Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

Mixture 1:
3/4 cup sugar
2 tbsp + 1 1/2 tsp butter
3/4 cup evaporated milk
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp cinnamon

Combine the sugar and butter until crumbly.  Add the milk, flour, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon.  Pour the mixture into a slow cooker or crockpot that has been lightly sprayed with cooking spray.

Mixture 2:
2 cans (16-oz each) tart cherries and juice
1 tsp red food coloring
2 cups sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter, melted

Combine all mixture 2 ingredients together until sugar is thoroughly dissolved.  Pour over mixture 1 in the cooker.  During cooking mixture 1 will rise to the top.

Place lid on cooker and cook on high 3 to 4 hours until the dough is solid and set.

Serve warm topped with vanilla ice cream for a real treat!
