Probably more cobbler than pie, but whatever it is.....it is AMAZING. I love making this when we have company, because it makes the house smell wonderful. It is a great dessert at the Holidays, because it doesn't take up oven space when you have so many other things to cook. It is great with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
- Toss the apples in a large bowl with the cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice. Place in lightly greased crockpot.
- Combine milk, softened butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and the 1/2 cup Bisquik. Spoon over apples.
- Combine 1 cup Bisquik and brown sugar. Cut the cold butter into mixture until crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture over the top of the apple mixture.
- Cover and cook on low 6-7 hours.
Have not tried this recipe yet, but do make a similar recipe, but use 2 of the reduced sugar Quaker instant oatmeal packets(any flavor seems to work) instead of the Bisquick and eliminate the butter(fats). Then before putting on the lid to the pot, take about 4-5 paper towels and lay across the top of the pot, and then put the lid on as the towels will absorb the "steam" and make the "crust" a little more set. I also use the sugar free cans of pie filling to again cut down on the carbs and add lots and lots of cinnamon. I make this in 2 repeat layers, ending with the oatmeal. So Good for a diabetic recipe or just someone watching their carb intake!
I was a little doubtful that this would turn out, but took the chance since all the reviews were awesome. It looked a bit dry when put in the crock pot early Christmas morning, but turned out very flavorful and moist. The house smelled wonderful all day from this AND it freed up the oven for other items. DH loved this apple pie. I agree it was more like a cobbler, but I used a tall, thin crock pot. A wider pot may have set the crust more like a pie. Regardless, awesome recipe and this is a keeper for us.
This was good, but 6 hours on low burnt the edges and we felt like it was too mushy - like it needed something crunchy to be added on-top, something to give it a little more texture. It's also a bit sweet for us.
