Cranberry Crunch

Photo: Oxmoor House

Cranberries, blueberries, and Concord grapes are the only berries native to America that are commercially grown. Cranberries were first used by Native Americans, who valued them as a food, fabric dye, and healing agent. American farmers now harvest over 40,000 acres of cranberries a year, meaning you can find them fresh over the fall and winter months. This recipe highlights their fresh natural flavor while adding a little oat-enhanced crunch for interest.

Ingredients

  • Topping:

  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, cut into small pieces

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 1/2 cups reduced-fat vanilla bean ice cream

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. 2. To prepare topping, weigh or lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, oats, and brown sugar in a medium bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Cover and chill until ready to use.
  3. 3. To prepare filling, combine cranberries and next 4 ingredients (through cornstarch) in a medium saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 5 to 8 minutes or until cranberries pop. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla; pour mixture into an 8-inch square metal baking pan coated with cooking spray.
