Reviews for Tart Cranberry Apple Crisp
"My husband and I loved this recipe. I too omitted the wheat bran (didn't have any), used some fresh cranberries in addition to cranberry sance called for. I left the peel on the apples but next time I would peel the apples. It's wonderful and very easy. Can't wait to make it again!"
"This was very tasty. Next time I would peel the apples. Served to company and they really liked it and asked for the recipe. I used Golden Delicious apples and doubled the topping. This is going into the recipe box. I also served it with vanilla ice cream. Easy to do. I would have given five stars but didn't care for the apple peels."
"Very good dessert. I used Cool Whip for the topping. I will definitely make this again."
"Recipe was very tasty. I used brown sugar substitute in the crumb topping since there is a diabetic in my household. I would definitely peel the apples next time."
"Thought this was a great recipe. Loved the tart taste of cranberries and the sweeter taste of the apples. Will definitely make again."
"Excellent recipe. Everyone loved it! I omitted the wheat bran as I did not have it on hand."
"RE: grams of sugar... A lesson from my son who has Type 1 diabetes: the carb count is more important than a separate sugar count since sugar accounts for most if not all of, the carbs."
"We need to know how many gram of suger, on a diet and needed to know. Thanks"
"Exceptional. I doubled the crust and added nutmeg and allspice."
"Love it!!! It is so simple to make and tastes so good. It is tart and not too sweet. Everyone that tastes it wants the recipe. The only thing I changed was I used Splenda brown sugar and added chopped pecans in the topping."
"A friend gave me some Wealthy apples from her trees and I used my own cranberry sauce. The tartness of the apples and the cranberries made such a great dessert. My neice likes apple crisp, so I pass the recipe on to her."
"This appple crisp was very tasty with the addition of the cranberries. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out very nice. The topping was a little drier than I am used to on crisps but the reduced calories were worth it."
"I made this recipe with apples from my friends tree and frozen cranberries. It was delicious! We ate our first pieces hot from the oven and will be making it again and again. I too am considering making this for Thanksgiving dessert."
"I made this for Sunday dinner and my granddaughter has requested it for Thanksgiving instead of the traditional pumpkin pie. Everyone loved it and I will be making lots of it in the coming months.Eleanor DeBresseerChatham, ONCanada"
"I took to a Sr.Citizens luncheon and they all loved it. I doubled it and all was gone. thank you"
"Wonderful and easy to make."
"I saw and read the recipe for ingredients. Since I am diabetic I had to alter the recipe. Instead of using 5 apples of one variety I bought and used three different varieties. Next I got rid of the canned cranberries and went with a 1Lb package of whole uncooked cranberries. For Sweetner in the mix I used Splenda, 2 TBSP Splenda for Baking, and I replaced the Brn Sugar with Splenda Brn Sugar. I served it to relatives who did not know the Spolenda was in it and got Rave Results from them. I have to admit it was very good, especially with the frozen yogurt topping. Great Dessert. For the cranberies I just washed, rinsed, dried them on a paper towel and stirred them in and baked them in the mixture. Result was a sweet taste but natural. I made it again the second time was in a small crockpot. After mixing everything together as the recipe called for I put it in the crockpot on low for 4 hrs and it turned out even better with a better flavor. Next day I ate some of the leftovers, cold and they were also very good. Good Comfort Food."
"You will LOVE this recipe!! Our fave!!"
"I have made this many times, wasn't sure about leaving the peelings on the apples, but they are very good , wouldn't change a thing ."
"I have made this recipe several times now because it is so delicious! Everyone who has tried it has asked for the recipe."
"We really liked this. Cranberries and apple make a great combo. I didnt have any wheat bran so I added toasted wheat germ. Very yummy."
