apple pecan coconut crisp

Words have fled and filleted me lately. Here’s what helped:

Apple Pecan Coconut Crisp. I’ve decided to call this a crisp and not a crumble. Consider yourself spared from an onslaught of rhyming…a jumble of bumble. You’re thanking me now, huh?

Oats and pecans give the topping crunch. Honeycrisp apples bake into a bubbling, lightly sweet syrup. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

Enough said.

  2. There you are! I was wondering where you fled to. LOL. Yummy looking crisp — I prefer to call them that too. And honeycrisp apples are so delicious, I have a couple chillin’ in my fridge right now. Makes for such a delightful snack in the middle of the day. :-)

    I love anything with apples be it a crisp or a crumble. Have actually been making variations of this since we’ve come to France also using pears and peaches. BTW, what is the difference b/n a crumble and a crisp? I once heard a fruit dish like this described as a “GRUNT”! As in “Blueberry Grunt”.

      I did a little research on crumble versus crisp when I was naming this recipe. Consensus says: crisp has crunchy elements in the topping and crumble has…well…crumbly topping i.e., flour, sugar, seasoning. I went with crisp because of the oats and pecans I included in my recipe. And, like I said, I wanted to spare us all from what was definitely gonna be a Seussian style blog post.

  4. I just bought some honeycrisps and after seeing this recipe I wish I had bought more. This does look delicious and I like the flavors in there-yum! Have a great weekend.
