delicious! i'm surprised people found the filling soupy--mine isn't at all. i subbed whole wheat flour for half the flour, was 4 oz short of cranberries so i added 4oz of dark sweet pitted cherries (well-rinsed so there was no juice) after i mixed in the apples, used chopped clementine rind instead of grated orange rind, & used several kinds of apples. also i used a food processor to cut in the butter to the flour mixture. i'm currently trying to go through all of CL's crumble/crisp/cobbler recipes, but i'd definitely return to this after i'm through.

This is my FAVORITE holiday dessert. I've made it every year for 3 years. When it's cooking it just smells like Christmas. We eat it now every Christmas eve. So good!
