Recipe by Redneck Epicurean
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.

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...
- 5 medium apples (I like Gala or a mix of Gala and Granny Smith for this recipe)
- 1 (16 ounce) can whole berry cranberry sauce
- 3⁄4 cup Splenda granular or 3⁄4 cup sugar

- 1⁄3 cup flour
