This Sweet Potato and Cranberry Crisp is a fun twist on the classic Thanksgiving side dish, made even sweet ‘n’ saltier with a potato chip and pecan topping. Post sponsored by Kettle Brand Chips.

Sweet Potato-Cranberry Crisp

It’s just never seemed to belong next to my turkey and mashed potatoes. Too mushy, lackluster, or overwhelmed by marshmallows. For whatever reason, I just feel compelled to skip it.

But not this year. I’ve taken the traditional dish and turned into a Thanksgiving side I want seconds of.

Ultimate Summer Fruit Cobbler

All of the credit for this fabulous summer dessert goes to a reader, Diana, who commented on a facebook question I posted asking for summer recipe requests. She replied:

“The ultimate summer fruit cobbler. Maybe peaches…blackberries. And not the shortcut one where they tell you to use bisquick- yuck! One with a real topping made from scratch. Would love to see that!”

Well here you are, Diana. This is the ultimate summer fruit cobbler, filled with all the fresh fruit and berries of the season and topped with a from-scratch (but still easy!) buttermilk cake-like crust.
