    Can you imagine the aroma?

    Apple Pie Bread Pudding

    Nonstick cooking spray
    3 eggs, beaten
    2 cups milk, half-and-half, or light cream
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 21-ounce can chunky apple pie filling (more fruit)
    6-1/2 cups cinnamon-raisin bread cut into 1/2-inch cubes, dried* (4-1/2
    cups dry)
    Whipped cream or vanilla ice cream (optional)

    1. Lightly coat the inside of a 3-1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker with
    nonstick cooking spray; set aside.

    2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, and sugar. Gently stir
    in pie filling and bread cubes. Pour mixture into the prepared cooker.

    3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 3 hours until a knife inserted
    near center comes out clean (mixture will be puffed). Remove liner from
    cooker, if possible, or turn off cooker. Let stand, uncovered, for 30 to
    45 minutes to cool slightly before serving (pudding will fall as it

    4. To serve, spoon bread pudding into dessert dishes. If desired, top
    each serving with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice
    cream. Makes 6 servings.

    *Note: To make 4 -/2 cups dry bread cubes, you'll need 8 or 9 slices
    fresh bread. Spread bread cubes in a single layer in a 15x10x1-inch
    baking pan. Bake, uncovered, in a 300 degree F oven for 10 to 15 minutes
    or until dry, stirring twice; cool.
