Apple Crisp with Cranberries

Individual Apple Crisp with Cranberries | Cooking on the Front Burner

Happy Day after Thanksgiving and Happy Black Friday!  I'm not a black Friday shopper, I just cherish my sleep more than getting a deal!  Though back in the day - well maybe 15 years ago - black Friday meant the stores opened at 6 a.m. - now that was reasonable and sometimes the stores gave out little trinkets.  Now you barely have time to eat your turkey and the stores are opening.  Geez, let the workers enjoy the holiday with their families...  Ok, enough about what I think!

Today I am contributing on the The Best Blog Recipes.  My normal day was last week but life got busy so here I am today (thanks for letting me switch!)  I recently found this recipe in my newest Cooking Light magazine and of course I wanted to tweak it - so be sure to head over to see Shauna for the complete recipe:

And.... we are still using apples from our tree.  I think their shelve life is about gone so next up I will be making apple sauce.  Our tree produced really well this year!

  5. Deb, I agree with you about merchants moving Black Friday to Thanksgiving evening. It is so unfair to the hard-working employees. These mini pies look delicious...I love anything with apple. I hope you and your family had a lovely Thanksgiving. Joan
