Spiked Apple Crisp Shooters

Shooters and tapas seem to be ALL the rage in dining and entertaining - smaller portions but ALL the flavor! Here's a fabulous recipe idea for entertaining this fall ... wouldn't your guests get a kick out of these yummy apple crisp shooters? And get the kids involved by replacing the butterscotch schnapps with butterscotch ice cream topping.

Spiked Apple Crisp Shooters

Apple Crisp

4 medium tart apples, chopped (about 4 cups)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 cup butterscotch schnapps

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 pouch (1 lb 1.5 oz) Betty Crocker oatmeal cookie mix

Cream Layer and Topping

1 cup whipping cream

1 tablespoon butterscotch schnapps

1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Caramel topping, if desired

Heat oven to 375ºF. Spray bottom only of 8-inch square pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, toss apples, granulated sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and 1/2 cup schnapps. Spread in pan.

2 In medium bowl, mix melted butter and cookie mix. Spread on top of apples.

3 Bake 40 minutes.

4 Meanwhile, in chilled medium bowl, beat whipping cream, 1 tablespoon schnapps and the powdered sugar with electric mixer on medium-high speed until stiff peaks form.

5 To serve, alternately spoon warm apple crisp and cream mixture into small glasses. Top each with caramel topping. Serve immediately.
Makes 10 shooters!
