    I love making this treat for friends during the peak of apple season. I plan a quick soup-and-bread meal, so we can get right to the dessert!
    -- Libby Walp, Chicago, Illinois

    Prep: 15 Min.
    Cook: 2 Hours
    Makes: 8 Servings

    3 pounds tart apples, peeled and sliced
    10 slices cinnamon-raisin bread, cubed
    ¾ cup packed brown sugar
    ½ cup butter, melted
    1 teaspoon almond extract
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground cardamom
    ⅛ teaspoon salt


    1 cup heavy whipping cream
    2 tablespoons sugar
    1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
    ½ teaspoon almond extract

    1. Place apples in an ungreased 4- or 5-qt. slow cooker. In a large bowl, combine the bread, brown sugar, butter, extract, cinnamon, cardamom and salt; spoon over apples. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until apples are tender.

    2. In a small bowl, beat cream until it begins to thicken. Add the sugar, lemon peel and extract; beat until soft peaks form. Serve with apple mixture.
