I volunteered to make this recipe and do a guest blog for Wendy from the the Simply Me blog. She is attempting to cook her way through all the recipes in Simply in Season, part of a trilogy of cookbooks. I made a cranberry apple crisp which I thought was one of the best fall desserts Ive had in a while. Its not overly sweet and the tart flavor of the cranberries really add a nice touch. This would be a really good dessert to take to potlucks or to serve at your Thanksgiving table.
