Sometimes a fuck up can turn out light years better than the original intent. I had in my mind I was going to make these DELICIOUS apple cookies, that I was then going to smother in caramel. These cookies didn’t like my idea. I look at them halfway through and they have spread themselves out all along the bottom of the cookie sheet. Hmm….I am not going to let these cookies get out of becoming a delicious treat. What can I do? Boom, ideas and intuition kick in. Let them finish baking. Crumble them up. Toss and saute a fresh apple. Lovingly sprinkle the crumble over the top. My friend has been asking for a crumble and these cookies have manifested into one. It was perfect. So next time you feel discouraged because something didn’t turn out perfectly, dig deep. Let it be an opportunity to be creative. Let it be a chance to make something even better. Don’t give up just because something turns challenging. Turn apples into an apple crisp.
Accidental Apple Crisp
- 1/8 cup homemade apple sauce (I put a bunch of apples in the crock pot with a tablespoon of maple and cinnamon)
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp sea salt
- 1 1/4 cup almond meal
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 batch of Urban Poser Caramel
- 1 more diced apple
Let’s Make it Happen: mix apple sauce, honey, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, almond meal, and vanilla. Drop on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes at 300. Saute a diced apple in a little coconut oil, with cinnamon and nutmeg. Ooh maybe toss in a bit of balsamic vinegar. Place in a bowl. Crumble the cookie. Sprinkle of the top of the apple. Drizzle caramel over the top.
