Persimmon-Apple Crisp - Tuesdays with Dorie
Persimmon, Apple and Cranberry Crisp

For this week's Tuesdays with Dorie selection, Em of Repressed Pastry Chef selected Cran-Apple Crisps on page 422 of Dorie's book, Baking: From My Home to Yours.

Persimmon-Apple Crisp - Tuesdays with Dorie
I made 1/4 of the recipe which included 1 medium granny smith apple and 1/2 a fuyu persimmon. Of course, I skipped the coconut in the topping! :) I also didn't have fresh cranberries, but did include some dried cranberries.

The topping got blitzed! Man, I processed things WAY too much and ended up with oat flour instead of a topping that includes oatmeal! Next time, I'm mixing a small batch by hand.

The fruit was a bit dry. I think my apple and persimmon didn't exude enough liquid...or I used too much flour. If I make this flavor combo again, I'll add some orange juice to the mix.

Be sure to check out the other Tuesdays with Dorie bakers!

Mmm, looks good! No need for coconut. =) Glad to know I'm not the only one who totally over-processed the topping...

all these persimmons that you have on your blog are making me want to try them. I think I will.
I mixed the topping by hand and it was really good.
Looks delicious!

Looks absolutely wonderful! I love persimmons, here in Indiana we use them a lot in the fall and this looks delicious the way you have used them. I am going to try this...thanks for the idea. Enjoying your bundts immensely.

I've never had a persimmon. Fun little crisp. I'll make sure I don't over process the topping. I can't wait to make this for next week.

Note to the people who over processed their topping:
Then start shaving off bits with a knife. Mix with the dry ingredients for a crumble-type topping.

With love,
-A concerned baker.

Persimmon-Apple sounds yummy. I made my crisp by hand since I was only making a small portion and didn't feel like washing the processor.
