It is a great comfort food. Nothing beats homemade. Best served with French vanilla ice cream. Looking forward to other combinations and comments.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Place a rack in the middle position in the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.

  • Combine apples, dried cranberries, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, lemon juice, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, and 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg together in a bowl until apples and cranberries are well-coated; spread filling into the prepared baking dish.

  • Mix oats, brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, butter, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg, baking soda, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl using your hands until well-mixed; sprinkle over the filling. Place baking dish on the prepared baking sheet.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until filling is bubbling and topping is golden brown, 55 to 60 minutes. Remove baking dish from oven and cool crisp for 15 minutes before serving.

Cook's Note:

I have also added 3 peeled and sliced fresh peaches minus two apples and the cranberries.

A variety of apples works best: 2 Empire, 1 MacIntosh, 2 Granny Smith, 2 Red Delicious, and 2 Gala.

Nice recipe. I didn't have enough apples so I used what I had and made up the difference with a frozen berry medley (strawberries blueberries blackberries and raspberries...just berries with nothing on them). Turned out great! Served warm with a little half and half...didn't have any ice cream.. Read More

The addition of the dried cranberries was a nice change of pace from our usual apple crisp. It was wonderful served with vanilla ice cream. Read More

I really liked this recipe. The second time I made it I used less nutmeg and substituting golden raisins for the cranberries. Not that there was anything wrong with the given recipe I just tailored it more to suit my personal preferences. Thank you Stoney Lake Read More
