German Apple Dessert
Yesterday I was sitting in the eye doctor with my daughter, and flipping through a local magazine that is in waiting rooms around town.
Lots of times they have good sounding recipes, but I forget about them, and never make them.
But yesterday, this one leaped out at me.
German Apple Dessert
I was making my Little King Salad for dinner that night, per my daughter’s request, and thought,
We’re having salad, might as well have dessert??
So I whipped it up when we got home, and we did!!
With a little side of vanilla ice cream!
This got RAVE reviews from my family.
My husband said (with his mouth full) “This is really good” about 6 times!
Great alternative to an apple pie.
