Ingredients

Filling

  • 6 large tart apples peeled, cored and diced
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 cup cranberries fresh or frozen

Crumble Topping:

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsps ground cinnamon
  • 6 tbsps Earth Balance margarine cut into pieces (or regular butter)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar I made my own using white sugar and blackstrap molasses

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  • Wash the cranberries (if using fresh) and eliminate any bruised or mushy ones.
  • In a medium sized saucepan, cook the apples, sugar and cinnamon over medium heat until the apples begin to soften (approximately 10 minutes).
  • Combine the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and Earth Balance margarine (or butter) in a bowl. Blend with your fingertips until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  • Fold the cranberries into the apple filling.
  • Spoon the apple filling into a deep baking dish or pie plate. Top with the crumble mix.
  • Bake for about 30-45 minutes, until topping looks crunchy. You want the fruit to start to bubble. If the topping starts to brown too much, cover with foil until complete. *Bake with foil under the baking dish to catch any spills. Take care when removing from the oven as the fruit will bubble and will be very hot.
