  • In a large bowl, toss the apples with the sugar and lemon juice. Add the dried cranberries, apple juice and melted butter and toss again. Spread the filling in a 9-by-13-inch baking dish.

  • Sprinkle the topping evenly over the apples. Bake in the upper third of the oven for about 55 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the filling is bubbling. Let the crisp cool slightly and serve.

Notes

The crisp can stand at room temperature for several hours. Serve at room temperature or rewarm in a 350° oven.

Serve With

Unsweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
