Slow-Cooker Apple Pie




One of my husband's favorite dessert is Apple Pie and I make it quite often!  So when I saw Slow Cooker Apple Pie in a cookbook, I knew I had to try it, however I did change the recipe to his liking.  This recipe can be tossed into the slow cooker and you don't have to worry about it at all...love that!  Once it was done he had one serving with whipped cream and the other one he put in a bowl with some milk.  He said both were good, but he liked it better with the milk because that's how he eats his apple pie.  This recipe was so simple to make and a great way to make apple pie if you're in a hurry!  

  

Ingredients are as follows:

8 C apples (peeled, cored and sliced)
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
2 eggs (beaten)
3/4 C milk
1 Tbsp. vanilla
1 C sugar
5 Tbsp. butter  (softened)
1 1/2 C biscuit baking mix (divided in half)
1/3 C brown sugar  
1/2 tsp. cinnamon 


Directions:

Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray.

Toss the apples, 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon and nutmeg together. 


Place these into the greased slow cooker.


Whisk together eggs, milk, vanilla, sugar, 2 Tbsp. butter and 3/4 C baking mix.


Pour over the apples.


Combine brown sugar, the remaining 3/4 C baking mix and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon together; cut in the 3 Tbsp. butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. 


Sprinkle over the apples and batter; do not stir!


Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours (I checked mine at 6 hours and it was done)Spoon some out, top with whipped cream (or place in a bowl with some milk) and enjoy!

  12. YUM!!! This definitely caught my attention. I love apple pie and the thought of it in a slow cooker sounds amazing can't wait till I have a reason to give this a try. I made a chocolate molten cake in the crockpot and that turned out amazing too. This looks so good!!! :) Thank you for sharing.

  25. Has anybody tried it? I am just wondering if it comes out mushy?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine wasn't mushy, but I took mine out at 6 hours. If you wanted it to be firmer you could always check it around 5 hours and go from there :)

    I loved the slow cooker apple Pie except the topping wasn't crunchy like in a regular oven. Isn't it suppose to be crunchy/crispy? Any suggestions.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. The topping for this isn't supposed to be crispy; the moisture inside the slow cooker keeps it moist :)

  27. It all depends on the size of your apples, however I would say around 8-10 apples :)

  32. I have this in my crock pot right now. is it going to come out dry? How exactly do you tell if its done ? It's been 6hours now in the pot-I feel very much like a Magoo right now. Smells good

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Mine did not come out dry at all! You can tell if it's done by piercing a fork into one of the apples, if it's soft, then it's done :) When you serve it, put it in a bowl and add some milk to it...delicious!
