You know what makes me cringe? Cranberry sauce in a can and the sound it makes when it falls out of the can. Blah! But, turkey and cranberry sauce are a must at the Thanksgiving table each year. I wanted to put a different spin on the traditional cranberry garnish – introducing Cranberry Apple Crunch!
3 cups chopped apples with peel
2 cups fresh cranberries
1/3 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
- Mix all ingredients in a medium sized bowl and pour into a 9×13 baking dish. If you want a thicker base layer, use a smaller baking dish.
1 stick of butter
1 cup oatmeal
1/4 cup flour
1/3 cup chopped pecans
- Melt butter and mix in all other ingredients. Spread topping mixture on top of the cranberry/apple base layer.
- Little secret – I double the topping when using a 9×13 baking dish and sometimes throw in extra pecans. More is better with this recipe!
- Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
