Apple Crisp with Cranberries
Adding molasses to fruits creates a rich caramel flavour in this cranberry apple crisp recipe. The cranberries add a pretty touch and tart flavour.

I made this recipe today. The fresh cranberries had not come in yet so I used Ocean Spray frozen cranberries .I used Golden Delicious and Braeburn apples. I doubled the recipe. I baked it in a large Staub Ceramic 4.5 (13 X 9″ ) Gratin dish. It has real high sides. I had to bake it almost an hour but it came out perfect. I let it cool down for an hour. The cranberry apple crisp was delicious. The molasses really added another dimension to the flavor. This recipe is a keeper!
Hi Paul, So pleased you enjoyed the crisp recipe. (I have made it three times in the past two weeks — always delicious.) Good to know that the recipe doubles well.
Hi. Can you add any altitude notes to your recipies. I’m in Calgary and never know if I need to make changes. Would I make any changes to this to accommodate the altitude? Ty!!! Love the recipies you share with us.
Hi there, Since I’m not able to test the recipes based on altitude I hesitate to make any recommendations. Because there is no leavening agent in this recipe you should be fine. Here is a link to some additional information: http://www.monastable.ca/blog/2017/8/29/highaltitude
Hi Robert, We’d be happy to send you a copy of our current printed cookbook, Everyday Favourites. As well, I’d be happy to email you any of the eBook files that you’d like to access. Let me know.
Haven’t seen fresh cranberries in the market in California yet, but it shouldn’t be much longer. What if instead for now I used a can of Whole Cranberry Sauce, sort of chopped up?
Hi Kim, Not sure what this recipe would be like with cranberry sauce. If I was to test it I’d start with no more than 1/2 cup of the sauce. Do you have access to frozen cranberries? They work in this recipe.

Love molasses! Just took it out of the oven, and it smells delicious! Had to alter slightly to make it gluten free, but I just know it’s going to be good!
Hi Dawne, I’m glad it was easy to adapt for a gluten-free diet. Good thing molasses is gluten free too!

just wondering if partridge berries can be substituted for the cranberries?
I bet this apple crisp would be delicious with partridge berries. Are they more tart than cranberries? (I have only had partridge berry jam so don’t know how tart they are on their own). If that’s the case you can add a bit more molasses to the filling. Enjoy!
i am going to try this one for sure.
Can’t wait to try this one ~ sounds delicious and really different with the molasses! It would make a nice Christmas dinner dessert!
This is really good
will try this one later..like trying new recipes
I just made this recipe got it in the oven , it was so easy to prepare….it looks delicous can’t wait to taste it…..
I have made “apple crisp” for years, in fact, my mother made it when I was a child. This recipe with the cranberries sounds good. I will try it.
Audrey, I hope you enjoy it. The recipe is an adaptation of my mom’s apple crisp.
Sounds great, i’m going to try this.
> Im going to try this for my Thanksgiving on Monday.
Betty, I hope that you enjoyed it!
Lillian Mac Innis.
Thank you so much. Have tried a few and certainly intend to try many more.
This sounds really good ,I have to try this, thank you.
> I will try this for my Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday.
> so delicious really love my family.
> If it has cranberries and apples-it has to be delicious!
