Slow Cooker Apple Pie

Updated on June 28, 2014

Just a couple of side notes

When making this recipe, I use whatever apples I have on hand, and so the tastes and flavors can be altered by this. I do prefer however to use the following key point no matter what:

  1. Even split between tart and sweet apples
  2. Raw Sugar
  3. Gluten free flour mix or Gluten Free Bisquick

Amazing and Simple

What can be more "American" than homemade apple pie? Granted we all probably cringed (despite our amusement) when the classic was defaced in a movie, but that never devalued the enjoyment many feel when delving into a wonderful slice of apple pie with a touch of vanilla ice cream on top! The idea of fresh baked apple pie is in many ways an American staple; unfortunately, time has become hectic and it is a rarity when we can find the time to make this wonderful treat. Sure, there are version in the freezer section of most grocery stores, but can we really say that the frozen is better than a true fresh baked? Personally, I don't feel it is!

Recognizing this, and having a sweet tooth, and love of apple pies, I would begin to seek out a way to make the perfect apple pie, with less time and effort, but still just as delicious as one that I slaved a couple of hours over trying to make. The following is the culmination of what I discovered to be the perfect solution in my search. Another reason for my search was to uncover something that would allow me to enjoy this treat, without gluten. This is perhaps one of the most difficult aspects of trying to perfect this recipe. Bearing this in mind, you can alter the recipe if you want to keep the gluten in your recipe, but I have a slight allergy, and plus when I am refraining from the use of gluten, issues with weight have been less likely to appear. So, this recipe is an attempt to remain faithful to the removal of gluten free.

Food for Thought

Like so many recipes I have altered and played around with, I am always seeking a way to make a much enjoyed recipe that can be prepared in a slow cooker so I have more time to do other things. This recipe is not a replacement for a true "American Apple Pie" but it does help save time and makes an excellent substitute for everyone to enjoy. Any variations and changes you want to make are encouraged because the kitchen is a place to experiment and have fun, while also working to create something to satisfy your taste and the tastes of those your meal and shared with. Everyone may have a new addition, or choose to leave something out, which is perfectly acceptable. Please do or don't. I normally start with a recipe and try to follow directions the first time to uncover what I think could make it better, be it something is missing or you need to add something. You may want to apply this idea to this recipe yourself.

When it comes to apples, I use what is available and normally do not try to go buy new or a mixture. I love apples as a snack, especially with peanut butter, so I always have several on hand. Occassionally, when I crave something "sweet" I will use this recipe and every time I may not use the exact same types of apples. The recipe I am listing, however, is with the apples I do prefer in this dish. If you don't have them on hand, don't worry, try what you do have on hand out.

Giving You Something to Thinking About

One Final Note

As mentioned, I do prefer the Gluten-Free products, and this recipe was one which definitely did not disappoint. I elected to find the video about the intial introduction of the product. It is present on shelves in the local grocery stores within the area where I live, but sometimes it can be hard to find. It is normally located in your local store in the same area as Bisquick. I will mentioned the local Lowes Food only had the Heart Smart and not the gluten-free so I did have to go an extra few minutes to locate it, but this was not that big of a deall. I am one of the people who was truly excited to learn this product was now availalbe and I encourage everyone to try it at least once!
