Recipe: Slow cooker apple crisp
Posted on 10/22/2019
Apple crisp in a bowlClassic apple crisp is a favorite fall dessert. Try making this cozy, cinnamon-spiced treat in a slow cooker instead of the oven. It's amazingly good for minimal work.


8 apples, peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
½ cup packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
¼ teaspoon salt

For the crisp topping:
1 cup old-fashioned oats
¾ cup white whole wheat flour
¼ cup packed light brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon salt
½ cup cold unsalted butter, cut into cubes

Ice cream, for serving (optional)


Make the apple mixture:
Place sliced apples in the slow cooker. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Stir. 

Make the crisp topping:
Combine oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir until well combined. Using your fingertips, work the butter into the oat mixture until the mixture starts to clump together.

Stir the apple mixture one more time and then spread apples out into an even layer. Sprinkle on the crisp topping.

Cook the apple crisp:
Cook on high for 2 hours or on low for 3 –3½ hours, until apples are soft. Turn off heat and let stand for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour before serving (keeping the lid on). Serve with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
