When November rolls around not only do we think of turkey and dressing, we love to add cranberries and apples to the menu. There are so many delicious and no fail wonderful recipes for cranberry dishes for fall. A great combination is mixing apples and cranberries together in a recipe.

Our recipe for Cranberry Apple Crisp is a combination of sliced peeled apples, tart cranberries topped off with a brown sugar oat topping.

You will for sure want to add a dollop of Cinnamon Whip Cream on top.

It finishes it off to perfection. Cranberry Blonde Brownie Bars are the best dessert to have at home or spectacular to share when you are asked to bring a dessert to the party. Everyone will love them!
