Years ago, we were without electricity for nine days during an ice storm, but I was able run the slow cooker from our generator. The situation called for a treat, and this has been a favorite ever since.


  • 8 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • Optional: Vanilla or cinnamon ice cream


  1. In a large bowl, combine the apples, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Spoon into a greased 3-qt. slow cooker. Whisk the eggs, cream and vanilla; pour over apple mixture. Combine the cracker crumbs, pecans and butter; sprinkle over top.
  2. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours or until apples are tender. Serve warm, with ice cream if desired.

Test Kitchen tips
  • Choose an apple that will hold up to cooking. Granny Smith, Honeycrisp or Jonagold are good options.
  • You can use cinnamon graham cracker crumbs or crushed gingersnaps in the place of the regular graham cracker crumbs.
