Cranberry Apple Crisp

Apple cranberry crisp is a wonderful dessert for fall, when both cranberries and apples are in season. The fruits are quite compatible in flavor and color, and they help make any table look festive and inviting. —Martha Sue Stroud, Clarksville, Texas

      This is my go-to recipe for Apple-cranberry Crisp. Guests love it and go back for more. I sometimes vary the proportions of cranberries to apples depending on what I have but it always turns out great! I also use a stevia baking blend to lighten it up a bit.

      The worst thing I can say about this recipe is that is doesn't make enough! I love the juxtaposition of the apples and the cranberries, and the topping was excellent. My guests gobbled it up and there wasn't bite left. Next time I'm making it for a group, I'll double it.

      This recipe is the ultimate favorite at my work and at home. I use about 4 large granny smith apples and sprinkle on top with cinnamon. I did not make any other changes to it. I serve it warm with vanilla ice cream. Everyone always loved this desert and asked for a recipe.

      made a few modifications - whole rolled oats in topping; 12 oz bag of cranberries, 2 large granny smiths, some orange zest and 1/2 tsp cinnamon in filling. Baked in 8x8 square pan. Truly one of the best crisps i have ever made!
