From the author: It’s autumn, so apple crisp is a mandatory dish for me … at least once a week. This is a quick and easy one to prepare, and after an hour in the oven, you have not only made a tasty dessert, but you also filled your home with a great aroma. Feel free to use your favorite apple – I really like tart apples and almost always use Granny Smiths. I also like to mix in the cranberries, but you could substitute in raisins, pears, or other fall fruits.

From Plant-Based on a Budget: When I think of all the cozy things the fall and winter season brings, this Apple Cranberry Crisp always pops up. A bubbly, sweet, and buttery apple crisp is such a comforting dessert and always a crowd-pleaser. It’s the simplest and most delicious treat you can make with very few ingredients.

As Easy As it Gets

This Apple Cranberry Crisp is as easy as it gets! No “hard to get” and expensive ingredients, and no fancy baking equipment. Most ingredients you probably have in your pantry and they are very inexpensive. Loving this recipe already? It is the perfect starting dessert recipe for a cooking beginner and it is a great opportunity to include the kids in the process.

Pick Your Fruits

This recipe calls for apples and cranberries but the truth is you can do it with many different ones. Stone fruit is always good to use in crips or crumbles, like peaches, or apricots. Also, pears, blueberries, and raspberries would go really well.

If you don’t like your desserts super sweet, then this Apple Cranberry Crisp would be a perfect match since the tartness of the cranberries creates more balance.
