We love apples in this house, so when I came across this Crock Pot Baked Apples recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Everyday Slow Cooker. I knew it would be the perfect recipe to treat my family!
Crock Pot Baked Apples Notes:
- I threw these Crock Pot Baked Apples together in my beautiful Cassie (my 9 x13 casserole slow cooker made by Crock Pot). I also think that Sir Hamilton (my 6-quart Hamilton Beach Programmable Insulated Slow Cooker) would be a pretty good fit for this recipe as well.
- If you have an apple corer/slicer, it makes prep a breeze! However, if you are like my mom or my friend Heather, you can peel and slice and apple just as quick as I can with my apple corer/slicer. So do what works for you!
- The original recipe called for apple cider. I couldn’t find apple cider though, so I used apple juice. From what I found after researching the difference between apple cider and apple juice is not only the texture but also the sweetness. Since this was a dessert recipe and has Granny Smith apples in it (which are a tart apple), I wasn’t too worried about it being too sweet. And it ended up being perfection! Not too sweet and not too tart.
- I served it up over ice cream to make it more dessert-like. However, these Crock Pot Baked Apples would be delicious all on their own as a side or a snack. I would recommend trying them out with ice cream and on their own. they are superb!
