{Tuesdays With Dorie} Out Of The Mouths Of Babes Cran-Apple Crisps

Oh, children and the things they will say.  Like “My mom says you can’t come over ’cause you’re a bad influence” to a friend’s daughter.  OH THE HORROR.

So after eating some crow, I barely had room for dessert.  But I had made these Cran-Apple Crisps for Tuesdays with Dorie and I had to make room, and I’m glad I did.

These lovely crisps are made with fresh apples and fresh and dried cranberries.  I used a mixture of Granny Smith and Honey Crisp (my new favorite) apples.  The only change I made was to use walnuts in the crisp mixture instead of coconut, which I thought made a great substitution.

The sweet apples and tart cranberries were very tasty together in these crisps, and a scoop of ice cream added just a little more sweetness.  I highly recommend it.


This Tuesdays with Dorie pick was brought to you by Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef and you can find the recipe there.

  1. Your crisp looks so tasty, especially with those beautiful cranberry juices flowing over the sides. A side of ice cream doesn’t hurt one bit, either!

  2. I can’t wait to make this crisp (hoping to do so tomorrow night) and I might try putting the molasses cookies on top instead of the oatmeal. I like your walnuts idea. Yours looks great.

  3. OMW I am laughing hysterically at the Out of the Mouths of Babes part of this post…that is too funny. Your crisp looks wonderful and that bit of ice cream floating on top makes me feel like licking my lips and heading the kitchen to make some more for tonight as we do have ice cream right now! Great post, thanks for the laughs.

  4. Yep, don’t those “babes” teach us a few lessons. Sorry about the crow but wow the crisp looks delicious and I’m so glad you loved it. Me too! Also, let me say I really love your home page. Just very neat and clean and to the point without a boatload of clutter. Thank you! Original in appearance, at least to me. Awesome. Thank you for stopping by for a visit.

  5. Oh, I love hearing the stories of my nieces and nephews….it scares me what I will probably endure as well 😉 But at least you had something to wash the crow down with 😉 Looks amazing….we loved it too!

  6. Kids are fun, yes? My Mom still reminds me to this day when I told her best friend about the secret baby shower Mom was preparing for her…which was to be on the very next day! I still recall the shocked look on my Mom’s face ~ and hoped to never see ‘that’ look again.

    Your crisp looks absolutely delicious! I made the crisp earlier in the month and loved it too. A holiday must recipe =)

  7. I’m swooning over your crisp and even though I’m trying to steer clear of too many sweets (diet. dun-dun-dun.) I think I’ll reward myself a bit today and make this, again. Yum.
