Recipe: Cranberry Apple Tart

recipe image from remote site

The Apple Tart option is an easy alternative but I wanted to tweak this recipe for Thanksgiving. This Cranberry Apple Tart is absolutely delicious!

The color of this dessert is vibrant and alive thanks to the beautiful fresh cranberries! Due to the cranberry tartness, it does require quite a bit more sweetener, so keep that in mind - but it is, after all, a HOLIDAY treat! Check out this Rawfully Tempting dessert..
