Slow Cooker Apple Pie Filling

Slow Cooker Apple Pie Filling by Custom Taste
Who says the taste of apple pie is only meant for American Independence Day and the fall season. Um, NO ONE. I have been dabbling in home-made pop-tarts for Mr. CT's breakfasts and he said that after lemon filling his next most liked was apple pie. Since we had a load of apples and no lemons I decided to give it a go. This filling is super easy and does not require heating your kitchen up with an oven. It can also be used for anything. I have used in pop-tarts and in a sandwich for a sweet treat. Feel free to eat like apple sauce but the cinnamon might over power your palette, simply thin it out a little with milk or juice.
