{twd} mini tropical crisps


I’m sure the Cran-Apple Crisps are delicious and I know they areĀ  seasonally appropriate. However, I’m currently in a vacation frame of mind. I leave for Fiji/French Polynesia in a week & a half and I can’t wait. When I read Dorie Greenspan’s Playing Around suggestion of using bananas & pineapple instead of the cranberries and apples, I jumped at it.

I made an 1/8th of the recipe and was able to make 5 two-bite crisps. For the fruit I used: pineapple, banana, mango, and dried pineapple. When I made the crisp topping, I used chipotle chile powder instead of the spices.

Thank you to Em of The Repressed Pastry Chef for hosting this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie selection. If you would like the recipe, please visit her blog or buy the book.
