TWD – Cran Apple Crisps

S5002804 copy

I think I have a secret apparent love affair with all desserts with funny names. For those of you who need examples:

Crisp

Crumble

Fool

Grunt

Buckle

Slump… Get the picture??

Each incorporates fruits and makes them practically irresistible to me.  Now if only I can invent a fruit dish and call it a “Whoopsy” I think my life would be complete!!

So naturally I was all smiles and sunshine when it came time to make this weeks TWD recipe. I didn’t change much about the recipe: I doubled the cinnamon and subbed the ginger for nutmeg, added some cinnamon to the cran-apple filling, and added chopped almonds to the crumble topping. And boy, let me tell you… this was GOOD!!

I don’t think I have ever fully appreciated the cranberry in anything except juice UNTIL NOW! I’m a changed woman. Changed I say.

Their tart tanginess dances beautifully with the sweet apples and crunchy-nutty-aromatic crumble topping.

My only regret? Not having vanilla ice cream to top it off with. ;)

You KNOW you want the recipe, so head on over to Em at The Repressed Pastry Chef and take a gander at her delish goodies.

  1. The topping on your crisps looks so delicious!! I’m a sucker for a good crisp too (or really, any dessert with baked fruit) so I can relate to your love affair :)

  2. Your crisp look so good! I like the idea of adding almonds into the topping. I’ve never had a fool, grunt, or slump before.. I actually don’t know what they are so I’ll have to check it out. You’re right, this would be so good with icecream.

    Lucky you! I can’t preorder my New Moon ticket. The first showing isn’t even until 10pm on the 20th, which means it will be madness at the theatres. I’m debating on waiting a week, but I don’t think I can handle it..haha.

  3. I loved the cranberries in this crisp, too! I love almonds, so I think your version of the crisp is perfect. They look delicious, I may have to make this again soon!

  4. It looks so good and hot sitting on that oven! I love your topping it looks so wonderful and tasty! Im really looking fwd to making this one. I have heard nothing but good all day. I made the bundt cake this week and liked it. I think I will like the crisp better just cus I love crisps!
    I will remember to grab some vanilla icecream!

  5. A whoopsy!! We will have to work on that one. Crisp looks perfect. I added walnuts to some and white chocolate to some. These were really good.
