I found this in an EveryDay Food magazine and it’s officially ‘Emeril’s’ recipe.  I have a basic crumb topping that I regularly use but I followed this recipe quite closely and it was very tasty.

Cranberry and Apple Crisp


1/2 c. butter

2/3 c. EACH flour AND oatmeal

3/4 c. brown sugar

1/2 t. EACH cinnamon AND nutmeg

1/4 t. salt

1/2 c. chopped walnuts

Put all of the ingredients except the walnuts into a small bowl and use a pastry cutter to combine.  Once the mixture has a crumbly texture, add the nuts.

Fruity Goodness

6 firm apples – peeled, cored and diced

1 (12 oz/340 g) bag of cranberries – apparently frozen will work fine, but I used fresh

1/2 c. sugar AND 3 T. flour

1 t. vanilla

zest of 1 orange AND 1 T. orange juice

Preheat the oven to 375 and grease a 9 x 13 pan.

In a large bowl, combine all of the ‘Fruity Goodness’ , pour into the baking dish and cover evenly with the ‘Topping’.

Bake about 50 minutes until the top is brown and crispy – because this is ‘crisp’, more baking time is actually better – and let it rest for about 15 minutes before serving.  This is very tasty with vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy.
