Apple Pie in the Slow Cooker

What?  Can this be right—cook an apple pie in a slow cooker?  You bet, and not only is this possible, it is easy and delicious. Just try it one time and you will be hooked.  If you took a survey, apple pie would be the number one favorite pie on the list.  There are so many different ways to make an apple pie.  I personally like them all.  But this recipe is the easiest.  To be correct, it is probably more apple cobbler than apple pie, but just as delicious.  It will be  just amazing to walk in and smell it cooking.  It is great for family dinners, holidays, pot lucks, and just for you!


The original recipe calls for tart apples, but I like the sweeter apples.  So just use your favorite apples that you and your family like and it will turn out delicious.  The only thing that might take a little time is the slicing and peeling of apples.  I have done this so many times; I could do it in my sleep, so it isn’t a big deal to me.  But if this is more labor intensive than you may want, there are a few different types of kitchen gadgets that can help you with this process.  Just check out your local kitchen store, grocery store, or go online.  Most of them work pretty well and are worth the investment.  You will use it over and over again.

Most slow cooker deserts are cooked in smaller crockpots, but this dessert works well in a 6 quart slow cooker.

  • Toss 8 apples, peeled and sliced in a large bowl with
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon allspice
  • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg

Place apple mixture  in a light greased slow cooker.

In a bowl combine the following ingredients:

  • ¾ cup milk
  • 2 tablespoon softened butter
  • ¾ cup sugar

Pour this mixture over apples in the slow cooker.

Combine

Cut 3 tablespoons cold butter in the above mixture until crumbly

Sprinkle the above mixture in the slow cooker on top of pie mixture.

Cover and cook on low for 7 hours.

Serve topped with ice cream, whipped cream, dessert topping, or a piece of cheese.

If you are really watching your sugar intake for medical reason, there is no reason you can’t enjoy this scrumptious dessert by substituting 3 tablespoons raw honey and 1 tablespoon lemon juice for the sugar.

If you want a super shortcut, substitute apple pie filling for the apple mixture that is first put into the slow cooker.

This can be a breakfast by substituting oatmeal for the Bisquick.

This can also become an apple crisp dessert by substituting ¾ cup oatmeal and ¾ cup flour for the Bisquick.
