Fortune cookie apple crumble and where is the snow?

Have you ever visited a fortune teller? What was it like? Did they have the glass orb or tarot cards or read your palms?

In the spirit of the carnival, I've always been curious to visit a fortune teller's tent. I imagine it is like walking into an interactive theatrical play. However, the prices always hold me back.

The next closest thing would be to read my fortune in cookie form. A friendly waitress gave us about two large handfuls of fortune cookies so as a tribute to her and to these crunchy things, here is an apple fortune cookie crumble!

3 small Gala apples, sliced thinly
Handful of dried cranberries
Juice of half lemon (about 2 Tbsp)
1 tsp cinnamon
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch
12 finely crushed fortune cookies
1 tsp cinnamon
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp brown sugar
2 - 3 Tbsp melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 F.

Toss together apple slices and cranberries with lemon, cinnamon, sugar, cornstarch mix. Layer into baking dish about 8" x 5" x 1.5" size.

Combine all crumble ingredients together and mix roughly. It should have a crumbly consistency, if not, add a bit more flour or melted butter to achieve this.

Top apples with crumble and bake covered for about 40 mins. Remove cover and continue baking for 10 - 15 mins until browned slightly. 

Let cool for about 5 mins and serve warm!
