Cranberry Apple Crisp

Torrey Moseley


This is a fabulous autumn's also great for breakfast. I usually make this at holidays and several times from September-Februrary...just because. And YES, it has butter in it (go figure). And you can use other fruits too. Substitute with equal amount of different berries or leave them out altogether and just have an apple crisp.
