Perfect Fall Dessert ...

This easy recipe, from my friend Shannon, made a delicious crisp! I love the addition of the cranberries and walnuts. They give nice texture and color. It would really be nice with a scoop or two of vanilla ice cream ...
1 cup each: brown sugar and flour
1/2 cup each: chopped walnuts and old fashioned oats
1 t ground cinnamon
8 T (1/2 cup) butter
5 cups cored, peeled and sliced apples
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/4 cup sugar
1 T fresh lemon juice
Heat oven to 350°. In a medium bowl, mix brown sugar, flour, nuts, oats and cinnamon. Set aside. In a small bowl, melt butter; pour over dry ingredients. Stir til large crumbs form. Set aside.
In another medium bowl, toss apples and cranberries with sugar and lemon juice. Pour fruit mixture into a 2 quart baking dish; sprinkle with topping.
Bake 1 hour. Serve warm or at room temperature.

  1. I love the sound of the cranberries and walnuts. Unfortunatley one of the few things I do not eat is cooked apples. I know, 'Un-American' isn't it? lol
