A dollop of sweet, fat-free frozen yogurt tames the tartness of juicy cranberries in this treasured crisp recipe from Ruth Fox’s Elmhurst, Illinois kitchen. “I don’t recall just where I found it,” she says, “but it’s been a family favorite for at least 20 years.”
For simple variations, you could also substitute apples for the pears and blueberries or strawberries for the tangy cranberries in this versatile recipe.
"My mother was a great cook who loved to entertain. This warm and comforting crisp was one of her favorite recipes," says Mary Bachman Foltz of Wolcottville, Indiana. with a buttery golden topping, it's an irresistible ending to a holiday dinner or informal gathering.
This recipe is the ultimate comfort food and feels like home to me. The crunchy almond topping over the warm cinnamony apple filling is wonderful served with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.—Tammy Rex, New Tripoli, Pennsylvania
