Autumn is here, it's the best time of the year!! You may be all about that pumpkin spice, (and that is okay, because I am, too,) but THE flavor of Fall is perfectly combined in this delicious Apple Cranberry Pecan Crumble.
I first posted about it a few years ago, alongside other cranberry recipes. It was recipe of my sister-in-law's and let me tell you, everyone is always excited to see this at Thanksgiving or Christmas! I adjusted the recipe a bit, to make it easy and require little pre-planning and shopping. We eat this all of the time! Here is a hint…..stock up on whole, fresh cranberries when you see them in the store in the upcoming weeks. I buy a big bag or two and it lasts all year long in the freezer.
This Apple Cranberry Pecan Crumble can be adjusted to your likings, dietary restrictions, allergies, etc. We have to make half without pecans because our oldest is allergic and the other two don't really like pecans. Pfft…whatever that's about. I have made a big dish for Hubs and I and a smaller one for the kids. There really is no right or wrong with this delicious fall dessert!
