With Thanksgiving already come and gone, there was a lot of different recipes I had
to make, some good and some severely bad. Around here at the holidays I am always
first voted to make the desserts, because we all know I have a serious baking addiction.
One thing I’ve made for many years is apple crumble and apple crisps, which yes are
pretty much the same.
This year however, my Mom decided she wanted me to switch things up and conform
my already yummy apple crisp into an apple cranberry crumble. At first I was a little
hesitant because well, I hate changing up the good stuff. Since she was already doing
all the Thanksgiving cooking I figured I’d do at least one thing she requests and make
her something she really wanted.
I’d like to note, this recipe is sweet. If you don’t have a serious sweet tooth, you may not
like this. It has a sweet and sour taste but turned out real good! I also doubled the batch
to make a little larger, but would have been fine without the batch double after all.
Apple Cranberry Crumble Recipe
• 1/2 cup flour
• 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
• 1/4 cup brown sugar
• 1/4 cup chilled butter (chopped small pieces)
• 6 cups peeled and sliced apples
• 1 cup cranberries (fresh/frozen)
• 1/3 cup orange juice
• 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees
- Combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter in bowl (I used my countertop mixer for this step)
- Combine apples and cranberries in large bowl
- Combine juice, 2 tablespoons of sugar and cornstarch in small bowl. Mix until sugar and cornstarch dissolve
- Pour wet mixture over apples & cranberries and toss
- Spread fruit mixture into baking dish
- Spread flour mixture over top
- Bake until crumble is bubbly and golden (approximately 40 minutes)
This recipe can serve 6 to 8 people and is delicious with whipped cream or ice cream,
whichever you would prefer! It is a delicious recipe for any time of the year and is
quite easy to make. With my apples, I didn’t peel them for my batch as I just can’t be
bothered but it does have a better texture when apples are peeled. Again, this is a
preference thing, do what you prefer!
Hope you enjoy this recipe and let us know if you try it!
