This spiced cobbler with apples and cranberries is sure to please all of your holiday guests. It is perfect for fall but can be made year-round since it uses fresh or frozen cranberries. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas


  • 5 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 4 medium)
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1 cup packed dark brown sugar, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 can (15 ounces) pumpkin
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Chopped pecans, optional
  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream


  • 1. In a 4- or 5-qt. greased slow cooker, combine apples, cranberries, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon and vanilla.
  • 2. In a large bowl, cream butter and remaining 1/2 cup brown sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in pumpkin.
