  • This warm and delicious dessert is easy enough for weeknights yet impressive enough for a cozy dinner party too. By making the apples in a slow cooker, rather than baking them in the oven, the apples will be perfectly juicy and tender. Plus, you won't have to scrub any baking dish later as cleanup is a breeze when you use a slow cooker liner!

I wanted to fix it in a way that I knew my family would most enjoy - I cut up my apples and put them in the crock pot, then topped with the mixture, and then poured the apple juice over it all. Cooked on low for almost three hours - Perfect! We served them with some delicious vanilla ice cream - Sooo good!

This was ok for us but maybe this was my fault for using quick cooking oatmeal but Idk if that would make or break this recipe. I also believe we would have enjoyed It more if I would have removed the apple skins completely before cooking. I'm not sure if the apples are supposed to be tender or downright soft and mushy because that's how mine turned out after 3 hours on low. The flavor was good and not too sweet so as others mentioned, very good on vanilla ice cream. I would make this again as it is a great dessert recipe that takes minimal work and attention, but peel the apples before cooking and also check their tenderness after 2 hours or so.

...can't type right now...too busy drooling and licking my spoon! This was so very yummy! It wasn't overly sweet and paired nicely with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. And while cooking, this made my house smell like heaven!

I took a cue from another reviewer and sliced up my apples and layered them on the bottom. Other than that change, I stuck to the recipe. My house totally smells delicious and the vanilla ice cream pairs so well with it! Easy dessert and anything in the slow cooker makes my day…especially when I don't have to CLEAN said slow cooker. Great fall dish - will make again, possibly with dried cranberries next time!

This is so darned easy! Tip: If you peel a strip of the apple peel around the middle of the apple they actually hang together better - it allows room for the apple to expand. 3 hours was just perfect for my apples. The slow cooker liners make clean up a breeze. I didn't use raisins, some of my eaters don't care for them so I just left them out. I did 4 apples in a 6 quart crock and there was actually room for at least two more. I can see doing these on practice nights, start them before leaving for practice and by the time you are home and had dinner they will be done and waiting to be devoured. Thanks for a nice recipe. I love those slow cooker liners!

Super easy recipe & with the Reynold's liners, snap to clean up! Rocks with vanilla bean ice cream or by itself (I had to test both out ;) ) I added pecans to the crumble filling/topping for a bit more texture.. YUM! Will make this again for sure.

I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I didn't have high hopes for this for some reason but they smelled fantastic cooking. These reminded me of apple crisp made easy. The slow cooker liners make for easy clean up. Love them little gems!

What an easy recipe, I definitely will make it for the holidays , I love the smell my kitchen had when they were cooking, and those slow cooker liners are amazing, the clean up only took minutes, just what I need for the upcoming festivities
