Cranberry Apple Crisp

There is no better treat to make with the kids during the autumn harvest season then Apple Crisp. My Nanny Kids also love cranberries. So, I decided to add a cup of fresh cranberries to add just a bit of color and tartness to this easy dessert that I originally found from a Betty Crocker cookbook.

Let the kids wash the apples, measure the ingredients, stir the dry ingredients with a fork, pour the apples and cranberries into the baking dish, and sprinkle the topping over the apples and cranberries.

What You Will Need:

4 – 6 tart apples (4 cups)
About 1 cup fresh cranberries
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
8 inch square pan or pie dish
Whipped cream or ice cream, if desired

What to Do:

1. Heat oven to 375 F degrees. Grease bottom and sides of an 8-inch square pan or pie dish with a little shortening.

2. Wash, peel, and slice the apples.

3. Layer the apples in the baking pan or pie plate. Sprinkle the cranberries on top of the apples.

4. In a medium bowl, use a fork to stir the remaining ingredients (except whipped cream or ice cream) until well mixed. Press the butter into the dry ingredients with a fork until the dry ingredients are moist.

5. Allow kids to sprinkle the topping over the apples.

6. Bake about 30-minutes or until topping is golden brown and the apples are tender when pierced with a fork. It’s best served warm with whipped cream or ice cream.
