Apple Crisp in the Slow Cooker

I’m on a roll with slow cooked desserts.  This apple crisp is an adaptation of my Apple Crinkle.

I decided to give it a whirl in the slow cooker and it turned out beautifully.  I dressed it up a bit with a handful of dried cranberries and chopped pecans.

My mouth is watering as I write this post.  I must make this again soon!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  1. Hi Tiffany,

    What a great dessert! We will be celebrating my husband’s birthday this Sunday with a family dinner and your apple crisp will make a wonderful accompaniment to the braised chicken I’ll be making. And I love that I can do it in the crock-pot!! I am actually going to serve this as a side dish along with some sweet potatoes…a perfect fall combo! Sort of like the famous Fried Apples at the Cracker Barrel Restaurant.

    So glad I recently discovered your blog!

    Love,

    Mary

  2. Did I miss it? What do you do with the other half of the crumb mixture? The recipe never said. I’m assuming you top the mixture with it, but do you do it at the beginning of the cooking time?

  3. The recipe only says to use of half the crumbs when mixing in the apples. When do you use the rest of them?

  4. I just put this going in the slow cooker! I didn’t have any dried cranberries so I used a cup of frozen cranberries instead. Thanks for the recipe!

  5. I’ve got to try this – I have all these apples from last weekend and then no time to turn them into anything. Slow cooker will definitely help that. Thank you!!!

  6. Wow… I had no idea you could make things such as this in the slow cooker…. that’s awesome.. Def. gonna make that ASAP. Thanks. :)

  7. Made this today. Yum! And it made the house smell good… Thanks!

  8. Just starting to get colder here so Im looking forward to the Apple Crisp. I have to get the chicken out of the slow cooker first :)

  9. Lynn Beumer says:

    Yes, I put the second half of the crumbs on top of the apples, but should they be sprinkled before or after the water, sugar, cinnamon mixture?

    Thanks.
    Lynn

  10. I made this dish yesterday for thanksgiving dinner. It was delicious. I have never cooked a desert in the slow cooker so i was a little worried. It came out less crunchy on the top then it would have if baked in the oven. Needless to say, everyone enjoyed it. Thank you for the recipe!

  11. I made this today. I usually find american recipes too sweet, so I added less sugar to the crumbs and less to the water. It was still a bit too sweet for our tastebuds, but I will be making it again, as we liked it otherwise.

  12. Leslie Burckard says:

    What size of Crock Pot. ?? Thanks.

  13. Dried cherries would work very well, too. Not QUITE as tart as cranberries, but still cuts back the sweetness and adds the beautiful red accent color.

  14. About how many servings does this make?

  15. Also I have been informed that adding ab out 1 cup of raisins to this Apple Crisp recipe will work out superb.
    Will try it later today.

  16. I am wanting to make this it sounds “yummly”, anyways im just wondering what are some other fruits you would substitute for cranberries?? I was thinking maybe blueberries? any suggestions?

  17. yummy! Going to try this for my MOPS group! Does it still turn out if I double the recipe and would I cook it longer?
