Cranberry-Almond Crisp

Cranberry-Almond Crisp 2.000

Deb Lindsey for The Washington Post

Nov 21, 2010

This is a nice and easy way to end a Thanksgiving meal for two, and it fulfills any craving for cranberries that was unmet by the main course and sides.


Servings: 2 generous servings
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup blanched, slivered almonds
  • 6 tablespoons cool unsalted butter
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries, picked over, washed and dried
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Fat pinch sea salt
  • Whipped cream, for serving (optional)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 300 degrees.

Spread the almonds in a baking dish. Toast for about 10 minutes, until crisp and very lightly browned. Let cool, then coarsely chop.

Increase the oven temperature to 375 degrees. Use 1 tablespoon of the butter to grease the bottom and sides of a 9-inch ovenproof skillet.

Combine the cranberries, ginger and granulated sugar in a bowl and toss to mix. Distribute evenly in the bottom of the skillet.

Cut the remaining 5 tablespoons of butter into small pieces. Combine them with the flour, brown sugar, almonds, cinnamon, cloves and salt in a medium bowl; mix thoroughly, then crumble evenly over the cranberries. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until the topping is crisp and the cranberries have softened; some will have burst.

Serve warm or at room temperature, with whipped cream, if desired.
