Apple, Pear and Cranberry Crisp

Apple Pear Cranberry Crisp

Have you finished planning your Thanksgiving menu? Since we have an extra week until the holiday, I feel like I am a little behind on planning. Fortunately, we do not have to travel this year for Thanksgiving and are hosting a small dinner with my family. Deciding what to eat for dinner is easy, but planning what to have for dessert is the difficult part. After eating a big turkey dinner, I usually don’t want anything too heavy for dessert. I love just having a few cookies or a scoop of warm apple crisp. This Apple, Pear and Cranberry Crisp is a slight adaptation of your basic apple crisp. The pears and cranberries add a unique fall flavor. The crisp is warm, comforting and the perfect dessert to serve for the holiday.ย I love the slightly tart flavor that the cranberries add. Now, I just need to figure out what type of cookies to make.

How does everyone celebrate Thanksgiving? Do you have to travel or do you host dinner at your home?
