apple cranberry crisp

This delicious dish smells/tastes like apple pie with a punch.  We found this recipe in Martha Stewart’s Every Day Food magazine.  We’ve eaten it both as dessert and breakfast!

This is a calorie dense dessert and so I’ve been eating a half serving and Dan has been eating it whenever he feels like!
