Hi everyone! This is Kristin from Dizzy Busy and Hungry, back at Memories by the Mile for my monthly post. I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about spring, and all through the summer, is the amazing produce. Everything is starting to come into season, the farmer’s markets are opening up after the long, cold winter, and the fruits and vegetables are just so fresh and delicious.
Today I am sharing with you my recipe for Slow Cooker Apple Pie. I know apples are usually associated with autumn, but our apples here are just as fresh and good as they are in the fall, and the kids love to have them as snacks, so I buy a ton of them every week. And I love to use my slow cooker year-round, too. Especially in the hot summer months, I prefer to use the slow cooker instead of turning on the oven. Yes, my slow cooker gets quite a workout through every season!
Now, I have a confession to make. I have never made a fruit pie. Not ever! Gasp! Why not, you ask? Well, honestly, I am not much of a dessert person, and when I do put some effort into making a dessert, it is almost always chocolate!
So why did I decide to try to make an apple pie in the crock pot? No idea. But I am glad I did! And now I will share this delicious recipe with you!
Note that this isn’t a traditional apple pie with a distinct crust on the bottom and the top, so you might feel that calling it apple pie is a misnomer. But, it really does taste just like apple pie! And it is so easy to make. I didn’t even peel the apples! I just threw everything in the slow cooker, and a few hours later I had delicious hot apple pie. It was practically magic!
Bonus: Warm or cold, the leftovers are amazing for a snack or even for breakfast!
Thanks to all of you and to Wanda Ann for your hospitality today! It is always a pleasure to post on Memories by the Mile. I hope you will stop by my blog, Dizzy Busy and Hungry, and check out some of the other family-friendly recipes I have! You can also follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, or Google+.
