Each year at Thanksgiving, we meet up with my Husbands family. In a legacy from his parents, three families gather in three condos, and after a day filled with activities or relaxation, we meet up for dinner, hosted by a different family each night.
This year we hosted a simple meal, and finished it off with this modest crumble. The buttery topping, and scattering of sugar and orange juice highlighting the freshness of the fruit.
CRANBERRY AND APPLE CRUMBLE
1 cup flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
10 tablespoons butter, softened, and cut into small pieces
5 cups apples, cut into cubes
1 1/4 cup fresh cranberries
1/3 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
Heat oven to 375F.
Combine flour, 1/2 cup sugar, brown sugar and butter in a bowl. Using fingers, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
Combine apples and cranberries in a large bowl. Combine juice, sugar and cornstarch, pour over apple mixture. Toss well, spoon into a baking dish, sprinkle flour mixture over the top.
Bake for 40 minutes, or until bubbly and golden brown.
