With the summer heat upon, I still want something sweet, and usually that involves baking. I am on a mission to find tasty meals that I can make in my slow cooker. I am looking for the same great taste, same texture, same everything. I’m going to start off with with Apple Crisp.
Slow Cooker Apple Crisp
Start with 4-5 apples. Peeled and sliced. My melon slicer while big does a great job slicing my apples. I used Gala as that’s what was in my fridge.
Sprinkle the topping over the base of apples. Top with 4 tbsps of butter.
Cook on low for 3-5 hours.
I couldn’t get enough of this! While it didn’t have the full toasty/crispiness that oven baked has, it was still there just not the whole top of it. Hubby said it didn’t quite make the mark for him. The girls loved it like their Momma. It was better than my microwave apple crisp, which you could also make to beat the baking heat if you don’t have a slow cooker.
Do you do less baking in the summer as well? If you have a favorite slow cooker dessert recipe? I’d love to have you share it!
