Lately I like to experiment with different flavors and put things together that you would not think to put together because the recipe you have is tried and true. Things that you would not actually think of doing. I see a lot of recipes on JAP and I think I bet that would taste really good like this. Anything that makes life easier I say go for it. I love working with cake mixes for crust and toppings so I decided to try a cake mix with apple crisp. Spice cake sounded good. I went to the store and brought the apples and I saw honeycrisp apples there and thought yeah lets add some honey to this topping also. The results were amazing and if you try it you will love it if you like apple crisp. Be sure to make a lot because mine disappeared.
