Cran-Apple Crisps (TWD)

Tuesday, November 10


This recipe was so easy to put together that it almost left me feeling unfulfilled. There was no dough rolling involved, nothing had to chill for an hour, and I didn't have to scoop out batch after batch and stand by the oven all day waiting for the timer to sound off. Not that I don't enjoy all those tasks. I wouldn't be a baker if I did not. But now and then, especially if I am having a lazy day, it's nice to have a wonderful dessert with a minimal amount of work and only a few measuring cups and dishes to wash. After I put these into the oven my mind was jazzed up waiting for more steps. But I looked at the recipe and happily, but with maybe a tinge of disappointment, realized that I had nothing left to prepare.


Since I have been a bit off my running/pilates routine, I was also relieved that this was not too heavy or rich. Not that this factor would have stopped me from making it. I also only made 1/4 of the recipe which was lucky for my conscience and my yoga pants. *I did share the other ramekin*.

This is another ideal recipe for these chilly Autumn days. They fit nicely into ramekins so you can get comfortable under a blanket and enjoy one with your favourite book. You can find the recipe on Em's blog The Repressed Pastry Chef. Her blog has a beautiful, creative layout and she has a lot of mouth watering recipes! If you are like me, you may loose track of time as you browse through her food photos.

As I stated last week, the Tuesdays with Dorie member are allowed to make November's recipes in any order we desire so you may find different posts on the blogs. But please don't let that deter you from reading them. The chosen recipes this month are all perfect for the holidays.

  2. I had the same feeling about this recipe. Is that all there is??

    Like your idea to use dates. Love them and always have them. Seem to add a complex flavor and sweetness.
