Looking for the Best Apple Cranberry Crisp Recipe with Oatmeal and Coconut Topping for dessert?
Here is a mouth-watering apple recipe with fresh OR frozen cranberries to treat your family or guests to a special dessert.
Serve warm or cooled with ice cream or whipped cream, or serve plain. Scrumptious!
8 medium-large apples, cored, peeled and sliced
3/4 cup fresh or frozen cranberries, halved
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 cup quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon, or less
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg, or less
1/4 tsp. ground ginger, or less
1/2 cup cold butter
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1/4 cup desicated coconut
ice cream or whipped cream for garnishing, optional
In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples and the fresh or frozen cranberries.
Add the sugar and toss to coat.
Transfer the fruit to a greased 7" x 11" or a 9" x 13" baking dish.
In another bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, flour and spices.
Using a pastry cutter, or a fork, or your fingers(!), cut in the butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in the nuts and the coconut, and sprinkle over the fruit in the baking dish.
Bake at 375° F for 30 - 35 minutes or until the topping is golden brown and the fruit filling is beginning to bubble.
Serve warm or cooled with ice cream or whipped cream, whipped topping or Greek yogurt.
Serves 8 - 10.
I also used some of the ingredients of this recipe to make four ramekin bowls with the apple dessert too!
If you only have whole nuts on hand for this recipe, simply place the whole nuts between waxed paper (folded), or inside a sealable plastic bag, and roll over the nuts with a pastry roller (see images below).
