Putting together a dessert can sometimes be a complex and time consuming venture. Courtney Gregory and Corry Turner, two students from the Culinary Arts & Hospitality Management program at LCC, have a recipe that has an elegant look while not requiring a lot of ingredients or cooking time.

Apple Trifle

  • ¼ granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons butter
