Crockpot Cranberry and Apple Crisp

I've been craving a crisp of some sort for the past week or so. I pulled out the cookbook The Cranberry Homemakers Cookbook that I picked up in Boulder Junction awhile back and found this recipe for Crockpot Cranberry and Apple Crisp.

Cranberry & Apple Crisp

I did make a few changes to the recipe. Instead of brown sugar, I used Sugar Twin brown sugar since there are no calories. I couldn't find fresh cranberries at the store and the frozen bag of them was ridiculously large, so I just picked up a can of whole berry cranberry sauce. The outcome was good. It could have been a little thicker and I just wonder if it would have been if I could have used fresh cranberries. Hopefully next time.

Here's the ingredients and directions:

3 Gala Apples
1 cup cranberries
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)
1/4 tsp salt (I never add to anything I make)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/3 cup butter (softened) - I used a light butter

Peel, core and slice apples. Place apple slices and cranberries in crock pot. Mix remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and sprinkle over top of apple and cranberries. Place 4 or 5 paper towels over the top of the crock pot, place an object (I used a wooden spoon) across the top of the crock pot and set lid on top. This allows the steam to escape. Turn crock pot on High and cook for about 2 hours. Serves 4.
