Recipe: Crock Pot Apple Crisp

I love Fall.  I love everything about Fall, well except for the EXTREMELY cold days...  But I love apples, which are in abundance this time of year.  And it makes me want to whip up some nice, warm crock pot apple crisp!  YUM!

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!

I can smell it cooking.... Have you ever tried this with cherries or blueberries? I bet that would be good too.

I just got a 20lb. box of organic apples from Azure Standard.
I think I'll try this one today-thanks!
Enjoy your blog-what beautiful, GREEN grass you have on your farm.
It's pretty dry and all sage around us here in Utah :)
