I made today's crumble from what I had on hand: apples which we have picked up in an orchard earlier this month, fresh cranberries, and little bit of freshly squeezed orange juice (orange juice goes so well with cranberries!!!). I covered it with delicious topping made with my favorite nuts- pistachios.
The crumble turned out perfect, not too sweet, not too acid, exactly how I like it. I usually don't follow any proportions when making desserts like this, but this time I have written down the exact amounts of all the ingredients to share the recipe with you and also, to be able to make it exactly the same again. Hope you'll enjoy it!!!
