Crock Pot Apple Crisp

Pin It

If you've been reading my blog lately you know how much I LOVE my crock pot and have been trying it for all kinds of new and inventive recipes.  

Here's what you need:

6-8 Fuji apples, I actually used an assortment of Fuji and Gala, peeled and thinly sliced
1/2 cup sugar (up to 1 cup depending on the type of apple and the sweetness, I always test my apples for sweetness before baking)
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
3 Tbs. flour

1-1/2 cups oats, I used quick cooking
1/2 cup flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
pinch of salt
3/4 cup butter, unsalted, cold and cubed

Wash, peel, and thinly slice the apples.  Place in a bowl and toss with the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and flour. 

Pour into the crock pot.
In the same bowl you used for the apples (no reason to dirty another one) place the oats, sugars, and spices for the topping.
Stir together and add the cold butter.  Using a pastry blender or your fingers blend until it forms little pea sized balls.
Pour evenly over the apples and cover with lid.  Cook on low for 3-4 hours, until the apples are fork tender and the topping is cooked.
Be careful when lifting the lid so that all the condensation doesn't end up on top of your crisp.  I removed my lid once an hour and wiped it off.  
Delicious served warm with ice cream

Serves 8 or more

  15. Hi Michelle, Just saw your recipe for Crock Pot Apple Crisp and it looks delicious. I have never made a dessert in the crock pot before, but I will be trying this one. I do have suggestion though, what if you put some paper towels under the lid to keep the condensation from dripping down on the crisp? Thanks again and keep the recipes coming. :)

    1. Hi Joann,
      Thanks so much for the comment. I have seen the paper towel or even regular towels used and I will definitely try it the next time to keep the condensation under control :)
