Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup fruity white wine, such as Riesling or Gewürztraminer, heated until steaming
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Topping

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Filling

  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 medium apples, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 4 medium pears, quartered and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

 

Preparation

  1. Pour Riesling over cranberries in a small bowl; let soak for at least 1 hour or overnight before you make the filling.
  2. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  3. To prepare topping: Place flour in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs with a few larger pieces. Stir in oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, oil, salt and cinnamon until well combined. Refrigerate while you prepare the filling.
  4. To prepare filling: Cook 3/4 cup brown sugar and butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted and the mixture resembles wet sand. Add apples, pears, salt and the soaked cranberries plus wine. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until the fruit begins to soften, about 5 minutes. Transfer to a 3-quart glass or ceramic baking dish. Sprinkle with the topping.
  5. Bake until the filling is bubbling and topping is browned, about 1 hour. Let stand at least 15 minutes before serving.

About FitFreek202

Hi, thanks for stopping by at my website. This is my journey to achieve 202 pounds of lean body mass and 15% Body Fat. Let me explain. Weighing yourself with traditional scales is very important, but you also need to measure your body fat as well. You could go to the gym and weigh yourself before and after a long run. The second weigh in, you may well have lost two pounds – that is water from sweat, not body fat. So, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 36 pounds of fat – a total of 238 pounds. When i’m there, my goal is to be 202 pounds LBM and 22 pounds of fat – a total of 224 pounds. This blog will chart my progress.
