3 pounds apples such as Golden Delicious, Gala, Winesap, or Mutsu, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2 inch chunks
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/3 cup cranberries
1 tablespoon arrowroot powder or corn starch
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For the Topping:
11/2 cup unbleached flour
3/4 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup natural brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch salt
8 tablespoons melted unsalted butter or vegetable oil

1. Set the oven to 375. In a large bowl, add the apples, maple syrup, cranberries, arrowroot, lemon zest, and cinnamon and toss well. Transfer to 1 or 2 pie dishes.

2. To make the topping: Combine the flour, almonds, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt and mix well with a whisk. Add the butter and toss with your fingertips to form a crumbly topping. Spread over the apples and cover with foil.

3. Bake for 30 minutes then remove the foil and bake at 350 for another 20-30 minutes until the apples are bubbling and the topping is nicely browned. Remove the crumble from the oven and allow it to cool for 20 minutes before slicing.
