten!
Cranberry apple crisp sounds AMAZING!! I need to make this! Yum! My husband would love this!
I make an apple crisp that’s very similar to this, but I never thought of adding cranberry to it, too. I just don’t usually use pecans since I don’t care for them, and it’s still delicious and crunchy for anyone who doesn’t like them.
We love pecan, we bought that huge bag and we add them in everything, Stephanie.
This looks so delicious. It’s fun to see cranberries used more than just out of a can as a side dish!
So true, Nicole!
Oh my lord this looks heavenly. Thanks so much for sharing will definitely try this!
Thank you, Ana!
I love apple crisp and cranberries.. you blew my mind. I cant believe I never thought to put them together! I put raisins in my crisp every once in awhile, but cranberries/craisins is so brilliant! ive never put nuts in my topping. its usually just oats, sugars, cinnamon and butter. I think im going to have to try this recipe, it looks too good to pass up. #PrintingNow
Nicole, you know, I am going to try another one and add raisins.
a simple and delicious recipe. Thanks for sharing.
Thank you, Rupy!
Yum, I love crisps. The difference in textures is really awesome for me. I’ll have to try this one out this weekend!
Try and let me know, Elaine/
I love apple crisp but have never had it with cranberries! That sounds so good! Holidays are definitely best spent with family!
I agree, Angela!
Looks simple and delicious! Great one for winter season.
Thank you, Jenne!
Oh this one looks so yummy and I am a sucker for ice cream even when the weather isn’t as warm as Florida 🙂 Your dessert is definitely one I will try this year, the whole “serve warm AND ice cream” is simply irresistible! Glad you enjoyed a fab family + friends time and thanks for sharing
When I used to live in NJ, I use to have my ice cream even if it’s freezing outside, Henrietta.
I love apple crisp and cranberry crisp too. This is a dessert i would love to serve during the holidays.
It’s a good one for the Holiday, Elizabeth!
This both looks and sounds delicious! I bet my girls would even like eating it for breakfast! 🙂
Mine did the same with the leftover, Flossie.
Oh that looks so good!
