My sister-in-law made an AWESOME apple cranberry crisp for Thanksgiving dinner. I’m not typically someone who’s a big fruity-dessert person – but this was seriously yummy!
I asked for the recipe, and when I got it, I immediately knew why it tasted so good – lots of sugar and lots of butter. Man, why do those two things have to be so bad for us?!
Anyway, since then I’ve been on the hunt for a good substitute recipe. The first one I found sounded pretty good, but the blogger admitted that the crisp wasn’t really crispy. What’s the point of having a not-so-crispy crisp? I have no clue.
So, I decided to go back to Skinnytaste to see if she had anything, and ta-da! A Cinnamon Apple Crisp recipe that still uses butter, but a lot less sugar, complete with a Crispy Crisp! Considering it’s a dessert, the nutritional info per serving isn’t bad either: 242 calories, 6.8 g fat, 2.3 g protein, 49.5 g carbs, 4.5 g fiber, and 32.3 g sugar.
I plan to try this recipe at Christmas, but I will be substituting cranberries for the raisins. Wish me luck and I’ll let you know how it turns out!
