Apple pie for dinner. Really, can you think of anything better?
This was a wonderful dish that we all enjoyed very much.
This was also a super simple recipe! I so love my crockpot! (I've mentioned that before, haven't I?)
I doubled the original recipe as I happened to have 8 pork chops and I like to have leftover for lunches.
The only problem was the apple part didn't fair well in the refrigerator. The next day it was quite soft and while it still tasted okay, the texture was off. So next time I will just make enough for dinner and skip the prospect of leftovers.
I used all splenda as the sweetener to cut the calories a lot. You certainly could use sugar but the calorie count will be much higher.
