Apple Cranberry Crisp

  • Prep Time : 20m

It’s autumn so apple crisp is a mandatory dish for me, at least once a week.  This is a quick and easy one to prepare and after an hour in the oven, you have not only made a tasty dessert but filled your home with a great aroma.

Feel free to use your favorite apple – I really like tart apples and almost always use Granny Smiths.  I also like to mix in the cranberries but you could substitute in raisins, pears or other fall fruits.


  • 6 Apples, Peeled and Chopped
  • 1 Cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/4 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 3/4 Cup Flour
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Cup, plus 2 Tablespoons of Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Cold Margarine, Cubed
  • 1 Cup Rolled Oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 375

Step 2

In a large bowl, use a pastry cutter or knives to cut the flour, brown sugar, salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar into the margarine, until it becomes coarse. Add the oats and mix together by hand into pebble sized pieces. Put the bowl in the freezer.

Step 3

Mix the lemon juice, cinnamon and remaining sugar in a bowl with the chopped apples.

Step 4

Pour the apple mixture into the a baking dish and sprinkle the topping thoroughly across the top. Place in the oven and bake for 55-65 minutes.

Jake switched to a plant based diet in 1996 and quickly realized he had no idea how to cook. All these years later and he's still trying to figure it out...
