Apple Cranberry Crumble

Gotta love this Fall recipe!!! Apple based, easy to make and delicious!

Apple Cranberry Crumble
Servings: 8 portions

  • 3 pounds apples such as Golden Delicious, Gala, Winesap, or Mutsu, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch chunks

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup

  • 1/3 cup cranberries

  • 1 tablespoon corn starch
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the Topping:

  • 11/2 cup unbleached flour
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup natural brown sugar 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
8 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or vegetable oil

Set the oven to 375. In a large bowl, add the apples, maple syrup, cranberries, corn starch, lemon zest, and cinnamon and toss well. Transfer to 1 or 2 pie dishes.
To make the topping: Combine the flour, almonds, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt and mix well with a whisk. Add the butter and toss with your fingertips to form a crumbly topping. Spread over the apples and cover with foil.
Bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil and bake at 350 for another 20-30 minutes until the apples are bubbling and the topping is nicely browned. Remove the crumble from the oven and allow it to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
