apple crisp..... in the slow cooker!

Every autumn, I like to buy a big bag of Granny Smiths and make a few tasty apple treats. This year, I've found a new recipe that I've fallen head over heels for - it cooks in the crock pot!

Start it in the early afternoon, and you'll have a warm, cinnamon-y finish for dinner.

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp

4 large Granny Smith (or other baking) apples - cored & sliced
1 c. water
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. allspice

Mix this together, spread evenly over the bottom of the slow cooker.

3/4 c. dry oatmeal
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/4 c. butter @ room temperature

Combine the dry ingredients, then cut in the butter with two forks or pastry cutter until crumbly. Sprinkle over the top of the apples in the slow cooker.

Cover, cook on low for 2-3 hours or high for 1 hr.
Serve with whipped cream or ice cream for an extra treat!
