Got leftover cranberry sauce? Make a Cranberry Apple Crisp
Posted Nov 27 2009 12:00am
I like spooning leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving on my plain, no fat yogurt in the morning. It’s good on plain oatmeal or Greek yogurt at breakfast time, too. Another way to get rid of it is to mix it with horseradish as a cocktail sauce for shrimp.
1 cup all-purpose or white whole wheat flour, (or 1 ¼ cups all-purpose gluten-free flour mix combined with ¼ tsp. xanthan gum)
1/8th tsp. salt
1 cup old-fashioned oats (or old-fashioned gluten-free oats, or quinoa flakes)
1/2-¾ cup non-hydrogenated margarine such as Earth Balance Natural Buttery Spread, (use ½ cup of margarine for a slightly drier crumb, ¾ cup for a more "buttery" crumb)
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease a 7 x 11-inch, or an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish.
Peel, core and slice apples into ¼-inch-thick slices. Toss with ½ tsp. of the cinnamon, ¼ cup of the brown sugar and the cornstarch. Transfer to baking dish.
Spread cranberry sauce evenly over top of apples.
Measure flour by spooning into a dry measuring cup, level with a straightedge or back of a knife, then pour into a mixing bowl.
Add salt, oats, the remaining ¾ cup of the brown sugar and the remaining ½ tsp. of cinnamon. Mix to combine.
Melt margarine (30-60 seconds in the microwave usually does it). Drizzle into the flour mixture a little at a time, tossing until you have a large crumb. Spread crumb evenly over top of fruit. Use your fingers to clump it together as necessary.
Bake 40 minutes until top is golden brown and filling is bubbling up around edges. Let rest about 30 minutes before serving.
