I just spent several days in Southern Oregon visiting the Harry & David team and it was simply amazing. My first trip to out there, the fall foliage is probably the best I’ve ever seen. We didn’t really have a vibrant fall this year on the east coast with the warm weather that “plagued” us most of September/October so it was such a treat to get to see fall in another part of the country. I’ll share more about my trip out there later this week but in the meantime….let’s make a fall classic even easier with this Easy Slow Cooker Apple Crisp recipe.
I enlisted the help of my trusty Crock Pot to make this one come together without much attention on your part at all. Just dump it all into your favorite slow cooker and turn it on. Go shopping, leaf peeping, take a nap….and you’ll have the most amazing comfort food ever.
This Slow Cooker Apple Crisp recipe is an easy five-step process. Peeled and diced Harry & David apples are tossed with a blend of spices before being combined with a bit of grated apple to make a bit of a sticky/sweet sauce the apples kind of swim around in like a syrupy bath of goodness.
The shredded apple helps make the dessert less watery since it releases more of the pectin in the apple. This technique creates the perfect apple crisp filling, smooth and sweet. The apple mixture is then added to the slow cooker before being topped with a buttery oat crust that’s an incredible sensory contrast to the sweet apple filling.
This slow cooker dessert is just what you need for parties and family gatherings, since it frees up the oven for your turkey, side dishes or family-sized lasagna. I’m always looking for ways to make more dishes without having to wait for things to finish up in the oven before baking off the next dish. Simple to make and one pot to clean—dessert doesn’t get any easier than this!
