First off let me just say this.
Sooo good. Ok now let me get the formalities in here:
The Cran-Apple Crisp was chosen by Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef (I love her blog, you will too!) for the week of November 10th. Because we can bake out of order this month, I’m just now posting it this week. You can find the recipe here on her blog or on page 422 of Baking From My Home to Yours. There. :)
Now on to this fabulous dessert. First off, it was a tad sweet, but I think that’s because I used Fuji apples, which by nature are more sweet than tart. The recipe itself doesn’t specify what type of apples to use, but personally I think if you are going to use a sweeter variety of apple, it’s better to cut the sugar back.
I am making this again for Thanksgiving. I’m actually making it for dessert for the night before Thanksgiving when we head to out of town to see family. I plan to bring all the ingredients and make everything there since it’s so danged easy to throw this together! Since I’m not sure if they have a food processor, I will probably make the topping ahead and bring it with. Dorie says you can make it up to three days in advance.
Just for the record, I’m not big on cobblers and crisps, but this particular dessert has such great flavor, and the topping sweetened with chewy coconut is divine. I loved this, perfect warm paired with vanilla ice cream!
Very easy. You must try it. You must. Go. Now. And make it. You’ll thank me :)
