Cran-Apple Crisp

Cranberries, walnuts, brown sugar and orange peel help give this apple-packed crowd-pleaser its rich flavor. After the first taste, guests will be asking for the recipe...and a second helping.


15 servings


8 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 5 large)
3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 to 2 teaspoons grated orange peel
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon cloves
5 tablespoons cold butter, cubed
1/3 cup quick-cooking oats


Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, combine the first six ingredients; toss to coat. Transfer to prepared pan.

For topping, in a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, whole wheat flour, milk powder, cinnamon and cloves. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in oats. Sprinkle over apples.

Bake, uncovered, for 40 to 45 minutes or until golden brown.
