Cranberry Apple Squares

  • This is a lovely new addition to your baking. It is a combination of tart and sweet and is even better served warm with ice cream.

You will need:

  • 1 granny smith apple
  • 1/2 cup cranberry whole berry sauce (homemade is always best)
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 3/4 cup rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup each of dark brown sugar and white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup butter

Preparation: preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 8 inch square baking pan. Peel, core and thinly slice apple. Place in a bowl, cranberry sauce, berries and lemon juice. Mix together.

In a small bowl, mix the flour, sugars, baking soda, nutmeg and salt together. Add the butter and mix with your hands until crumbly. Press half the oat mixture on the bottom, spoon fruit on top evenly. Top with remaining oat mixture pressing lightly. This will not completely cover the pan so don’t worry.

Bake until the top is golden brown which will take approximately 40-45 minutes. Cool completely before cutting, and then store in fridge.
