Cranberry & Apple Crisp with a Sweet Potato Biscuit Crumble


    - 1 Mama’s Butter Pie Crust (recipe linked in blog post) or your favorite store-bought pie crust - 2 pounds apples, cored and peeled - 1 cup fresh cranberries - ½ cup orange juice - 2 tablespoon melted butter, divided - 1 tablespoon brown sugar - 1 tablespoon white sugar - 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon - 1 teaspoon vanilla - For the Crumble Topping: - 3 Callie’s Sweet Potato Biscuits, crumbled - ¼ cup Callie’s Pecans - 1 tablespoon brown sugar - ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon - 3 tablespoons butter


    1. Preheat oven to 350°F. 1. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a 10-inch cast iron skillet. Set aside to cool. 1. In a large bowl, add the apples, cranberries, orange juice, sugars, vanilla and cinnamon. Let sit for 30 minutes. 1. Roll out the pie crust into a 13- inch round and place in the skillet. You can also make a free form tart on a baking sheet. 1. After the apples and cranberries have macerated for 30 minutes, lay them on the crust. Leaving enough space around the edges to fold the dough up and over the apples by ½ to 1 inch. 1. Prepare the crumb topping by adding all ingredients to a small bowl and mix with your fingers until the mixture comes together in pea-size crumbs. Sprinkle over the apples and cranberries. Fold the dough up and over the apples for a rustic look, pleating as necessary. 1. Brush the remaining 1 tablespoon of melted butter over the exposed dough. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until the apples and cranberries, crumb topping and pastry are all browned. 1. Serve with ice cream or room temperature. And enjoy!
