Fall is a great time to dust off the crock pot to make some delicious slow cooked treats for your family. Not only are crock pot desserts delicious, they are so easy to make too, with the crock pot doing all the work for you. Here are some favorite apple dessert recipes that you can make in your crock pot for fall.
Baked Cinnamon Apples
Baked apples are an old time family favorite. “Bake” these apples in your crock pot and enjoy them for dessert after dinner.
- 6 large apples
- 1 c. raisins
- 1 c. sugar
- 1/4 c. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 3 tbsp. cornstarch
- 4 tbsp. butter
First peel, core, and slice the apples and place them in the crock pot. Add the raisins, sugars, spices, and cornstarch. Cut the butter into slices and place on top of the apple mixture.
Cook apples on high for about 1 1/2 hours or on low 3 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.
Crock Pot Apple Oatmeal
You have to try this easy recipe to see for yourself how good it is. This is possibly the best homemade oatmeal ever. Once you make it your family will ask you to make it again and again.
- 2 apples (Granny Smith)
- 2 tbsp. sugar
- 1 tbsp. brown sugar
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 1/4 c. water
- 1 1/2 c. rolled oats (not quick cooking kind)
Cut and chop the cored apples into small pieces. You can peel the apples first or not, it is up to you. They will taste great either way.
Place the chopped apples, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in the crock pot.
Add the water and cook for about an hour. Add the oatmeal and cook for another hour.
Any leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated in the microwave.
Crock Pot Apple Crisp
If you like old-fashioned apple crisp, then you will love this easy crock pot version. Once you try it, you won’t go back to the oven baked version.
- 8 c. apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
- 3/4 c. brown sugar
- 1/2 c. flour
- 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
- 2 tsp. cinnamon
- 2/3 c. butter, softened
Place the sliced apples in the bottom of the crock pot. Combine remaining ingredients and sprinkle on top.
Cook on low for about 6 hours, and do not stir during cooking.
Crock Pot Apple Butter
- Approximately 20 small apples, peeled and cored
- 1/3 c. brown sugar
- 1 tbsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
- 3/4 tsp. pure vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. salt
Place the chopped apples in the crock pot. Combine the remaining ingredients and then add to apples.
Cook on low for about 10 hours, or until apples are very soft. Mash with a potato masher if necessary to achieve the desired apple butter consistency. You can also run it through a blender if any chunks remain to get a smoother apple butter consistency.
This apple butter will keep in the refrigerator for several weeks, or you can easily freeze it to eat this winter.
Crock Pot Apple Cider
- 1 quart apple juice
- 2 c. water
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1 orange, cut into slices
Place all ingredients in crock pot and cook on low until heated through. Serve. Refrigerate any leftovers to reheat later.
