Apple Cranberry Crisp
Hi, my name is Michelle, and I have an obsession with Christmas candles.
It’s a problem, guys. If I’m somewhere where they sell seasonal candles, I can’t help but stop and sniff every single holly-jolly-maple-pumpkin-apple scented candle the store has to offer–sometimes twice. It’s practically a compulsion.
Cranberry Apple Cobbler
Since we are getting all confessional and all, I actually spent so much time in Bath and Body Works the other day going through all of their candles (and getting embarrassingly excited over the fact they brought back my favorite scent), four different sales clerks as if I needed help finding anything. #imonlyhereforthecandledisplay
Well, for those of you like me who have a thing for candles and baking, you’re going to l-o-v-e this Apple Cranberry Crisp!
Trust me, your house will smell better than the Christmas candle(s) you spent way too much money on, yet justified it by telling yourself, ‘it’s the season.’ Plus, the crisp is edible, so it’s a win/win situation. 🙂 Am I right, or am I right??

Let’s talk about the components of this Apple Cranberry Crisp! The ingredients used in this crisp are basic, household ingredients. The simplicity of the recipe makes this sweet crisp (with a hint of tartness) a breeze to make.
The fruit portion of this Cranberry Apple Cobbler uses apples, cranberries, lemon juice, vanilla extract and granulated sugar while the crumble portion uses butter, flour, oats, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
Despite there being 10 ingredients, it truly is a ‘throw together’ dessert that smells and tastes like the season. Top with a scoop of ice cream or dollop of whipped cream to make it the perfect dessert!
Also, look how beautiful the cranberries are against the brown crumble! They are bursting with flavor, however they are still gorgeous in color!
