A great combination of apples and cranberries with a crispy topping. A favorite at Thanksgiving instead of plain cranberries.

It really annoys me when people say a recipe is great but then go on to say how changed half the recipe. I want to read reviews of what the recipes is like as is not after people change a majority of the ingredients. Sorry, rant over. I enjoyed this recipe. I made it to take to work and even people who don't eat cranberries were eating it. Great recipe, and yes this is a 'as is' review. Read More

This recipe was not a favorite with my family when I tried it. The whole berry cranberry sauce is very tart and the shortening gave it a heavy almost greasy undertaste. If I make this again I would use butter instead of shortening and maybe only half the amount of cranberry sauce. Read More

this tasted really very good not too sweet and not too tart. it might bee a good idea to (very) coursely chop the cranberries first a whole cranberry can be very tart if you bite into too many in one mouthfull but definitely a keeper! Read More

I used 2 Fuji apples and 3 Granny Smith for this recipe. I think it was a good idea to add some sweet apples in there because otherwise it would be quite tart. I also used unsalted butter for the topping. It is a very good crisp though and super easy to make. Read More

Very good crisp! I used butter instead of butter flavored shortening and added walnuts to the topping. Will probably cut back on sugar a little next time but will definitely make this again! Read More

I made this recipe at Thanksgiving and its great as a side dish or a dessert. The granny smith apples and cranberries are just the right mix of tart and sweet. A couple days later I had leftovers for dessert and added caramel sauce. Excellent recipe (don't change a thing). I'll probably make this for Christmas too. Read More
