Celebrate fall and apples with this ultra simple crock pot apple crisp. Amazingly good for minimal work.
There are many variations of this around but they are not really “cooking for two” friendly. So I combined several recipes and cut down the amount to make it friendly for the smaller crock pot. While it is not just two servings, you will want at least some leftovers
Very nice. A high 4 or low 5.
Notes: I’m not very picky about my apples. There are many good apples for cooking and a few not so good, but I believe you use what you have. I had Fiji today.
Start with apples of your choice. I had Fiji today. You will need four medium which will make four cups of apple slices. Peel and slice.
Mix 1/2 cup each of flour, light brown sugar and rolled oats. Add 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg. Add four tablespoons softened butter and mix until combined completely. It will be crumbly looking.
Give a smaller crock pot a heavy spray of PAM. I used my 3 1/2 quart pot. Add 4 cups of apple slices.
Smooth out apples then apply topping evenly over the apples.
Cook for 2 hours on high covered then rotate the lid to allow moisture to vent and cook one more hour on high for a total of 3 hours.
Allow to cool a little before serving so the apples will set up some. Great with ice cream.
