Apple-Cranberry Crisp

It has rained all day – not just rained, it has been a down pour!  When the water reaches from the bus garage to the handicap ramp at the board office, things are getting serious.  I start thinking about a boat.  This morning there was a 24 inch leak in the ceiling, from the wall near the copier towards the light fixture.  There was a constant drip, drip, drip into three trash cans all day!  It was so bad I opted to stay in at lunch!  Now, twelve hours later, it’s still raining!  Tonight’s supper had to be good, had to make up for the lousy weather!  I think it did!  Our main dish was country ham, julienned, and cooked with onions sauteed in butter and white wine, atop three corn cakes.  That will be tomorrow’s post!  And dessert was this lovely crisp – apples and cranberries topped with a flour, brown sugar, oatmeal, butter and spice mixture!  And a dollop of ice cream – just to make things a little more interesting!


Apple-Cranberry Crisp

  • 4 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/2 cup cranberries
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/3 cup cold butter
  • ice cream, optional

Place the apples and cranberries in a greased 8-inch square baking dish.  In a medium bowl combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and all-spice; cut in butter until mixture is soft and crumbly.  Sprinkle over apples and cranberries.  Bake in a 400 degree oven for 30 minutes or until apples are tender.  Serve warm, with ice cream!  Enjoy!
