I had oranges and apples in the house and couldn't find a recipe that used them both so I created this one. This is a great side-dish for a holiday gathering or would even be good as a dessert over French vanilla ice cream -- or even better if you cook this the night before and heat it up before serving. Enjoy!

  • In a large bowl, toss together the apples, oranges, brown sugar, Cheddar cheese, and walnuts. Spread evenly in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Sprinkle crushed crackers evenly over the fruit.

  • Melt the butter in a small saucepan over medium heat and whisk in flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and baking powder. Drizzle over the crackers, then drizzle the creamer over the casserole. Cover with a lid or aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven. Remove from the oven and uncover. Stir gently to fold in the crust.

We loved the spicy natural sweetness of this recipe as a desert. It was not very sweet or rich but had a pleasant and satisfying taste. A great way to end a meal! I will definitely make this again. Read More

This was a surprising blend of flavors in our mouths and was yummy fresh out of the oven. If I decide to try this one again I would omit the oranges as the texture is a bit funny and replace with more apples or maybe pears. The recipe didn't "re-warm" well. Read More
