Apple and Cranberry Crisp Recipe

Apple and Cranberry Crisp

Autumn means apples in the Gorge! Celebrate the fall harvest with this Apple Cranberry Crisp recipe. We often serve it alongside our ginger nutmeg or lemon ricotta waffles. Guests love to use it as a topping.

Substitute the flour with a favored gluten-free option and now you’ve got a tasty dish for an even wider audience.
