The holidays are over but if you still have apple pie filling and cranberries on hand, why not make a delicious dessert for an any night treat? Pair it with vanilla ice cream and serve warm.
I actually made several jars of this apple pie filling a few months ago, so I used it and some of my frozen cranberries to make this delicious crisp. I based this recipe on my Pear Peach Crisp, basically just using the topping batter and water instead of can juices.
This was absolutely scrumptious! I drizzled the sauce from the apple pie filling over the ice cream, so good!
- 1 21-ounce can of apple pie filling or homemade apple pie filling
- 1/2 cup halved fresh or frozen cranberries
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar, divided
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup fat free evaporated milk (can substitute regular milk)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon allspice
- 1 cup water
- Preheat oven to 350 F.
- Spread apple pie filling in the bottom of a 9 x 9 inch sprayed
- baking dish. Sprinkle cranberries on top fold in just a little to spread them around.
- Cream together butter and 1/4 cup of the sugar in your mixer until light and fluffy. Turn mixer down to low and add the flour, baking powder, salt and evaporated milk. Turn mixer up to medium and mix until well combined. Spread the batter over the fruit with a spoon.
- Whisk together remaining 3/4 cup of sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, cinnamon and allspice. Sprinkle sugar mixture over the batter on the fruit.
- Heat the water in the microwave until boiling then pour over the sugar mixture in the baking pan.
- Bake in preheated oven 55 to 60 minutes. Serve with vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.
