Servings 8 people



  • 4 medium apples about 1 1/2 pounds
  • 1 12 ounce bag cranberries fresh or frozen
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Crumble Top

  • 1 1/2 sticks butter, softened 12 tablespoons
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans


To Make The Filling:

  • Peel and slice apples into 1/2 thick pieces. Place in a large mixing bowl and add lemon juice to the bowl.
  • Add in cranberries.
  • Add in brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon. Stir to combine.
  • Allow mixture to sit for 20 minutes to juice the apples.
  • Add in the cornstarch and stir to combine.
  • Place mixture in a 9x9 cake pan. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.

To Make The Crumble Top:

  • In a large mixing bowl, stir together flour, sugar, oats, and pecans.
  • One tablespoon at a time, mix in softened butter. It's helpful to use a fork or your clean hands to mix everything together. You want the butter to coat the rest of the ingredients. It is thoroughly mixed when the mixture is in pea sized "crumbles"
  • Sprinkle crumble over fruit mixture, covering it completely.
  • Bake at 400 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Place a cookie sheet under your pan to catch drips in case the crumble boils over. You know it's done when you stab an apple and it's soft all the way through. If your top starts to get too dark before the apples are done, cover with aluminum foil
  • Allow to cool completely and enjoy!
