Apple, Cranberry & Almond Crisp

December 5, 2006

The Man’s boss came to dinner tonight. I was still feeling punky enough to not eat very much at all, The Man ate a huge lunch, even though he knew I was cooking, and the boss lady was ready to go back to the hotel by 7:15. So no one ate dessert. That’s okay – that means there’s more for me when I am feeling better!

I will give my recipe here, but know that since there hasn’t been a taste test yet, I can’t guarantee anything. I will come back and modify if something isn’t quite right when I eat it.
Apple, Cranberry & Almond Crisp
From my head and Gluten Free Girl
For the filling:
6 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced fairly think
1 to 1 1/2 cups fresh cranberries
1/4 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cornstarch
For the “crisp:”
See Shauna’s post here
To make:
Combine the apples, cranberries, sugar, cinnamon, and cornstarch. Stir gently so the apples don’t break apart. Pour into a greased 9×9 pan. Sprinkle the almonds on top.
Follow Shauna’s instructions to make the topping. Spread out over the top of the fruit and almonds.
Bake at 375 for 40 minute or until the top is golden brown and the fruit is bubbling through.
