6 cups sliced peeled tart apples (about 5 large)
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
1 package (3-1/2 ounces) cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding mix
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter
Vanilla ice cream, optional
Place apples in a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, pudding mix and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over the apples.
Cover and cook on low for 5 to 5-1/2 hours or until apples are tender. Serve with ice cream if desired. Yield: 6 servings.
