This is delicious. At first I thought there was too much cinammon but after it baked and was all bubbly and the apple and cranberry juices mixed with the cinammon it was wonderful!The topping was perfect--I was out of nuts so omitted them--and it was still good. I wouldn't change a thing. By the way the recipe doesn't specify whether or not to chop up the cranberries don't---they would almost disappear if you did---they sort of "explode" as they bake and make wonderful juice--and still contribute to the texture of the dish. Delicious!!!! Read More

Wasn't my favorite but it's good. I think the recipe needs alittle tweaking -- The topping was on the dry side and the cinnamon was a little heavy. Next time I'll add pats of butter on top before baking. I'll also cut the cinnamon back to 2 tsps instead of 3. Read More

Great! As per other reviewers, I made extra crisp for the top (maybe an extra half recipe) and I probably could have made it as per the recipe. FYI - I used 4 apples, as many people weren't sure how many apples was 2 lbs. Read More

I made this for a Christmas dinner. It won many compliments, however it really was at its finest when it was cold. Delicious! I should've served it cold instead of reheating it before serving. I changed the amount of crisp, quadrupled it actually! Gotta love the crisp! I even baked it in a 9x13 dish since wanted more crisp than filling and, honestly, was out of dishes. This turned out to be a bit of a wrong turn. My insanity resulted in the filling just being a thin little layer at the bottom. I will definitely make this again, but next time I will bake it in a 9x9 or similar dish. Will I quadruple the crisp again? Heck yeah! I might even add more cranberries. They were great and just so few! Oh, and I threw in a handful of orange craisins, the kind you buy in a bag in the raisin area of the grocery store for a little bit of orange zesty juiciness. This recipe is a dream with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for the recipe. I'm hungry for some right now, but all leftovers were gone by the next day. Read More

What a hit! I used three large Granny Smith apples and twice the amount of cranberries. Another reviewer said that she thought that the recipe called for too much cinnamon...but once she baked it she realized it was perfect. I agree as I was adding the cinnamon it seemed like a lot...but in the baking it adds a terrific flavor! I also doubled the amount of the topping which was perfect. One thing that I may do next time is add more quick oats...to make the topping crunchier! A This one is a winner!! Read More

Delicious! I split up the mixture among four ramekins and baked at 375º for about 25 minutes. The taste and texture were both phenomenal. Read More

This was heavenly! I loved the rich tangy sauce that formed underneath and the cranberries made it so pretty. Many reviewers have suggested making more of the topping but I disagree; the fruit is the main event here and I thought the proportions were just right. Read More

The basis of this recipe is great however I modified a few things just as a matter of convenience. I used two cans of canned apples and one bag of cranberries (same area you would find raisins in at grocery store). instead of fresh. Due to the sugar already in the canned apples I omitted the white sugar from the recipe. I also used sliced almonds instead of pecans. This was a wonderful quick dessert that everyone loved. I served with cool whip. Would absolutely make again. Read More

Loved this! But I had to bake it in a larger dish. When I tried to fit it in a pan of the specified size the apple mixture wouldn't fit. Read More

Delicious! A beautiful blend of sweet and tangy. I was a little short of two pounds on my apples so I added some extra cranberries though I didn't feel I needed to worry about the extra tartness since I was using sweet red apples instead of Granny Smiths. Next time I will double the topping because it's sooo good!:) Read More
