This is the quintessential fall dessert! The mixture of the fruits really compliments one another and the cranberries give it an unbelievable tartness. I found this recipe in one of my cookbooks: The Great Minnesota Hot Dish. Thanks for posting it here!
Quick and delicious. This works equally well with just apples and cranberries, and I use walnuts, making this a healthy dessert.
