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.

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.
