I made this as part of a really casual dinner we had with friends. This crisp, along with my Italian Beef & Vegetable Stew was the perfect Fall dinner.
If you're not a cranberry fan, you can easily leave them out and just have an apple crisp, but the tart cranberries make it really special for me.
Here are some step by step photos, but the complete recipe can be found at MyWellBeing.com (updated!).
I soaked the dried cranberries in the orange juice to plump them up a little bit while I made the filling. As I mentioned, the orange zest really put this over the top.
I peeled and chunked the apples, then added flour, sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
Then I added the cranberries in orange juice and tossed it all together. I used this deep baking dish from Target which worked perfectly... I think it was $10!
I topped it with the crisp mixture of butter, sugar, salt and flour. It is basically a crumbled buttery sugar cookie on top. Yum.
Ready for the oven, or fridge/freezer if you're making in advance.
Hot and bubbly!
