Looking for a festive dessert that you can show off to friends and family that won’t wreak havoc on your waistline? Look no further! This cranberry apple crisp is mostly fruit with just a little bit of sweetness and almond crumble on top. Just the way I like it! It’s super easy to assemble and will have your house smelling like the holidays. Get the recipe below!
It’s FINALLY starting to feel like fall around here. The temps are dropping, which means two things: I can bust out the furry slippers and I suddenly get in the mood to bake all day. Maybe it’s the fact that Thanksgiving is this coming week, or that the stores seemingly have skipped right over this beloved holiday and moved on to Christmas. Either way, I’ll take it!
This month’s Recipe Redux theme is Trimming the Table. The holiday making season is upon us. Time to pull out all the stops! Show us the healthy holiday dessert you will be sharing with family and friends this season.
Since I already shared my insanely delicious pumpkin pie bites with you guys, I thought I bust out the apples and cranberries, a fruit duo that screams holiday!
This was perfect timing because I had an apple cranberry crisp on the menu for my December cooking class that I needed to test out, and figured, why not share it here, too? I wish I could share all of the recipes we make in cooking class because they are all so good!
One of my favorite holiday desserts is apple pie, but I’m not really a baker, so a crumble is much more up my alley. It also allows for a lot more fruit with just a little bit of “crust” – just the way I like it!
The sweetness from the apples and the tartness from the cranberries are the perfect complement to each other in this dessert. The hint of orange gives this dish an unexpected twist and in my opinion, cranberry and orange go together like peanut butter and jelly, so you really can’t go wrong.
