Recipe - Apple Cranberry Crisp

This recipe is inspired by a couple recipes I have already.  I added the cranberry for an extra tart punch.  I thought the results were delicious.  I hope you do too!

Mix sliced apples and cranberries.


After adding topping, distribute cubes of butter evenly.


Apple Cranberry Crisp

Ingredients

Fruit layer
3-4 cups apples, peeled and sliced
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/3 cup Demerara* sugar (you can use any sugar but this is a more natural one)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice**


Topping
3/4 cup oats
1/4 cup white whole wheat flour (you can experiment with this)
2/3 cup Demerara sugar*
2 teaspoons baking powder
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 egg
1/4 cup butter, cubed

In a medium-sized bowl mix the ingredients for the fruit layer.  Spray a 9X9 pan with nonstick spray and spread fruit layer ingredients evenly.  Next, in a medium sized bowl, mix oats, flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon until well combined.  Then add egg.  Mixture will be chunky with some dry spots remaining.  Add topping to fruit layer and distribute cubes of butter evenly on top.  Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.





*DEMERARA is a sugar that is only partly refined.  Here is a link explaining more about the different types of sugars.

**NOTE:  If your apples are especially tart, you may skip the lemon juice.  Mine were tart, but I still love the extra kick from the lemon.  You decide.
