I was looking in the freezer the other day and noticed that I had two packages of frozen fresh cranberries. I froze them last year when we had the snow and were not able to have our friends over for dinner. I had no appetite for cranberries during the summer but now that Fall has arrived - I'm more interested in cooking with cranberries.
I knew that G and I would not eat a full cranberry tart. I wanted something a bit smaller. I did not feel like cranberry bread either.
I recently started following Savory Sweet Life on Twitter. I was looking at her blog and came across a wonderful recipe for Cranberry Apple Crisp. We love crisps. Apples and cranberries also sounded like interesting and seasonal combination. I was also intrigured with the idea of cooking the cranberries in orange juice before combining with the apples.
I cut the recipe in half and put it in a souffle pan instead of a 9x13 pan. I still cooked it 45 minutes and it turned out perfect. Definitely serve it with ice cream since it is a little tart from the cranberries and the ice cream balances the sweetness.
