Keep it Fresh - Anna's Apple Cranberry Crisp

(Image from Indigo ; Anna & KJ at the Fresh book signing)
Last night we ordered pizza.  It was one of those frantic Wednesdays.

Afterwards, we made up for it by making Anna Olson's apple-cranberry crisp. So easy. 

The kids love apples.  I took this shot on our apple picking adventure this past fall.

Anna's crisp recipe which was republished here is below

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup rolled oats

1/2 cup dark brown sugar, packed

1 tsp ground cinnamon

dash salt

5 tbsp unsalted butter, room temperature

1/2 cup chopped pecans

4 x Mutsu or Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch dice

1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries

1/3 cup sugar

zest and juice of 1 small orange
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Grease an 8-inch square baking dish or 6 5-ounce ramekins.

For topping, combine flour, oats, sugar, cinnamon, salt and butter in a bowl. Work together with fingertips until crumbly. Stir in nuts and set aside.

Toss the apples and cranberries with sugar, orange zest and juice. Spoon into prepared baking dish(es). Sprinkle topping evenly over the fruit. Bake until bubbly and apples are tender, about 30 minutes. Let cool slightly. Serve warm, topped with ice cream or cream, if desired.
Here's our visual recap

Enjoy! Anna recommends leftovers for breakfast....
