Chipper Snacks: Cranberry Apple Crisp

“Let us be up and doing with a heart for any fate.”

~ Henry Wadoworth Longfellow

A whiff of woodsmoke on the wind, the first chill in the air, the woods just edged in gold. Without looking at the calendar we know we’ve turned the page and it’s Fall! Time to put the “SWEET” in Home Sweet Home and make a tasty snack for you and the kids to enjoy on a lovely Fall day after school or dinner.

Cranberry Apple Crisp

375˚ ~ Serves 6

• 4 large Green Apples, peeled and sliced 1/2″

• 1 cup fresh Cranberries

• 3/4 cup Brown Sugar, firmly packed

• 1/2 cup Flour

• 1/2 cup Oats

• 3/4 tsp. Cinnamon

• 3/4 tsp. Nutmeg

• 1/3 cup softened Butter

Preheat oven to 375˚ then butter a square baking pan. Place apple slices and cranberries in the pan. Mix remaining ingredients well and sprinkle over fruit. Bake for 30 min. Serve hot with ice cream or cold with whipped cream.

There’s nothing like running home from school on a crisp clear day, crunching as many leaves as possible with your shoes on the way, coming in the door, breathless and pink cheeked, slamming the books down and finding mom in the kitchen pulling a pan of apple crisp from the oven… Smells like, looks like, and tastes like love to me!
