8 apples peeled and sliced (I recommend these for best taste and crispness: Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Jonagold, Winesap or Pippin)
2 teaspoons of Golden Fig Apple Pie Spice (Available www.GardenCountyCooking.com) or 1 ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon allspice, and ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¾ cup whole milk
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
¾ cup white granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla bean paste (Available at www.GardenCountyCooking.com)
1 ½ cups Bisquick, divided
1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold
Butter flavored cooking spray
Lightly spray bottom and sides of slow cooker with cooking spray. Toss apples in a large mixing bowl with Apple Pie Spice. Gently spoon apple mixture into slow cooker.
In a medium mixing bowl combine milk, softened butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla, and ½ cup of the Bisquick. Spoon over apples.
Combine the remaining Bisquick with the brown sugar. Cut cold butter into Bisquick mixture with a pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle this mixture on top.
- Cover and cook on low 6 to 7 hours or until apples are soft. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream. Serves 8
