Carmel Bourbon Apple Crisp


There is nothing better when you realize you have all the ingredients in your home to make something yummy and unexpected.  I bought apples for dipping in caramel last week for a ladies night and didn’t use them because of this wonderful bug that has been going around.  So, when unpacking this weeks groceries, I noticed about six apples that needed to be used before they went into the trash.  Throwing food away makes me feel terrible, so those apples had to be used.  

I really was not in the mood for going out to get more items at the food store since I had just gone, so I turned to my mother’s trusty go-to dessert, apple crisp.  Apple crisp is delicious, but I wanted it a little bit different, so when I came upon the recipe for these shooters by The Boys Club, I was in. With caramel in the cupboard, why not use that as well?

The crisp was made in a casserole dish instead of the shooters and used bourbon instead of rum because in this home we like bourbon better.  No matter the liquor or the dish, this is a recipe to make your stomach and sweet tooth happy.
