Cranberry Apple Crunch


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!


Base Layer:

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.

Welcome! I am the bayou gypsy, born and raised in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Although I have spread my wings in the great cities of Austin, Seattle and Delray Beach, the bayou state kept calling me back home in 2007. Thank goodness for the pull back home because that is where I met and married my husband, Andrew. We relocated to 7 acres in Zachary, LA and have started life on a farm. It's the land of bayous, fishing, hunting, four wheelers, trucks, nutria, deer, cows, three rescue pups named Abby James, Dixie and Gypsy, two rescue horses named Sparkle and Freedom, 20 chickens, 2 turkeys named Leroy & Luann and everything else southern. I have started this personal blog to chronicle our new found farm life, the battles and blessings of our ongoing infertility, our recent adoption and the exciting adventures this bayou gypsy and her cowboy get into on the regular. I dabble in a little bit of everything and will share it all with you one wild ride at a time. Come wander with me...y'all!
