  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 Granny Smith Apple, peeled 1/4″ diced
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon orange zest

For Topping:
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons flour
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350⁰F. In a small saucepan, cook the cranberries in water over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When the berries begin to pop, add 1/4 cup sugar, apples, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon and orange zest. Let simmer over low heat for about 8–10 minutes or until slightly thickened.

In a small bowl, use a pastry cutter or fork to combine all topping ingredients until butter is thoroughly incorporated into the dry ingredients.
