Apple Pie in a Bowl

For a young married couple, Mr. Thomas and I sure act like senior citizens. 
How so? 
Mr. Thomas leaves early for work every morning before the sun comes up
so we go to bed before most toddlers do... about 8:30. 
Going to bed that early leads to us eating at what's considered happy hour.
(and we're not eating early for the great prices) 
After dinner we usually watch some recorded ridiculous "reality" show like Gold Rush
(insert eye roll here) 
or even more "real and intelligent" Alaska State Troopers,
(Mr. T's TV taste is truly deserving of an entire post in itself) 
and my attention drifts to my favorite food blogs. 

Come a fast forwarded commercial break,
Mr. T leans over and wants to see what's happening on my little screen.
The moment his eyes fall upon some tasty treat he pops on his best puppy dog eyes
and asks when we can have a dessert as delicious as the one we're looking at...
I admit, I'm a sucker for his big baby blues.

As he finishes absorbing America's greatest intelligence, 
I see what I've got in the fridge and make due. 
This little recipe came from a "made due" dessert night. 
Guess what? 
You can "make due" this one too! 

I know it looks like a bowl of oatmeal, or cereal, or granola... 
But underneath is a sneaky, surprise, apple pie layer!
