A few weeks ago, I did a segment with Fox45 on Crockpot cooking (here) where I shared three recipes, one of which is below. Now that Fall is here and October is "Apple Month" there's no better time to whip up this tasty treat than this weekend!
- 6 chopped apples - I used Honeycrisp
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot
- 2 tablespoons apple pie spice
- 1 tablespoon apple butter
- 5 tablespoons regular butter
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- Dash of salt
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- Place chopped apples in the bottom of a slow cooker. Add apple butter and lemon juice and stir to coat the apples.
- Mix together the corn starch, 1 tablespoon of apple pie spice and 1/4 cup white sugar. Mix well and pour mixture over the apples and stir to coat.
- Sprinkle walnuts over the apples and mix well.
- In another bowl, mix flour, brown sugar, second tablespoon of apple pie spice and salt. Cut in butter using a pastry cutter or form until mixture is crumbly like sand. Sprinkle the topping over the apple mixture until they are all covered.
- Set slow cooker to low and cook for about 4 hours, or until apples are tender and soft.
I made this overnight and set my automatic timer to shut off after 4-hours. I woke up to the house smelling delicious! The dessert does not have a crust and best resembles the look and texture of baked apples, with the crumbles and sweetness of a cobbler. Give it a try and let me know what you think. It's a perfect hands-off dessert that goes well with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Bon appetit!
