Carly Goldsmith

Ingredients

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, chilled and diced, plus more for baking
  • 6 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into large chunks
  • ¾ cup dried cranberries
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 ½ cups flour
  • ¾ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup oatmeal
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • Whipped cream or ice cream, for serving (optional)

Apple season is here! For me, there is no better dish to celebrate the glory of apples than a warm apple crisp. Its sweet, homey flavors are so familiar and comforting —  it just begs to be eaten on a chilly autumn night. This twist on a classic recipe brings in the tartness of cranberries for an extra punch of flavor. It's great with raisins too, or pears. For a more decadent treat, serve alongside whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. 

Butter a baking dish.

In a large bowl, mix the apples with the cranberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, ½ cup sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Mix well to evenly coat the apples and pour into the buttered baking dish.

In the bowl of an electric mixer*, combine the flour, remaining sugar, brown sugar, oatmeal, salt, and butter. Mix on low speed until the ingredients are incorporated and the butter is in pea-sized clumps. Scatter evenly over the apples.

Bake for approximately 1 hour, until the top is brown and the apples are bubbly. Serve warm, with whipped cream or ice cream if desired.
