Recipe, food styling, and photography by Eat Nantucket
3 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into 1/4 inch slices
1 heaping cup of fresh cranberries (or thawed from frozen)
1/4 cup sugar
juice of 1/2 lemon
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
pinch of coarse salt
1 stick of unsalted butter
5.3 oz Crème Fraîche
- Preheat oven to 350F.Place apples and cranberries in a large mixing bowl and toss with sugar and lemon juice. Pour into a lightly greased 9 x 13-inch baking dish, spreading evenly.
- In another large bowl, mix together flour, oats, light brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
- Cut stick of butter into even cubes. Using a pastry cutter or fingers, gently work the butter into the dry ingredients until pea-sized lumps are formed and the ingredients are evenly distributed.
- Top apples and cranberries evenly with mixture and bake until apples are bubbly and topping is golden brown, about 50-60 minutes, rotating once halfway through cooking.
- Serve warm or room temperature topped with Cowgirl Creamery Crème Fraîche.
Adding Crème Fraîche to the warm crumble results in a luxuriously creamy sauce, while adding it at room temperature provides a textured pop of bright, decadent flavor–a serious upgrade from whipped cream.
