8 cups peeled, cored and chopped apples
10 ounces cranberries, thawed and drained, or fresh if available
1/4 cup salted butter, cubed (1/2 stick)
1/2 cup Frontier Organic Cane Sugar
2 cups rolled oats (quick-cooking type)
2 cups all-purpose flour (or spelt flour)
1/2 teaspoon Frontier Organic Baking Powder
1 tablespoon Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
1 tablespoon Simply Organic Cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Simply Organic Allspice
1/2 teaspoon Simply Organic Nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon Frontier Sea Salt
1/3 cup maple syrup
1/2 cup reduced fat milk
1 pint heavy whipping cream
3/4 teaspoon Simply Organic Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
1/4 cup Frontier Organic Cane Sugar
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Round up some assistants and prepare tart apples such as Granny Smith, Cortland, or your family's favorite heirloom variety.
Thaw and drain frozen cranberries, or wash and pat dry fresh berries.
Toss cranberries and apples together into a 9x13-inch glass baking dish.
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, using a pastry cutter or two knives, blend together to resemble a coarse meal: Organic Valley Salted Butter, sugar, quick rolled oats, flour, baking powder, vanilla extract, spices, and sea salt.
Stir in maple syrup and milk.
The topping mixture will become somewhat sticky.
Drop the cobbler mixture by the spoonfuls onto the apple/cranberry compote and pat down slightly.
Sprinkle with sugar, if desired. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until apples are soft and topping has become golden.
Whip cream with cinnamon, vanilla, and sugar until stiff. Serve atop warm cobbler and melt into the "comfort zone."
