My Thanksgiving Dish for Every Eater
Cranapple Crisp; found it in one of my mom's cookbooks before I had my own apron. I've been lowkey customizing it every year as I become more conscious in the kitchen. I got us a little textual assist from @granolabitch to get going; tell me what you replace and how you replace it..! I'm thankful for this community.
- •3 cups of pared, diced applesI like organic pink apples but it's whatever you're into
- •2 cups of rinsed cranberriesGo for plump, shiny, and anywhere from bright light red to dark red. A fun sorting trick is that the good, ripe ones will bounce...
- •1 cup oats
- •1 cup of brown sugar
- •1 cup granulated sugar??Gina told me I could use organic cane sugar to get it close to the old recipe. But I took her suggestion to reduce the sugar altogether... See below
- •1/2 cup flour"You could use almond flour, buckwheat flour, a mixture... Or throw oats in a blender to make oat flour (in addition to whole oats it calls for)." For this, Gina and I went with coconut flour.
- •1/2 cup chopped pecans"Get the sprouted kind from the bulk section at Whole Foods... so much tastier and better for you!" You could also swap them for walnuts or whatever.
- •5 tbsp butter"I would do a high-quality grass fed butter; it's more pure." Kerrygold brand unsalted or Earth Balance if you don't mess with dairy
- •1 tbsp cinnamon
- •Toss apples, cranberries, and sugar* in an ungreased baking dishGuys I literally just used sweeter apples and confettied coconut sugar onto the fruit party and worked around white sugar entirely. Spoiler alert: it is delicious. Easier to eat
- •Mix the oats, flour, sugar, cinnamon and nut mixture into melted butterDrizzle that crumble on the fruit party
- •Cook for an hour on 450until it's toasty and bubbly and beautiful
- •Serve it warmwith coffee, or ice cream, or whiskey, with the pies, or as a side dish on the table. then cold the next morning with breakfast turkey or whatever
- •Gina didn't approve that post
- •HAPPY THANKSGIVINGHow fire is the phrase fruit party
