It really annoys me when people say a recipe is great but then go on to say how changed half the recipe. I want to read reviews of what the recipes is like as is not after people change a majority of the ingredients. Sorry, rant over. I enjoyed this recipe. I made it to take to work and even people who don't eat cranberries were eating it. Great recipe, and yes this is a 'as is' review.
This recipe was not a favorite with my family when I tried it. The whole berry cranberry sauce is very tart and the shortening gave it a heavy, almost greasy undertaste. If I make this again, I would use butter instead of shortening and maybe only half the amount of cranberry sauce.
this recipe is fantastic!
i double the oatmeal mixture and layer the bottom with it as well...
this tasted really very good, not too sweet and not too tart. it might bee a good idea to (very) coursely chop the cranberries first, a whole cranberry can be very tart if you bite into too many in one mouthfull, but definitely a keeper!
I used 2 Fuji apples and 3 Granny Smith for this recipe. I think it was a good idea to add some sweet apples in there because otherwise it would be quite tart. I also used unsalted butter for the topping. It is a very good crisp though and super easy to make.
Combined two recipes and doubled; here are my modifications: combine: 2.5c oats, 1c br.sugar, 2/3c flour, 1c soft butter, 1/2c nuts, chopped (for topping). Heat together as in recipe: 16oz cranberry, 3T cornstarch, 2T lemon juice, 4T sugar, 1/4tsp nutmeg, dash ginger. Add: 8 granny smith apples, 16oz peach sauce (canned peaches may also work). Baked in 9x13 dish. Delicious!
Very good crisp! I used butter instead of butter flavored shortening and added walnuts to the topping. Will probably cut back on sugar a little next time, but will definitely make this again!
I made this recipe at Thanksgiving and its great as a side dish or a dessert. The granny smith apples and cranberries are just the right mix of tart and sweet. A couple days later I had leftovers for dessert and added caramel sauce. Excellent recipe (don't change a thing). I'll probably make this for Christmas too.
