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.
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.
