This recipe looks great and I look forward to serving it during our Christmas family dinner. It is a little different from the apple crisps that I have served in the past. This one has cranberries in it for an extra tart kick, and maple syrup for sweetness. Give it a try.

Delicious Autumn Apple Crisp

  • ¾ cup plus ½ Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 stick cold butter, in chunks
  • ½ cup pecans, chopped (I will use walnuts instead)
  • 2 ½ lbs. apples, peeled
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup maple syrup

For the topping, put ¾ cup flour, sugar, oats, cinnamon, and butter in a food processor and pulse to form moist cluster. Mix in pecans, or walnuts.


Cut the apples into ½-inch chunks and put them in a buttered 9 ½-inch, 2-quart pie pan. Add cranberries, maple syrup, and ½ Tbsp flour; mix. Scatter on topping. Place pan on a parchment-lined baking sheet.

Bake at 375 degrees for 40 to 50 minutes. Serve warm, at room temperature, or chilled. This will serve approximately 10 people.
