Family Night Treat

Cranberry-Orange Apple Crisp
Cooking Light, OCTOBER 2000

My notes: We loved the topping on this crisp. It would lend itself well to any combination of fruit. I would love to try it with a pineapple, mango, papaya blend. Easy Family Night treat that my 14 yr old son did by himself.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cornmeal
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1/4 cup chilled butter or stick margarine, cut into small pieces
7 cups diced peeled Rome apple (about 3 pounds)
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
3 tablespoons orange juice

Preheat oven to 375°.Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, cornmeal, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, and brown sugar in a bowl; cut in butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture is crumbly.

Combine apple and remaining ingredients in a large bowl; toss well. Spoon the apple mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish or 1 1/2-quart casserole. Sprinkle with the crumb mixture. Bake at 375° for 45 minutes or until golden brown.
