Cran-Apple Crisp


This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie selection is Cran-Apple crisp and it was chosen by Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef. I'm afraid I only made plain apple crisp because there were no fresh cranberries to be found, but it was still very good. It smelled wonderful baking. The topping was the star of the show here. I think that the combination of the crumb topping is the best I ever tasted.


I used Cameo apples in the crisp. This was the first time I had these apples and I thought they were great. They were juicy and crisp and had just a bit tart. If you haven't tried them please do. Thanks to Em for choosing this recipe.

Looks gorgeous.

I love the dish you made it in.

I made it this week too.

I took it a different direction too.

Love your dish! I am making this dish for Thanksgiving dessert. I made the cookies this week. (They are great if you haven't tried them).

Very pretty! You should try it again when you can get some cranberries - it is terrific like that, too.

The dish is from Bybee Pottery. They are a local potter that has been in the same family for 200 years. They make many pieces in the arts and crafts type style. You can never have enough of their wonderful things.

Your crisp looks delicious... good to know it turns out well even without the cranberries. I read where others had trouble finding them too. I am new to Tuesdays with Dorie and enjoy visiting other bakers.

Kindly, ldh

Your crisp looks absolutely delightful! Cameo apples are wonderful, and I bet they were just right to balance the tartness of the cranberries.
