  2. Top with a mixture of remaining ingredients.

Recipe Notes

**Granny Smith apples are ideal to keep the recipe from having too much liquid.
I double this recipe to serve 12-15 and serve in a 10x13 dish.
My family likes it sweet so we add extra sugar to taste.
I have made this recipe with blueberries instead of cranberries and it was good, but we prefer the tart cranberry taste.
