For the topping:
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temp
For the insides:
5+ of your favorite baking apples
1 cup cranberries
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
2 tsp lemon juice, fresh or bottled
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a good sized baking dish.
2. Combine all the ingredients for the topping in a bowl.Mix it all in and get your fingers in there and work it good until it becomes crumbly. It won't all
get crumbly, don't fret. I did at first and thought it had to all crumble into perfect crumble heaven, but it doesn't.
3. Peel, core and slice the apples and toss them in a bowl with the
white sugar, lemon juice and mix them together gently. Add the
cranberries and mix carefully without mushing the cranberries. I use
frozen cranberries and it works perfectly.
4. Spoon the mixture
into your baking dish and sprinkle the topping on. Bake for about 40
minutes, or until you notice it getting bubbly.
Serve alone, with ice cream or with whipped cream. Or both. Enjoy.
Please note, if you serve this to a man/woman you're wanting to capture the
heart of, be warned: He/she will never leave your side.
