This sweet treat is a cozy way to warm up winter nights. Sliced apples are sprinkled with a tasty topping made with oats, brown sugar and butterscotch pudding mix. Served with ice cream, the dessert is always well received. —Jolanthe Erb, Harrisonburg, Virginia

"Very easy and very good! Love having the ease of a crockpot dessert and the house smelled yummy! Served with ice cream but I am sure it would be good plain or with whipped topping :-)"

"We love this recipe! I work afternoons so I usually make dinner before I leave, this is a great way for my family to have dessert too. I doubled the topping and served with ice cream. Everyone loved it."

"I live in Mexico, here is difficult to get cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding mix, what can I use instead?
