I halved the recipe since it was just for DD & myself. I used half Splenda & half sugar to cut down on calories. Made for Zaar Stars Tag
We loved this crisp! Especially the crispy chewy topping. I halved the margarine and decreased the flour by 2 tablespoons. The second time I made this I made it only with the cranberries and baked it 15 minutes, then broiled it 2 more minutes. We decided that this is the best crisp we've ever had! Great served warm with low fat vanilla (or eggnog) ice cream.
This was a wonderful dessert -- I absolutely love cranberries and the mix of apples and cranberries was really nice. The only change I made was to reduce the amount of sugar; otherwise, I made as directed. Only one problem -- I forgot to buy ice cream to go along with it. : ) Actually, it was wonderful just as it is and I didn't miss the ice cream at all. : ) Made for PRMR, November, 2013.
I chose this recipe to help use the last pkg of cranberries left from the holidays but now I'm wishing that I had more of them. This is terrific. The cranberry nip id there but as a marvelous touch and not at all overpowering. I used Splenda for the sugar and added a lit bit of cinnamon to both the fruit and the topping. Will certainly make it again.
This is OMG delicious and so very easy to prepare. The only thing I did differently is to use unsalted butter in place of the margarine. I served this with low-fat ice cream. Thanks, loof! Made for Best of 2010 Tag Game as recommended by Maito.
warm, comofrting, tasty and simple.. what's not to love?!
Sometimes multitasking is not such a good idea - I forgot the brown sugar in the crumble, but this still turned out great. I reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and would reduce it more, and subbed walnuts for the pecans, but otherwise followed the recipe. it's great comfort food and not fussy to prepare.
Since I'm getting low on my frozen cranberries, I cut this recipe in half (& did toast the pecans) & now can't wait for autumn when I can stock up on the berries again AND MAKE THIS GREAT CASSEROLE FOR COMPANY! Definitely a keeper! [Tagged, made & reviewed in Newest Zaar Tag]
loof, this is a definite keeper! I cut the ingredients in half, used Splenda sugars and old-fashioned oats. Served warm with ice cream, it was luscious! Thanks so much for sharing this one..we'll enjoy this many times! MERP'd for Newest Zaar tag '08.
