Before we get started, I want to show you what Mr. Picky Eater and I have made for Rocket – he loves that little Cozy Coupe so much he hardly wants to get out to come into the house. The little Schooner on back was an afterthought that turned out perfectly! If you want instructions go HERE.
I was viewing my newsfeed on Face Book yesterday when I saw this really cool recipe: Crock Pot Pumpkin Pie. It’s from Family Fresh Meals and if you click on the link, you can see the original recipe. I changed mine up enough that I feel like it is adapted more than slightly so I changed the name and don’t mind posting my recipe in its entirety. And it is SO worth it! For those who prefer something different or maybe someone who hasn’t perfected the art of pie making – this is for you!
Slow Cooker Pumpkin Cobbler
1 Fifteen oz. Can Pumpkin Puree
8 oz. evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
1 Cup brown sugar
½ Cup Angry Orchard Hard Cider Crisp Apple – (if you don’t want to use hard cider just use apple juice)
1 Cup Bisquick divided into 1/3 cup bowls
6 Tablespoons crushed graham crackers
2 eggs, beaten
4 Tablespoons butter, sliced into smaller pats
1 Tablespoon Pumpkin Pie Spice (or you can use ½ Tablespoon cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon cloves, ¼ teaspoon nutmeg)
Get out your slow cooker and spray it down with non-stick spray.
In each of the bowls of Bisquick, remove 2 Tablespoons of it and replace with 2 Tablespoons of crushed Graham Crackers.
In a medium bowl, put in the pumpkin, all the Angry Orchard or Apple Juice, 1 of the 1/3 cup bowls of Bisquick/graham crackers, evaporated milk, spices, eggs, salt, vanilla, and brown sugar – mixing until well blended.
Pour pumpkin mixture into slow cooker.
Sprinkle 2nd bowl of Bisquick/Graham Cracker over top of Pumpkin Mixture.
Toss around the pats of butter on top of that.
Finally, sprinkle the 3rd bowl of Bisquick/Graham Cracker on top.
Set to low and cooker for 4 hours – which is what worked for me. The original recipe called for some different items than mine and also said to cook on low for 6-7 hours but mine would have been burnt had I done that so start checking after 4 and go to 7 if you need to.
Let it cool completely, whip up some whipped cream for the top and sprinkle some more graham crackers on to. It is deeee – lish!! There is a lovely apple undertone with the pumpkin that is refreshing!

That is the cutest little ride ever, what a racer 😀
I bet it really worked up the little guy’s appetite for your delicious cobbler!

It did! Thanks CCU!
Loving the addition of the cider. Cute wheels but might look good in an orange color, too. LOL
Ha! That’s what Lawyer Boy and Minnie Mouse said! We told them when they had a baby, we would make one! 🙂
Love the coupe – what fun.
I’m not a big fan of slow cookers but this recipe intrigues me. Also hope I can find the cider in our area.
The Cider is not local so you should be able to find it!
Well, you know I agree with the comment above on how nice it would look in orange 🙂 And you know how much I love the slow cooker…my mom’s brother may come for Thanksgiving and I may need to make this for dessert!
🙂 Yes, I know you are a Pokes fan – and I’ve seen several versions of those on Pinterest! I know your family will like this recipe – it will go well with your mom’s chicken and noodles!

Rocket and his coupe are simply adorable! When I was a kid, I really really really wanted a power wheels Jeep. Do you remember those? They actually drove around and you could have a friend in the passenger seat. If I could get my hands on one now, I’d cram by 30-something-year-old body in without shame. Kelli, I’m in awe over this cobbler – I can’t believe it was made in a slow cooker! I’ve been using mine like mad lately so I’m adding this to my must-make list. This looks delicious!
Yes! My daughter had one – my parents had a ranch and so she got to run all over it with that thing. I can’t tell you how many times it was left in the pasture because her batteries ran down! Thanks for the compliment on the cobbler!!
I didn’t see the apple cider added in the instructions. But I figured it went in on the first step. But then in the last picture it shows a bottle with the cap still on beside the end product. Soooo is it to drink really???? Lol when the holidays are looming down on us, and we all have that one relative that knows we can’t cook anything looking over our shoulder. Constantly saying “are you sure that’s right?” I just want to make sure I got it. Thanks.
Hi Gigi – so sorry it has taken nearly 24 hours to get back to you but we were driving in a veritable flood yesterday and it took about 5 hours more than we anticipated! Yes, you add the cider in the first step – thanks so much for letting me know because I was able to edit the recipe for everyone! Please drop by again any time!
