TWD: Cran-Apple Crisps


The TWDers who are taking part in TWD for the month of November are allowed to post our entries in the sequence we prefer. This is a relief for me, otherwise, just like the cherry-fudge brownie torte chosen for last week, I may have to skip TWD again because the recipe selected for the first week of November is another chocolate cake and if you're a regular reader of my blog, you'll know how I feel about chocolatey desserts. ;-)

Looking at the remaining three recipes, cran-apple crisps seems to be the easiest one of all, and so I decided to bake this today. I tweaked the recipe slightly by adding some almond flakes in the topping and used only dried cranberry and apples in the filling. My photo does not do justice to the cran-apple crisps at all because it's really delicious!

If you want to give the recipe a try, head over to The Repressed Pastry Chef, but please note that Em may not post the recipe until next week.

I love the addition of almonds. I am planning on making this for dessert Thanksgiving. I made the chestnut cake and it was delicious.

This one looks amazing! And fyi the molasses cookies were incredibly easy also--maybe even easier since there is no chopping involved!
