  • Apple-Cranberry Almond Bake by Vernalisa

    I love almond paste desserts this one is TNT

    SOURCE*Odense Almond Paste
    Grated almond paste gives a convenient baking mix a homemade taste. This easy to prepare recipe feeds 8-10 hungry apple lovers, with all the mouth-watering flavors of fall.

    Apple-Cranberry Almond Bake

    3 Tbsp melted butter
    1 box (7 oz) Odense Almond Paste, grated
    1 & 1/4 cups all-purpose baking flour *see note below
    1/4 cup plus 2 Tbsp sugar
    1/2 cup dried, sweetened cranberries
    1 tsp apple pie spice, divided
    Juice of one lemon
    4-5 small Granny Smith apples, approx. the same size
    1/4 cup milk
    Optional: vanilla ice cream or whipped cream

    *NOTE We used Bisquick in our recipe.

    1 Preheat oven to 400. Brush a 9x13 inch baking pan with 1 Tbsp of the butter.

    2 In a large bowl add: grated almond paste, baking mix flour, 1/4 cup of the sugar, cranberries, and 1/2 tsp of the apple pie spice. Mix with fingertips to incorporate ingredients and break up any large size pieces of almond paste.

    3 In a small bowl mix the remaining sugar with the last 1/2 teaspoon of apple pie spice. Set aside.

    4 Mix lemon juice with 3 Tbsp water in a medium bowl. Peel apples and slice in half (just either side of core). This will give you 8 or 10 halves and four or five thin center cores (with apple on either side).

    5 Carefully cut each half almost through (but not quite), spacing cuts about 1/4 inch apart. Add cut apple halves to lemon juice and toss to coat. Set aside.

    6 Grate remaining apple from center core slices. Discard core and add grated apple to almond/flour mixture. Toss to combine. Add milk and mix until moistened.

    7 Spoon batter evenly into pan. Press apples through dough into bottom of pan, making 2 lines of apples. You may only be able to fit 8 halves if apples are too large. Gently press batter back around edges of apples.

    8 Bake for 25 minutes or until dough is golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and serve warm. Top with vanilla ice cream if desired, or whipped cream.
