Hi folks! It’s Jennifer from The Chronicles of Home and I’m back with a dessert mash-up that hits all the right summer-to-fall transition notes: snickerdoodle apple-peach crisp!
There are still some fresh local peaches to be found where I live and I hold onto every last moment of my favorite fruit season before it disappears for another 10 months. I just can’t get enough fresh peaches when they’re abundant. But I’m also starting to feel that crisp note in the air and all the mountains of apples are tempting me too. So what is a seasonal-fruit-loving girl to do?? Mix ‘em together!
I took my favorite cookie – brown butter snickerdoodles (seriously, the caramely goodness is kind of outrageous – and used it as a crust for a traditional crisp. The result? A chewy, buttery, cinnamony, caramely cookie crust base for a juicy apple-peach topping with crumbly oat crisp scattered across the fruit crags. It’s a marriage made in heaven.
There’s not much I don’t want to add a snickerdoodle crust to now!
I’ve been spending a lot of time this past month working on my daughter’s “big girl” room. Come see some of the projects I’ve completed (below) and stop by next week for a full reveal!
I’m Jennifer from The Chronicles of Home, where I share DIY and home decorating projects as well as lots of yummy food. My truest loves are my husband and two young daughters, but I’ve also fallen for salvaging, refinishing, & reupholstering old furniture and building furniture from the frame up. I have a sweet tooth to be reckoned with and love testing new desserts, though most of the time I eat and feed my family delicious, interesting, healthy food. I’m drawn to beautiful fabric, great books, anything kelly green, pasta made from scratch, dark chocolate, and brown butter. I’m so thrilled to be a member of the I Heart Naptime creative team!
