Allspice brings out the best in baked apples and cranberries in this delectable crisp recipe.



    5 medium-sized apples (any mild, sweet baking variety), cored, sliced (and peeled, if desired)

    1 cup cranberries, fresh or frozen (if frozen, do not defrost)

    3 tablespoons honey, divided

    1 tablespoon orange juice

    1 tablespoon orange zest

    1/3 cup + 3 tablespoons all-purpose or wheat flour, divided

    1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats (not steel cut)

    1/2 cup brown sugar

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Allspice, plus more for serving

    1/2 teaspoon Simply Organic Ceylon Cinnamon

    6 tablespoons butter, cold and cubed


    1 cup heavy cream

    2 to 3 tablespoons honey or maple syrup 

    1 teaspoon Simply Organic Pure Vanilla Extract


    To Make the Crisp:

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    2. In a 9x13-inch baking dish, combine apples and cranberries. Add honey, orange juice and orange zest. Gently toss until well combined. 
    3. Sprinkle 3 tablespoons flour over the fruit and gently toss until evenly coated.
    4. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together oats, remaining 1/3 cup flour, brown sugar, allspice and cinnamon. Using your hands or a pastry cutter, crumble butter into oat mixture, until it becomes coarse and dough-like.
    5. Evenly cover fruit with oat mixture. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until apples are soft and juicy, and topping is light brown and crispy.

    To Make the Whipped Cream:

    1. In a small mixing bowl, combine cream, honey or maple syrup and vanilla. Whip until frothy.
    2. Serve the crisp hot with whipped cream and a few sprinkles of allspice on top.

    Recipe Tip:

    For a vegan-friendly crisp, substitute maple syrup for the honey and coconut oil for the butter.

    For a more "rustic" topping, substitute whole wheat flour for the all-purpose flour.
