What are you planning to make for Thanksgiving dessert this year? Is your family all about one big statement dessert – such as pumpkin cheesecake or chocolate pecan pie – or do you like to have a few different desserts?

I have to say, I like the idea of having two or three simple yet flavorful desserts so that everyone can try a bit of everything. Pecan bars, no-bake pumpkin cheesecake, and an apple crisp would be a dessert spread to go crazy for! 

The idea for this cranberry apple crisp originally came from my friend Emily over at Jelly Toast as a spin on her grandma’s traditional holiday apple crisp. 

I love the combination of the tart cranberries with the apples and sweet oat topping and think this would be a beautiful addition to your Thanksgiving menu.

Pecan Pie with Bourbon and Ginger

What’s more traditional than pecan pie for the holidays? (That wasn’t really a question, because most of us already know the answer.) I love this zippy variation, with a triple dose of ginger and a belt of bourbon to boot. It’s especially good with a scoop of white chocolate-fresh ginger ice cream.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Pecan Apple Cranberry Crisp
Cranberries and apples a wonderful combination. Sweet crisp apples contrast well with much tarter cranberries in all kinds of recipes, from pies to sauces. This Gluten Free Oatmeal Pecan Apple Cranberry Crisp is a simple dessert that showcases the two fruits in a delicious way, with a nutty oatmeal and pecan topping that provides a perfect contrast for the tender fruit below.

This crisp is homey and perfect for serving up on a cold fall or winter evening. The filling is sweet-tart and has a lovely pink hue, as the apple slices soak up a bit of the juices from the berries as the crisp bakes. The topping is crisp, crumbly and nutty, a delicious contrast for the tender fruit beneath it. The fruit is, of course, a combination of apples and cranberries. Apple should be peeled and sliced into 12-16 pieces before being added to the filling mixture to ensure that they are not too large to cook evenly while the dessert is baking. I like sweet-tart apples, not extremely tart Granny Smiths, in this recipe, but you can use any apple that you like to bake with.

The topping itself is extremely easy to put together. It is a combination of oatmeal, almond meal (also known as almond flour), spices and brown sugar, along with a generous handful of chopped pecans for texture. Even though it seems like there is more almond in the mix than pecans, the buttery flavor of the pecans really comes through in the finished dish, much moreso than the flavor of the almond meal. I love how pecans work with the oatmeal, apples and cranberries. That said, if you are a big almond-lover, you can replace the chopped pecans with chopped almonds, too.

I prefer to use quick cooking oatmeal in this recipe. Quick cooking oatmeal is basically rolled oats that have been coarsely chopped into smaller pieces. The smaller pieces produce a more uniform topping in this recipe and look a bit better than regular rolled oats do. Oatmeal is naturally gluten free, but if you need to be sure this crisp is completely free of gluten, look for oatmeal that is labeled “gluten free” on the packaging just to ensure that it was not processed in a facility with wheat flour.

Gluten Free Oatmeal Pecan Apple Cranberry Crisp
1 cup gluten free quick cooking oatmeal
1/2 cup almond meal
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup butter, melted and cooled
1/3 cup coarsely chopped pecans.
4 large apples (approx 2 lbs), peeled and sliced
1 1/2 cups whole cranberries, fresh or frozen
1 tbsp cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Take out an 8×8 or 9×9-inch baking pan.
In a medium bowl, whisk together oatmeal, almond meal, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and brown sugar. Pour in melted butter and stir with a form until mixture comes together and resembles wet sand. Stir in pecan pieces.
In a large bowl, combine the sliced apples (aim to get 12-16 per large apple) and cranberries with cornstarch and sugar, then toss to combine. Transfer fruit mixture to the baking pan and spread into an even layer.
Top fruit evenly with the crumble mixture.
Bake for about 45-50 minutes, or until the fruit is tender and filling is bubbling. IF the top is browning too quickly, cover loosely with a piece of aluminum foil.
Allow to cool before serving, but can be served warm or at room temperature.

Serves 6-8

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread

This Orange Cranberry Almond Bread includes almond flour for a moist, tender crumb in a quick bread that is bursting with orange and cranberries! Cranberry and orange are two ingredients that are a match made in heaven. Sweet-but-tart cranberries are always well balanced by zesty-yet-sweet orange juice. This recipe adds almonds to the mix for a loaf that is a delicious addition to any breakfast or brunch menu.

Almond flour – also known as almond meal – is a great ingredient to work with in all kinds of baked goods. It can yield a denser and more tender cake than regular flour, as well as adding a mildly nutty flavor and a bit of additional protein. Of course, when it comes to baked goods, you probably shouldn’t count on them as a major protein source most days, but it’s still nice to boost that nutritional profile when you can. You can make your own almond flour by grinding almonds in the food processor, but these days there are many good commercial brands to choose from.

The recipe is flavored with fresh orange juice and zest, and it is studded with plenty of cranberries. You can use fresh or frozen cranberries, as both will work just fine in this recipe. To draw a little more attention to the ground almonds, I also added some sliced almonds to the bread for a little bit of crunch. The bread is moist and tender, with a slightly denser crumb than the recipe would have it I made it with all purpose flour alone. It holds the up cranberries perfectly, so the finished loaf is beautiful to look at. You get a nice orange and cranberry flavor in every bite, with a subtle almond flavor. It’s delicious and a great twist on a more traditional cranberry orange bread.

The loaf will be a touch flatter than all-flour quick breads, so don’t be surprised if it doesn’t rise quite as much as some other loaves do. It will still develop a nice top crust, particularly if you sprinkle it with a bit of coarse sugar before baking.

Orange Cranberry Almond Bread
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
3/4 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
1 large egg
1 tbsp orange zest
3/4 cup orange juice, freshly squeezed
1 cup fresh cranberries
1/2 cup sliced or slivered almonds
coarse sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 375F. Lightly grease a 9×5-inch loaf pan. If desired, line the bottom of the loaf pan with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
In a large bowl, whisk together sugar, melted butter, egg and orange zest. Stir in half of the flour mixture, followed by the orange juice. Stir in the remaining flour mixture and, when it has been almost completely combined, fold in cranberries and slivered almonds. Mix until cranberries are well-distributed and no streaks of flour remain visible.
Pour batter into prepared pan. If desired, sprinkle loaf with 1 tbsp coarse sugar.
Bake for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the loaf comes out clean and the cake springs back when lightly pressed
Allow loaf to cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then run a knife around the edge to loosen it and turn it out onto a wire rack to cool completely before slicing.

Makes 1 loaf; serves 10.

If you’re looking for a festive and delicious holiday recipe to add to your cookie trays this year, I’ve got you covered with these orange cranberry cookies!

These vibrant orange cranberry cookies are so easy to make. Cranberry and orange go together so well and I’m always looking for excuses to pair them up.

I’ve got cranberry orange scones and Grand Marnier-spiked homemade cranberry sauce, as well as cranberry orange cinnamon rolls and cranberry orange smoothies. You could say I’m obsessed!

Dried cranberries are often the go-to when it comes to cookies, but these fresh cranberry cookies have a great tart flavor that is complemented by the orange glaze.

You can make the glaze or go without, but I just love the added sweetness it brings!

This is such a great Christmas cookie to add to the dessert tray.

If you find yourself counting down the days until you can get your hands on Cranberry Bliss Bars, this copycat recipe is exactly what you need to enjoy them at home any time of the year.

Three cranberry bliss bars arranged on a white plate, with a bite taken out of one of them

I used to count down the days until I could buy the Starbucks Cranberry Bliss Bar. But now I have my own recipe, and honestly, it’s even better!

Cranberry is such a wonderful flavor that deserves more attention all year long. I’m not complaining about it getting its due in winter, though.

The flavors in these cranberry bars are similar to another copycat recipe of mine, glazed orange scones, as well as my cranberry orange bread and cranberry orange cinnamon rolls.

What can I say, I love the combo of cranberry and orange!

Last week, in a continued effort to get my fridge back to inbox zero after it was groaning under the weight of the extraneous contents of a few shoots here this fall, I decided to take my surplus of cranberries, oranges, and pecans and turn them into a cranberry bread. Except — wait — I don’t have a recipe for cranberry bread. Why did you guys let me go 15 years without a cranberry bread recipe on this site? How did I go 1300 recipes deep in the archives and never find my forever version of one of most classic late fall recipes everyone deserves in their repertoire? Let’s fix this right now.

Along the way to this final cranberry bread — which yes, predictably required purchasing more cranberries, pecans, and oranges for testing and retesting, as if I’d misunderstood the assignment — two things happened that shocked even me.
