Y’all, the more I cook, the more I love it. The only downfall is having to clean all of the messy dishes afterwards! (Shoutout to my amazing husband who usually cleans them for me.)
Being Super Bowl Sunday yesterday, I decided to try an apple crisp in the crockpot. If you know me, you know I love my crockpot recepies. This recipe seemed easy enough and super yummy, so I decided to give it a try!
And let me tell you.. from the moment it started cooking, it smelled like heaven in our house.
Now, you’ll need apples, obviously. Beau picked them out for me st the store and he got five of the large honey crisp apples. You could use any apple you like. After cooking this for the first time, I think I’ll try green apples next time for a more sour taste.
You’ll want to add some granulated sugar and brown sugar to the mix. I mixed them together at the bottom of the crockpot, but you can coat the apples in them too.
As for the apples, I cut all five of the apples up into little chunks, although you can cut them into circles or any shape you would like. Once you cut them. You want to coat them in a bit of cinnamon and salt for the apple pie like flavor.
Now whether you put the sugar mix in the bottom of the pot or coat the apples in them, you want to place the apples in the crock pot and make sure they layer nicely.
There is a topping for the apples and it consists of oats, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and some softened butter. For the oats, I bought some store brand kind, as I didn’t know if the apple crisp would be good or not, but you can use any brand or type you want. Once you have the dry ingredients mixed, you’ll add in the butter and mix it all together. You can use a spoon, but I find it easier to maneuver the butter around the dry ingredients with my hands.
Once mixed, you can spread the topping evenly over the apples and you are ready to let it cook.
You let it cook on high for two hours and you are set for such a yummy dessert! Beau mentioned how good it smelled every twenty minutes.
1 cup of brown sugar
2/4 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
1/2 Cup of sugar
For the topping you’ll need the following:
2/3 cups of oats (any brand)
1/4 Cup of flour
4 tablespoons of the softened butter
2/3 Cup of brown sugar
After trying it, Beau thought a touch of nutmeg might bring this dessert to a new level, so I will definitely be trying that next time!
