Nutty Apple Streusel Dessert
6 c. sliced, peeled tart apples
1 1/4 tsps ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 c. milk
2 Tbs butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 c. biscuit/baking mix
TOPPING:1 c. biscuit/baking mix1/3 c. packed brown sugar3 Tbs cold butter1/2 c. sliced almonds (I think I had walnuts, so used those)Ice cream or whipped cream, optional
HOW TO: In a large bowl, toss apples with cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg. Place in a greased 3-qt slow cooker. In a mixing bowl, combine the milk, butter, sugar, eggs, vanilla and baking mix. Spoon over apples.
For topping, combine biscuit mix and brown sugar in a bowl; cut in butter until crumbly. Add almonds; sprinkle over apples. Cover and cook on low for 6-7 hours or until the apples are tender. (I think mine was done in 3-4 hours, so it may depend on your slow cooker). Serve with ice cream or whipped cream, if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
I hope to do some stampin' tonight...{big Friday night since hubby is out of town!!} ;) So check back tomorrow for something new!!
