Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode
Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode. I’d be lying to you if I said I wasn’t sitting here in my kitchen, eating this dessert, trying to get some writing inspiration. Because, guess what? I’m sitting here, in my kitchen, eating Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode with a
large [huuuuge] dollop of vanilla ice cream on top. Sometimes, you just have to eat your inspiration in order to get it out on the page.
My kitchen window overlooks our side yard where we have four apple trees, growing Gala and Granny Smith apples. In a few weeks, I will be knee-deep in apples. These trees produce enough apples for my wonderful little family of four to pick from, as well as my mother, who typically stops by to fill a few bags as well. These apples are not only great for making Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode, but also great for baking pies, breads, baked oatmeal and making homemade apple sauce. Our four little trees yield so many apples, it’s almost too much.
The best part (aside from the taste, of course) is just how darn easy this is to throw together. I made this after work one evening last week before dinner and few hours later, my husband and I were sitting on the couch, each with a bowl of Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode. IT’S THAT EASY. Just a couple of simple ingredients and voila…a delicious dessert will be yours.
Slow Cooker Apple Pie a la Mode is nothing short of dreamy apple pie without all the guilt of an actual apple pie. It’s crust-less; almost like a cobbler, but big on taste. This is a recipe your whole family will love.
