Apple Cranberry Crisp


Apple Cranberry Crisp

Makes 3 servings


This tasty crisp brings back warm, homey memories of days gone by for those of us who live in apple country.

In fact, the first Macintosh apple was grown just down the road from us.

A perfect Fall treat!


Tips: Two medium apples yield about 112 cups (375 mL) chopped.

If you cannot tolerate cornstarch, substitute an equal amount of arrowroot starch.

If you have your oven turned on to any temperature between 325°F (160°C) and 375°F (190°C) to bake something else, you can add this crisp to it. The baking time could vary by 5 minutes.

Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C)

3-cup (750 mL) round or oval casserole dish


112 cups            coarsely chopped apples            375 mL
