TWD Cran Apple Crisp



This week’s TWD recipe is cran apple crisp and was chosen by Em of the Repressed pastry Chef. As I mentioned yesterday we had my family staying over the weekend and it was pretty hectic. I almost forgot to make my cran apple crisp until last night when I quickly made dinner before we took Mum and Dad to the airport. I guess that this proves that cran apple crisp is a quick and easy dessert to make.

Cran apple crisp is basically like an apple crumble with the addition of cranberries, both fresh and dried. I was lazy and just made my crisp with canned apple slices and dried cranberries – you can very rarely buy fresh cranberries in NZ and the frozen ones are also hard to come by. The topping was a crumble made with the addition of rolled oats, thread coconut, cinnamon and ginger. We ate the crisp with yoghurt and a little milk.

We all loved this – leftovers would be good for breakfast as well!! See if the other TWDers enjoyed it here.

Your crisp looks great Tammy. I haven't ever seen fresh cranberries here. There's nothing like a quick and tasty dessert!

I did the yogurt thing too. The contrast of the creamy yogurt with the fruit and crunch was subline. Nice job!

Fabulous! I'm making the crisp next week, hearing rave reviews :) I made the cookies this week and they were awesome!

I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed this even though it's out of season for you. Fresh cranberries are easy to find in the US; I have some and I plan to make this for dessert tonight!

If I could send you fresh cranberries, I would! I'm sure the dried were delicious, but fresh ones are wonderful. We (mainly I) enjoyed the crisp as well.
