This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


2 pounds of apples (your favorite variety will do)
peeled, cored and thinly sliced*
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (optional)
2/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup oat bran
1/2 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) cold butter, cut into small pieces


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F convection or 350 degrees F standard.
Arrange a single layer of sliced apples in a buttered 9×12 casserole pan. Mix cheese, cranberries and nutmeg together and sprinkle across the apples and then top cheese layer with another layer of apples. Now, sprinkle the lemon juice over the entire dish.
Mix the brown sugar, vanilla, oat bran, and salt. Cut in the butter until the mixture looks like coarse oatmeal. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the apples.
If you oven cooks fast then cover the dish with aluminum foil, otherwise place into the center of the oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until the apples are crisp tender and the top is lightly browned. If you choose to start by baking the dish covered remove the foil during the last 15 minutes of baking to facilitate even browning.




This dish is a variation of a classic Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board recipe, which has been tweaked to include the local apples. If you’ve canned your apples from the fall harvest they will work just as well as fresh, just be sure to drain the juice as you begin your mise en place.
