Fall is creeping up on us! Around here the mornings are a little more crisp, the leaves are starting to slowly turn colors and the flowers of summer are slowly fading away. Fall’s arrival also ushers in all the flavors of fall – apples being one of our favorites – so off to the orchard we will head very soon. Last week on a rather chilly day I threw together this delicious yet easy Slow Cooker Apple Cranberry Crisp! This is a recipe that sort of evolved over the years and I can easily adapt depending on how many of our kids are around.

You’ll love the addition of cranberries – they give this just a tiny bit of tart and add some color to a basically brownish treat. Now this ‘crisp’ won’t get as crispy on the top as a traditional oven-baked ‘crisp;’ if you are determined to have a crispy topping you may want transfer to an oven-safe dish after cooking and broil the top for a minute or two. That’s completely optional and up to you. What isn’t optional is serving this alongside a big dollop of vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream; it’s delicious and adds another level of flavor.

If by chance you have any leftovers, use them up at breakfast by making Apple Cranberry Crisp Pancakes, so yummy!
