Apple Crisp With A Twist


Remember when I went to the apple orchard in September? I had all of these plans to make lovely recipes to use up the apples that the kids so lovingly picked that day.

It's now (late) November and I still have a fridge drawer full of apples. The guilt is starting to eat away at me.

So, yesterday I put together this recipe for Apple Crisp With A Twist.You probably guessed from the picture that the twist in this apple crisp is raspberries. But, I really should have said twists plural, because I also added orange juice and flax seeds for extra fun!


I am not a big fan of apple crisps or apple pies. I prefer berries to apples. But this little dessert is all the better for pairing the two together. It turned out to be rather tasty, if I do say so myself. And, I enjoyed the little crunch from the flax seeds.

The only problem is, this kind of thing goes quickly in our house. But that's not really a problem -- I have lots more apples to use up!
