Cranberry Apple Granola Walnut Cobbler

A walnut crust with a cranberry apple filling and a granola topping.


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat a 2-quart casserole dish with baking spray.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the walnuts, 3 tablespoons butter and 3 tablespoons sugar until finely crumbled.
  3. Press crumbs into the bottom of the casserole dish. Bake for 8 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan, bring the cranberries, apples, lemon zest, water, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and 2/3 cup sugar to a boil. Simmer 8 minutes. Pour over the walnut crust.
  5. In a medium bowl, combine the granola, 1/4 cup butter and 2 tablespoons sugar. Sprinkle evenly over the apple layer. Press down gently with a spatula.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes. Allow to rest 20 minutes. Serve warm.

Tip: Make it à la mode and top each cobbler serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
