Apples, pears and dried cranberries fill this holiday crisp. It has all the fruit flavor and sweet streusel topping that you get in a pie, but without the need to fuss with a crust.

Easy and good autumn crisp

An easy crisp, especially use of fall fruits, but much too sweet. I used not very sweet, native North Carolina pears su I thought best not to reduce the amount of sugar. Next time, I will half it. Also, I used a sweet red wine to soak the cranberries.

Lots of fruit, easy

Make sure to soak the cranberries overnight so they are plump and extra flavorful. I doubled the crust by 1/2. It was perfect! Serve warm with vanilla ice cream and it will be a hit! Definitely one of the best desserts I've ever made.

Flavorful, easy
needs a bit more juice

i would up the 1/2 cup of sweet wine to a cup to soak the cranberries in...and cut the oats down by a 1/2 of cup...this is a great crisp and I will make it again with these small changes.

Great flavor!
We'll make this again

We made a "double" recipe, and I think the apples and pears were large, not medium, so it made three. Everybody loved it, and the leftovers are disappearing quickly.

Not too difficult to make, tastes wonderful the next day, too.
