Slow Cooker Apricot Crisp

Slow Cooker Apricot Crisp


I am really liking creating these slow cooker desserts.  But even better is getting to eat them!

Late yesterday afternoon, I put this simple Apricot Crisp in the slow cooker.  Then we had dinner, cleaned it up, took a walk around the pond.  Wednesday is the night that all of our kids are gone, except the youngest.  We settled in with her for the evening and enjoyed this dessert together.

It was a great way to top off the day!

This recipe is just about the same as my Slow Cooker Peach Crisp recipe.  I just used apricots instead of peaches.  Apricots have a deeper, sweeter taste than peaches and they were so good in this crisp.  The brown sugar and oats cooked bubbly around the edges and even browned a bit.

I’ve also realized through this Slow Cooker Dessert Series that 95% of all slow cooker desserts should be topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.  Fact.

Apricot and Pecan Topped Brie Appetizer (and a Bakeware Giveaway!)

Apricot and Pecan topped Brie



I’ve been working with Libby’s recently and I was so excited to be asked to create a Thanksgiving recipe using their product.  I chose to use Libby’s apricot halves.  Apricots are a favorite of mine.  I used to eat them with breakfast every day. Yum!

This appetizer couldn’t be simpler to make.  It has plenty of fall flavor too.  Apricots and pecans get spiced up with cinnamon, nutmeg and a splash of vanilla.  The warm fruit tops melty brie for an appetizer that your guests will love!  It will definitely keep them happy and willing to wait a bit longer for dinner.

(I’ve also got a fantastic giveaway at the end of this post, so keep reading!)

Apricot Delight Jello Salad

We’ve been having a debate at our house about whether this is a salad or dessert.  I call it a Jello salad.  My daughter agrees with me.  She says if it’s a salad then she can eat dessert later with a clear conscience!  I like her line of reasoning.

What do you think – salad or dessert?

Either way, it’s fantastic and perfect for Easter.  The apricots and pineapple add fruitiness to the jello.  And it gets topped with a creamy topping made from the fruit juice.  You won’t want to skip the topping.  It’s a cooked custard with Cool Whip folded in.  The topping makes this dish special.

I will say that the original recipe (given to me by my mom years ago) called for shredded cheddar cheese on top of the creamy topping.  I didn’t care for the cheese though, so I leave it out.  The cheese might move it more firmly into the salad category though.
