Autumn means falling leaves and falling temperatures. It’s also apple-picking season. If you have an overabundance of apples (and who doesn’t this time of year?), here’s a quick recipe that works well with oatmeal for breakfast, with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for dessert, or just by itself as a yummy treat.

Apple Cranberry Crumble

2-3 lg. Granny Smith apples
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
2 T. unsweetened butter

Peel and core apples. Dice into bite-size pieces. Place in bowl. Add cranberries. Reserve 1/8 cup brown sugar. Toss the apples and cranberries with remaining brown sugar and cinnamon. Divide mixture evenly into two greased ramekins.

Pulse the butter, walnuts, and remaining brown sugar in food processor. Fold into fruit.

Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
