Crockpot Apple Crisp y’all!!! And it really does “crisp”! I love the time of year when apples are in season! Here in the Great Lakes, apples are plentiful in the Fall and our family makes good use of them!
Sometimes, it’s the simple recipes that are the best, and Crockpot Apple Crisp is one of them. It’s delicious, fills your home with a heavenly scent and is amazing with vanilla ice cream.
The cool thing about making in the crockpot is that I can set it all up and walk away for a few hours. And it really does “crisp” in the slow cooker!
For Crockpot Apple Crisp, You’ll need:
a 6-qt crock pot
14 medium-sized apples
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup flour
about 6 ‘pats’ of real butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup flour
1 cup oatmeal
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 stick real butter
In a large bowl, mix together oats, brown sugar, cinnamon, and 3/4 cup flour.
Cut 1/2 cup butter in with a pastry blender, use your fingers if necessary to incorporate the butter throughout the oat mixture.
When you’re finished it should look like the picture above. Set aside to use as your topping.
Next, peel, core and slice your apples. Place them in the crockpot. Sprinkle with about a 1/2 cup of sugar and a 1/4 cup of flour. Gently stir the apples to coat them with the sugar and flour.
Top the apples with about 6 ‘pats’ of butter.
Take your oat mixture and press it over top of the apples. Put the lid fully on your crockpot and set it to high for a 3 hour cook time, low for a 4-5 hour cook time.
In the last hour of your cooking, vent the lid like the picture above… doing so will ‘crisp’ your topping. When it’s to your liking, it’s done! (Mine took about an hour after venting)
Serve as is, or with a scoop of vanilla ice!
