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.
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!
