Apple Cranberry Crumble

Delicious, comforting and perfect for your Holiday table! Apples and cranberries topped with oats, nuts and a little brown sugar are baked in the oven and served warm. Now this is my kind of comfort food!

This was a makeover request I was HAPPY to tackle. I was asked to lighten up a Christmas must-have for her table, perfect for dessert, but she also serves this for breakfast table.

We taste tested both her original recipe and this lightened up version and we know she will be pleased with the new results!

To serve a large crowd, simply double the recipe and use a larger baking dish. You can easily make this ahead, then reheat when you are ready to serve.
