Even though the snow has moved into Colorado I am still feeling in the Harvest and Fall mood, especially in the kitchen. This means I am busting out all of our family favorite Fall Recipes. Most of these recipes are dinners BUT I have one that I love making because it is a dessert, Cranberry Apple Crisp, This is a warm you up from the inside out dessert that will compliment your fall meals.
I personally like this recipe because it includes some fresh fruit and oats and to also make this dessert a little bit “lighter” I like to use the new I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter!® Spread. Not only is the spread super easy to bake with but it is also 40% fewer calories and 70% less saturated fat than butter!! I’ll take it!
