Everyone usually associates cranberry sauce with Thanksgiving dinner. This recipe is a switch for me, as I really wasn't all that fond of the tart cranberry. Pairing sweet apples, cranberry sauce, and the delicious crisp topping is a great breakfast dish or a different take on apple crisp for dessert. It's also great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel, core, and slice the apples thinly. Cut the slices in half.
  3. Stir together the apples, cranberry sauce, Splenda or sugar, and flour. Toss to coat and place in a 9x13 baking dish.
  4. Mix together the topping ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over the apple mixture.
  5. Bake for 35-40 minutes or until the fruit is tender.
  6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped topping, if desired.

Really easy and tasty crisp! I did one thing differently... I used fresh cranberries and cooked them down with a little sugar first and then added the apples. I left out the nuts in the topping because I was out, but this was still delicious!!! Great served with some vanilla bean ice cream!!! Thanks for sharing with us Amy and may you be at peace...

I understand from reading some of the reviews from some of Redneck Epicurean's other recipes that she has passed away. I didn't know her at all but I feel for her family and what they are going through right now. I still wanted to go ahead and post - just so that others know how great this recipe is!!! I am putting this one in the "yummy file". So easy to make. It smells fantastic while it is baking! The only thing I did different was to double the pecans - I love, love, love pecans. UPDATE: I made this again, this time I used a Lite Cherry Pie filling. It was delicious! Not quite as sweet since there is not as much sugar in the cherries as there is in the cranberry sauce.

I served this "DELIGHTFUL" apple crisp to the staff where I work and I got nothing but praise all day long for it... People were even talking about it the next day. Great recipe. Make sure you use the "whole-berry" cranberry sauce.
