Festive Apple Crisp Recipe

Growing up I couldn’t wait for this to come out of the oven. The topping was so crispy with brown sugar it melted in your mouth.

*Note my twist to this recipe is adding 1 bag of whole cranberries…sssh don’t tell Betty (sorry mom)


  1. I add 1 bag of fresh cranberries for an added touch of yummy

  2. Use a fork when testing the apples for tenderness, fork should go through apple

  3. Lemon Juice can be replaced by Pineapple Juice
