Apple-Cranberry Crumble

Apple Cranberry Crumble Recipe

Honeycrisp apples have a firm texture that holds up well during baking; other excellent options include Macoun, Empire, or Fuji. Don’t substitute dried cranberries for fresh (or frozen) cranberries; they both add flavor and some juice. A mini-chopper makes quick work of chopping the cranberries.

Prep: 5min

Total: 50min


  • 1 1/2 pounds apples (about 3 medium), peeled and cored
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen (unthawed) cranberries, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Coarse salt
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) cold, diced unsalted butter, plus additional for dish
  • 1/2 cup pecan halves (2 ounces), coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
  • 3 tablespoons packed light-brown sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Quarter apples lengthwise, then thinly slice. Cranberries, granulated sugar, cinnamon, and a dash of salt are mixed together in a big bowl and stirred until well-coated.
  2. Butter an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish. Mix together the pecans, flour, oats, brown sugar, and a dash of salt in a bowl. Work butter into topping with your fingertips until it is crumbly and has pea-sized pieces.
  3. Spread apple mixture in prepared dish; sprinkle with topping. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until filling bubbles and topping is golden. Let cool slightly before serving.

What can I do with lots of fresh cranberries?

The 1861 publication of Mrs. Beeton’s Book of Household Management featured the British dessert apple crumble. Due to food rationing during World War II, it gained in popularity. Butter, flour, and brown sugar are rolled into breadcrumb-like crumbs for the crumble topping.

Is Apple Crumble British or American?

Add a tablespoon at a time more melted butter if you think your topping is still too dry and crumbly (even for a crumble). To absorb the extra butter if it seems too wet, add a little more flour.
