8 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)

This simple dessert satisfies. Serve it with vanilla ice cream. We used Braeburn apples, but Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, or any other tart variety will do.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until mixture resembles coarse meal.

Step 3

Combine apple and cranberries in a large bowl. Combine juice and remaining ingredients; pour over apple mixture. Toss well. Spoon apple mixture into a 2-quart baking dish. Sprinkle with flour mixture. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Serve warm.

This was a great recipe and goes well with ice cream.  I would definitely make it again.

A good crumble recipe. Not the best ever, but pretty yummy. I replaced half the flour in the topping with oats and added cinnamon and nutmeg to both parts. Unless you're feeding super models, this will not serve eight--six at most.

I used granny smith and fuji apples, golden raisins in place of cranberries, and replaced 1/4 of the flour with oats. The oats get a little chopped up in the food processor. I also added a little cinnamon and nutmeg because it just seemed like they were missing.

Amazing! We have a lot of fresh apples from apple picking so I have been trolling for recipes that include apple this weekend so I can use them in some yummy meals / desserts. I came across this recipe in one of my C.L. cookbooks and decided to give it a shot since I had everything but the cranberries on hand in my pantry. Wow! - Super easy and it tastes amazing! Fair warning, it's very tart (reminds me of cherry pie), but the crumble on top is sweet which helps balance and straight from the oven on a crisp fall evening, I definitely think this recipe was a star. I will be making this one of my recipes to make / remember when apples and cranberries are fresh & in season. Enjoy!

This was great! We all love apple pies and crumbles and this one was one of the best. I brought it to a dinner and baked it at their house. I put the topping on right before I baked it so that it wouldn't get soggy. I also used dried cranberries and it was really good.

Wonderful - Made it with dried cranberries (craisins) instead of fresh and it was still delicious (maybe even better?)! One of my new favorite dessert recipes!
