    8 servings


  • 1 cup water
  • 6 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
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional


  • Add 1 cup water to a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. In a large bowl, combine apples, sugar, flour and cinnamon. Spoon into a greased 1-1/2-qt. souffle or round baking dish. In a small bowl, whisk eggs, cream and vanilla; pour over apple mixture. In another bowl, combine cracker crumbs, pecans and butter; sprinkle over top.
  • Loosely cover dish with foil to prevent moisture from getting into the dish. Place on a trivet with handles; lower into pressure cooker. Lock lid; make sure vent is closed. Select manual setting; adjust pressure to high and set time for 12 minutes. When finished cooking, allow pressure to naturally release for 10 minutes, then quick-release any remaining pressure according to manufacturer's directions. 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.
