cranberry apple crisp

it’s apple season and after a wonderful trip to the cider mill last week, i was anxious to try a new recipe for apple crisp.  this one came from Susan Branch’s book titled Autumn. the recipe was not only delicious, but it made the kitchen smell so inviting.

i used gala apples and adapted the recipe a bit to use some of the ingredients in my pantry.  the outcome was fantastic. 

to make the crisp:  preheat the oven to 375 degrees. spray a ceramic cooking dish with original spray. peel and slice 3-4 apples into small cubes. place in the dish along with 1/2 cup of dried cranberries and 1/2 cup of sliced almonds. i also added a sprinkle of orange peel. then, add 1/4 cup of water or apple juice to the dish.

mix the following ingredients together:  3/4 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup oats,  3/4 teaspoon cinnamon, 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg, and1/3 cup soft margarine.  sprinkle the mixture over the fruit. bake for 30 minutes.
serve hot with ice cream or cold with whipped cream.  as Susan Branch says, “it doesn’t get any better than this.”
