MORE APPLE CRISP
Did I mention apple crisp is my favorite apple dessert?
Here is another good recipe you may want to try a little later in the year, when the fresh cranberries are available. This one is really good, too.
3 cups peeled, chopped, cooking apples
2 cups fresh cranberries
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 cup regular rolled oats, uncooked
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; toss gently. Place apple mixture in a greased 8-inch square baking dish. Combine oats, brown sugar and salt; stir well. Cut in butter. Sprinkle oat mixture over fruit mixture. Bake at 350 for 1 hour.
May be doubled for a 9x13-inch dish.
I have always melted the butter or margarine before adding to the brown sugar/oatmeal mix. It just seems easier to me.
Again, this needs a scoop of vanilla ice cream, but whipped cream will do as well. Use whichever you prefer.
