Cranberry Apple Crisp

September 18, 2023
This recipe is a delicious variation of the traditional apple crisp. By adding cranberries, you can make a dessert that the whole family will love.






3 cups Cranberries fresh or frozen
2 cups chopped Apples i.e. Honey crisp (about 1 1/2 medium apples)
1 cup light Brown sugar packed
2 tablespoons All-purpose flour
1 teaspoon Baking Vanilla
1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger

3/4 cup All-purpose flour
1/2 cup light Brown sugar packed
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon ground Ginger
1 pinch Salt
8 tablespoons unsalted Butter cold, cut into cubes
1/2 cup rolled Oats regular, old-fashioned oatmeal


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F with a rack placed in the center of the oven. Lightly butter or grease a shallow baking dish (9" tart or pie pan or 8×8 brownie pan).
  2.  In a medium bowl, combine the apples, cranberries, sugar, flour, vanilla, and ginger, and toss to mix. Transfer to your prepared baking dish.
  3. Make the topping by combining flour, sugar, butter, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and salt with a pastry cutter, two forks, or your fingers until it looks like coarse crumbs. Add the oats and mix a little more, using your fingers to create chunks with the crumbs. Spread the topping evenly over the fruit and pat down gently with your fingertips.
  4. Bake until the topping is light brown and crisp, about 35-40 minutes, and the fruit is bubbling underneath. Serve warm with ice cream, cream, whipped cream, or as is.

Meet The Chef

At nine years old, Ben Gaffney asked if he could work alongside his father, a chef, at Congress Rotisserie in New Haven. The elder Gaffney put the boy to work washing dishes for two years, in the hope that it would discourage his interest in the restaurant business.

But a calling is a calling. Ben Gaffney has spent his life since then pursuing the wonders of food, bringing Middlefield along for the ride as chef at Lyman Orchards since 2017.
