Made with apples, fresh cranberries and the most incredible streusel topping, this Apple-Cranberry Crisp makes the perfect comfort food for the holidays.


  • 6 large Granny Smith apples peeled, cored and sliced
  • 12 ounces fresh cranberries frozen will work too
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup white sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumb Topping


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Peel apples, core and slice apples into quarters and slice each quarter piece into three slivers.
  • In a large bowl add apple slices, cranberries lemon juice, cornstarch, brown sugar, white sugar, vanilla and cinnamon. Gently toss to combine. Pour apple-cranberry mixture into 12-inch round iron skillet or 2-quart baking dish and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine yellow cake mix, brown sugar, salt and baking powder. Stir to combine. Add butter, and using a pastry blender or a fork, cut butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Add crumb topping to evenly cover the apple-cranberry mixture. Set in the oven and bake for 35-45 minutes or until crumb topping is a nice golden brown and the juice from the apples and cranberries is bubbling.
  • Serve immediately or let it cool and serve later, it's great either way especially with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped topping.
