View Full Version : Review: Banana/Coconut Apple Crisp--Sept. '00
01-16-2001, 07:59 AM
My DH loves apple crisp, but his recipe calls for two sticks of butter!! This one cuts that butter into half a stick and he loved the flavors--coconut, banana, apple and peach.
I did not have Rome apples so I substituted Gala and Granny Smith, and I added peach jam instead of the apricot. Even I liked it (my dessert tastes run more to chocolate), although I might try adding unsweetened coconut next time or cutting the sugar amount--it is a bit too sweet.

Sorry about that, Vanessa. I made a mistake; it is actually in Oct. '00.

Does anyone know how to edit the subject line of a post to correct the date? TIA

If you liked that crisp, you might want to try the Caramel Apple Crisp. You coat apples with Caramel sundae syrup and the crisp is flour, sugars, butter and peanut brittle. I think its in the October issue as well.

I made this recipe a couple days ago from the 2001 annual. No October issue yet so I look back to past Octobers for new recipes. I was very suprised at this recipe, I thought it would be a bit "off" with the addition of chopped bananas. I used Rome apples and golden brown sugar(I usually use dark brown sugar) I thought this recipe was good warm from the oven but after a day or two in the fridge the flavors are awesome. I just put a dollop of vanilla yogurt on top and had a very sinful breakfast! :D
