Original recipe is a twist on my Mom’s version. Fast and easy dessert, great for fall season when apples are freshest and the cranberries come in. I have made it without the apples or using frozen cranberries. I enjoy it as a dessert and as a breakfast treat around the Thanks-Mas season. Loaded with antioxidants! I have also made a wheat-free version using nut flour. Serve plain or topped with ice cream, whipped cream, or a drizzle of heavy cream.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh cranberries
  • 2 apples, or more to taste, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ¼ cup walnuts
  • 1 ¼ cups white sugar, divided
  • ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup butter, melted

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Butter a 9x9-inch glass baking pan.
  2. 2 Mix cranberries, apples, raisins, and walnuts gently in the baking pan. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon.
  3. 3 Combine remaining sugar with flour, baking powder, salt, egg, and butter in a medium bowl. Mix until crumbly. Spread topping over the apple mixture.

  1. I thought this was delicious fresh out of the oven. I skipped the nuts and increased the 1/4 cup of sugar to 1/3 cup to help cut the tartness of the fresh cranberries.
  2. Overall this was very good. It was a little tart and I will increase the sugar next time. Based on what others said about the crust being cakey I eliminated the egg and increased the butter to 1/2 c cutting it into the other ingredients cold rather than melted. It turned out sweet golden and - Read more ...

  5. I loved it and plan to make it at Thanksgiving.
  6. The topping was certainly not "crumbly" - it baked up and tasted like a crisp cookie. Not at all what I expected or wanted. Filling was good. Update 11/13/18 - Add a star!
