    next is to finish them in the canner.
    take them out of the slow cooker at about 2.5 to 3 hours
    the canning process should finish the cooking process.

    Mmmm I LOVE tres leches cake, but it's a fairly involved recipe to make. This looks like a simple and delicious alternative! Thank you!
