Whether it is Thanksgiving, Christmas or any event, enjoy an easy delicious and quick dessert, this amazing Apple Cranberry Crisp! #cranberryweek
As #cranberryweek continues, I planned out my recipes for the week! I have already shared Easy Cranberry Orange Muffins and Slow Cooker Cranberry Pot Roast. As the week continues, today is a favorite dessert of my families! Today, I share my Apple Cranberry Crisp! I make a mean, not really mean, but if I may say, a delicious Apple Pie! Not that I want Apple Pie to take over this post, but many who eat my pie, tell me they don’t have the time to make a pie crust! Yes,I still consider them friends…I love making pie crust…that is a whole different subject. This brings me back to this amazing Apple Cranberry Crisp! Fresh apples and cranberries make an amazing base for this crisp!
Making a crisp is super easy and when making any meal, a fruit crisp is always an easy dessert! When Thanksgiving and Christmas come around, this Apple Cranberry Crisp is a perfect dessert to serve or bring to a family or Friendsgiving event! You get all the fabulous flavors of an apple pie but with little work! A perfect dessert for any night but for the Holidays, fabulous! All those flavors without a lot of work!
Tips to make Apple Cranberry Crisp:
- cut the apples in 1 inch slices. This prevents mushy fruit as it cooks.
- You can swap out and use Gluten-free flour and the flavors are the same.
- Make ahead and cover with foil and serve the next day.
- You can use frozen cranberries in lieu of fresh with same results
I love that this crisp gives powerful flavors and I top with whip cream or vanilla ice cream and everyone is happy! So you don’t enjoy making pies and want the homemade feel, this is for you. You are a home cook and are over-burdebed with dishes, this is a quick fix homemade dessert that is always a crowd pleaser!
