Individual Apple Cranberry Crisps


With all the cold, rainy weather we’re having lately I had a craving for a nice apple crisp of some kind. Cranberries sounded like a nice tart addition, so I decided on those as well. So I found a good basic recipe via Taste of Home, and tweaked it to be individual ramekins. Plus, I added vanilla, because… well, vanilla!

Start by slicing a bunch of apples and add in some cranberries.


Add in some sugar, flour, vanilla, and a bit of orange or lemon zest if you happen to have some laying around (I used orange).

Here’s a healthy recipe… for your mental health

Here’s a healthy recipe… for your mental health

I really wanted to do a healthy recipe next, but apparently my stomach had other ideas, because instead I found myself buying apples to do my mother’s apple cobbler that I grew up eating. It’s actually properly called a clafouti, but it still falls in the cobbler class of desserts, so I keep calling it that. You can do it with really any type of fruit, but with all the great apples around right now, it’d be a shame not to use them. Other favorite fruit combinations of mine are triple berry, blackberry nectarine, and I’ve recently been pondering a pear with grated gruyere in it, courtesy of Pushing Daisies.

Now, to make this dish, you start by putting a stick of butter in a baking dish into a cold oven, and preheating the oven to 400 degrees. As the oven warms, it will melt the stick of butter and give it some nice browning. You just have to be careful not to forget about it and burn the butter.


While that is going on, get out a large mixing bowl and mix together 2 cups of flour, 2 cups of sugar, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1 1/2 cups of milk.
