Apple Crisp

For a super easy and tasty dessert or even a sweet side dish, try this slow-cooker apple crisp. Use an all-purpose cooking apple like Granny Smith, Fuji, or Braeburn. Cooking with a slow-cooker makes this dish so easy! Just put everything in the slow-cooker pot, stir together, sprinkle the “crisp” topping over top, and let the slow-cooker do all the work. Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and enjoy!

8 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and sliced (about 4 pounds)

1½ cups all-purpose baking mix, divided

1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar, divided

2 teaspoons lemon juice

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

5 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces and divided

Vanilla ice cream


Combine apples, ½ cup baking mix, ½ cup brown sugar, lemon juice, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg, tossing to coat. Add 3 tablespoons butter. Spoon into a lightly greased 5-quart slow cooker.

Combine remaining 1 cup baking mix and remaining ½ cup brown sugar; cut in remaining 2 tablespoons butter with a pastry blender until crumbly. Sprinkle evenly over apple mixture.

Cover and cook on low for 7½ hours or until apples are tender and topping is golden. Serve with ice cream.
