Cranberry and Apple Crumble

Cranberry and Apple Crumble
(from Family Fun magazine)

1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. plus 2 T. sugar
1/4 c. brown sugar
6 cups peeled and sliced (about 1/2 inch thick) apples (braeburn or granny smith work well)
1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/3 c. orange juice
1 T. cornstarch

Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Combine the flour, 1/4 cup of the sugar the brown sugar, and the butter in a bowl.  Mix the ingredients with your fingertips to create pea-sized crumbs.  
Combine the apple slices and cranberries in a large bowl.  Mix the juice, remaining 2 T. of sugar, and cornstarch in a small bowl.  Pour the mixture over the fruit and toss well.
Spoon the fruit into a 2 qt. baking dish and sprinkle the flour mixture on top.  Bake the crumble until bubbly and golden brown, about 40 minutes.  Serves 6 to 8.

I love the tart cranberry addition to this apple dessert!  I've really enjoyed the cranberry desserts I've found this winter.  This dessert goes great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, of course!
