I had fully intended to take pictures of my event at my store today.....Bernideen's located in Historic Old Colorado City. I baked all day yesterday. I always forget to take the pictures! You know how this happens! We had all sorts of things that were yummy at our OLDE ENGLISH CHRISTMAS TEA which was a special Christmas event at my store but here are a few photos I took earlier yesterday getting ready at my house:

Bernideen’s Aspen Mulling Spice
Apple Cranberry Crisp
For the Filling you will need:
1 Carton Original Aspen Mulling Spices, 5 Large Granny Smith Apples or other baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced, 1 cup chopped cranberries, 2 Tb Light Brown sugar, 2 Tb melted butter
For the Topping you will need:
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour, 1 cup rolled oats, ½ cup granulated sugar, ½ cup packed light brown sugar, 1 ½ sticks of cold unsalted butter, cut into bits.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Make the filling by combining ingredients in bowl and put into 9 x 12 Rect ovenproof dish which has been buttered.
To make the topping: Combine all ingredients until crumbly and sprinkle over first mixture. I like pushing some of it down into the filling too! Bake 35- 40 minutes – watch for browning Let cool – it will thicken as it cools!
