Apple Cranberry Crisps - Chatelaine

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Diana 2

I found this recipe in of all places....the Air Miles magazine. Turns out it's from Chatelaine magazine. This is baked in individual serving sizes, but I expect it could also be made in a 9 or 10 inch casserole dish. Either way...nothing says comfort quite like a fruit crisp. This one especially. Would be wonderful to top off your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. I used orange juice in place of the liqueur. Use Granny Smith or any other firm apple because of the long baking time. Individual serving dishes should have a 1-1/2 cup capacity. Oh....don't forget the whipping cream on top ;)

There is something very comforting about apple crisp and with the addition of cranberries and almonds it makes it extra special. I was concerned about the quantity of apples; however, the fruit does really cook down and something that must be considered. The spices were added together and the equivalent in apple pie spice was used. I also used the orange juice option. The recipe was reduced to 4 servings nicely and baked in individual pie tins. This is a wonderful winter treat.
