Individual Apple Cranberry Crisps

12 Dec

AppleCranberryCrisp-8

With all the cold, rainy weather we’re having lately I had a craving for a nice apple crisp of some kind. Cranberries sounded like a nice tart addition, so I decided on those as well. So I found a good basic recipe via Taste of Home, and tweaked it to be individual ramekins. Plus, I added vanilla, because… well, vanilla!

Start by slicing a bunch of apples and add in some cranberries.

Add in some sugar, flour, vanilla, and a bit of orange or lemon zest if you happen to have some laying around (I used orange).

Put into buttered ramekins, then top with a mixture of oats, flour, sugar, melted butter, and chopped nuts of really any kind. We used walnuts.
