Honeycrisp apples have a firm texture that holds up well during baking; Macoun, Empire, or Fuji are other good choices. Fresh (or frozen) cranberries contribute flavor as well as some juice; do not substitute dried cranberries. A mini-chopper makes quick work of chopping the cranberries.

why do you not have a "print" option so that it can be copies on a smaller scale?

This is the second year I tried this and it was much better. I left the skins on the apples (because I am lazy), and I topped the crumble with whipped cream. It was one of the best desserts I have ever made. Thank you!

This was excellent. I will say I used 1 1/2 cups cranberries, 2/3 cup white sugar, and 1 tsp. cinnamon - we really like cranberries!
