How to Make Apple Cranberry Crisp with Dried Cranberries
*The full printable recipe is at the bottom of this post.
First, I combined the oats, brown sugar, flour, one teaspoon of cinnamon, and nutmeg. Then, cut the room temperature butter into those ingredients with a pastry cutter or a fork although, a pastry cutter makes it easier to do.
Make sure the butter is well incorporated into the dry ingredients as shown below. As I mentioned, using a pastry cutter will make it easier to incorporate.
Second, prep the apples. If you have an apple corer, peeler, and slicer tool, it should make prepping much faster and easier. Peel and core the apples.
Then, thinly slice the apples and add the remaining one teaspoon of the cinnamon and the dried cranberries. Add more than 1/4 c. of cranberries if you like. This is your party! Mix until the apples are well coated with cinnamon. Kinda like covering gray hair with color. Get each gray hair!
Then, I sprayed the bottom of a Loaded Slow Cooker Chili and it was the perfect Sunday family dinner.
