I’m sure the Cran-Apple Crisps are delicious and I know they are 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.
