|Slow Cooker Apples in Bourbon Custard|
- 6 small-medium apples, spiral cut and cored (you'll need one of those apple corer/peeler/slicer things or you're in for more work than you want)
This thing. You can find them on Amazon for under $20, or at Pampered Chef for $1,200.
- 1/2 cup chopped nuts (we used pecans, but I imagine walnuts or cashews would be delightful)
- 1/2 cup sultanas (that's fancy-talk for gold raisins)
- 1 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
- 1/4 cup Benchmark Brown Sugar Liquor (if you don't want the booze, just use an equal amount of brown sugar. If you can't find Benchmark, you can mix about 2 tablespoons brown sugar with 1/4 cup bourbon for roughly the same effect)
- 1/8 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- If you haven't already done so, run your apples through that apple corer/peeler/slicer thing. Do your best to get the apple off the spindle whole. You will be scored on artistic merit.
- Spray a slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Place the apples in a single layer on the bottom (we were able to barely fit 6 apples in a 2.5 quart cooker)
- Mix the chopped nuts and raisins. Fill the middle of each apple where you removed the core.
- In a medium bowl (you can use a large bowl if you'd like. I wouldn't recommend using a small bowl unless you like making a mess), mix sweetened condensed milk, honey, bourbon and cinnamon. Pour mixture evenly over the apples.
- Cook on LOW for 3 hours or until apples start to get tender and liquid takes on a custard-like consistency.
