Not excited about pumpkin pie? Can’t have pecans or other nuts?

There’s always the venerable apple pie to end Thanksgiving dinner. But let us suggest an easy-to-make alternative:

Cranberry Apple Crisp from Ocean Spray.

We recently were served a piece, and it was love at first bite. When one guest had to leave in advance of dessert, it was all we could do not to reach across the table and snatch her plate (we were among strangers, and shy).

Fortunately, this Ocean Spray recipe is so easy…and with a crisp, you don’t have to roll out pie crusts.

This is a recipe everyone will enjoy.

Crisp, crumble, cobbler: here’s the difference.

Prep time is 20 minutes, cook time is 45 minutes. This recipe is made in a baking pan, but you can make individual servings in ramekins.

Ingredients For 9 Servings

  • 5 cups sliced tart apples (about 6 medium apples)
  • 1 1/2 cups Ocean Spray fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • Optional garnish: vanilla ice cream, whipped cream

    1. PREHEAT the oven to 375ºF. Lightly grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

    2. PARE and core the apples, rinse the cranberries. Layer the apples and cranberries in the pan, sprinkling with sugar as you layer.

    3. MAKE the topping: Combine the flour, brown sugar and cinnamon. Work in the butter the until light and crumbly. Sprinkle topping evenly over apples and cranberries.

    4. BAKE 45 minutes or until apples are tender.

    Makes 9 servings.
