This dessert can be assembled easily and cooked with a minimum of attention—you can prepare all the rest of your evening meal while it bakes. From the time my mother taught me to cook, I've loved to bake. Desserts are a special favorite of mine, and I clip out and save more dessert recipes than any other kind. Discovering a great new recipe brings such joy. That's what keeps me cooking!

"This is a favorite dessert to make in the fall. I like the fact that the apples need not be peeled. The cranberries give the apples a beautiful color and flavor. I usually use only 1/4 cup butter and 1/3 cup brown sugar in the topping. Sometimes I substitute canola oil for the butter."
