We used a mixture of large golden delicious apples and Granny Smith apples, and five apples was more than enough. 

This delicious crisp is the perfect dessert for a crisp fall day. A little ground cinnamon spices the topping, and pecans add crunch.


  • For the Filling:
  • 6 tart apples (peeled, cored, and thinly sliced; 5 if the apples are large)
  • 1 1/4 cups cranberries (chopped; about 1 1/2 cups whole cranberries)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • For the Topping:
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats (quick or regular)
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar (firmly packed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tablespoons butter (cold and cut into small pieces)
  • 1/2 cup pecans (chopped)

Steps to Make It

  1. Heat the oven to 375 F.

  2. Combine the sliced apples, cranberries, and 2/3 cup of granulated sugar; turn into a lightly buttered 11x7x2-inch baking dish.

  3. In a mixing bowl, combine oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and flour. ​Cut in cold butter until coarse crumbs form. Stir in chopped pecans.

  4. Sprinkle the crumb mixture evenly over fruit and press down lightly.

  5. Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until topping is browned and fruit is tender and bubbly.

  6. Serve with a generous spoonful of whipped cream or a scoop of ice cream.
