TWD: Cran-Apple Crisps (er.... crisp)
First of all, I'd like to apologize for the terrible picture. The crisp was cut into literally as I was opening the camera case. Second, this month we were given the four TWD recipes as usual, but since some might be great for Thanksgiving, we are allowed to post in any order we want. Which is great for me, because I did not have time to make the cake with filling, syrup, glaze... all that fun stuff. Still having some apples to use up from when we went apple picking, I decided to go with the Cran-Apple Crisps, chosen by Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef. I honestly have never baked with fresh cranberries (shocking!), so I was excited to see how they would come out. Everything turned out great. You need eight ramekins for this recipe, but I only have three, so I just used a big dish. The topping is wonderful - sweet and full of coconut. The filling was great, too. I found the fresh cranberries to be a bit tart, but everybody else loved them. I really recommend this recipe, and it would probably be great for Thanksgiving, too. As always, if you want the recipe, you can buy the book or find head over to Em's blog (link above). She will have the recipe up eventually, if not this week. Enjoy!
