Recipe for Apple Cranberry Dessert Crisp

Apple Cranberry Crisp with Oatmeal and Coconut Topping


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.

Apples and Cranberries

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.

Baking Tip

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).
