Crisp topping and sweet apples are paired with tart cranberries for this Autumn treat! The hardest part of this recipe is peeling and slicing the apples.


Apples & Cranberries
10 Medium Granny Smith Apples, peeled and cut into bite sized pieces
1/4 Cup Granulated Sugar

1 Cup Fresh Or Frozen Cranberries (no need to thaw if frozen)

  1. Place apples, cranberries, granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon in the bottom of a 6 quart crock-pot and stir well to combine.
  2. Mix all ingredients for crisp topping: oatmeal, brown sugar, flour, butter and spices together with a pastry cutter, two knives, in the food processor or with your hands (I used my hands), until combined and crumbly.
