Ontario Apple Pie Shooters
Recipe developed by Centre For Food, Durham College
Serves 12 as shots or 4 as cocktail size.
Chef Tip: Can be made without the whiskey. Can be made ahead of time and will hold in the fridge for up to 1 week. Apples do not need to be peeled, but you can if you like. If whiskey is added at the beginning of cooking, much of the alcohol will boil off.
