Recipe: Crock Pot Apple Crisp
I love fast and easy. This recipe is great because you can fix it 2-3 hours before you are expecting company, and it is ready when you are! I don't know about you, but when I have company, I want to pay attention to THEM instead of working in the kitchen!
So, I got this recipe from a book my sister-in-law got me a long while back, called "Fix-It and Forget-It Recipes for Entertaining". Now for being recipes for entertaining, I STILL have to double this recipe. And let me tell you, IF there are left-overs, they refrigerate well, and heat well for the next day! It doesn't last beyond that in MY house.
So, here it is, the crock-pot recipe for Apple Crisp:
1 qt. canned apple pie filling, OR
2/3 C. sugar
1 1/4C. water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
4 C. sliced, peeled apples
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp. ground all-spice
3/4 C. quick oats (I use regular!)
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. flour
1/4 C. butter, at room temperature
- Place pie filling in slow cooker, or combine 2/3 C.sugar, water, corn starch, apples, cinnamon and all-spice. Place in cooker.
- Combine remaining ingredients until crumbly. Sprinkle over apple filling.
- Cover. Cook on low for 2-3 hours, (or will sit on "warm" until you are ready!)
**Makes 6-8 servings**
I haven't used the pie filling from the can, but the mixture above works very well. The hardest part about all of it is cutting and peeling the apples!
Hope you enjoy!
