Easy Pie Made
In A Slow Cooker

There seems to be a big misconception out there that pies have to be made in a pie plate. We're here to squash that myth, just in time for Thanksgiving too! Who wants to spend all morning baking pies when you could be eating, drinking and vegging out? Instead of baking one in a pie dish, why not try making one in a slow cooker with this fabulous recipe?

This is probably one of the easiest pies you'll ever make. Just dump your ingredients into a slow cooker, give em' a little stir and let the magic happen! The end result is a mix between traditional pie and custard with a perfect biscuit and crust-like topping. It's absolutely to die for. Plus you can eat it directly from the pot with a spoon, no plate required!

Hi Helen! I'd say 3 - 5 quarts would work best.

Hey Sandy! yes, the same!

Does the rum extract equal same amount as rum: 1Tbsp rum=1Tbsp rum extract?

Anne October 08, 2013 | 3:11 PM

Loved this (used rum extract) but wanted a more crumbly top. Ideas?

Hi Annie!! I think it would turn out great! :) Just be sure to double all of the ingredients equally.

Annie November 09, 2012 | 12:25 PM

Can the recipe be doubled? Would it still turn out OK?

I made this dish over the weekend and just left out the rum without substituting anything for it and it was still great! It was sweet, but not too sweet. I also recommend adding a little extra bisquick to the top and sprinkling with cinnamon

I made this over the weekend. It was delicious! Wasn't the prettiest looking dish, but it tasted fantastic. I would recommend adding vanilla extract or some extra sugar to sweeten it up. I also wish I would have served it with ice cream instead of whipped cream. The cold mixed with the hot dessert would be divine.

Great idea about the rum extract! I want to make this but we're not rum drinkers and I don't want to spend a bunch of money on something that will go to waste. Thanks!

Kathy - You could probably use rum extract for the non-alcoholic, we don't use the real stuff either. Just a little bit goes a long way, and it's really good!

claire November 01, 2012 | 1:48 PM

Hey Kathy! You can use cider or more milk! It's there really for the great spicy flavor.

Kathy November 01, 2012 | 12:35 PM

Is there a substitute for the rum...something non-alcoholic?
