|Apple Crisp, from your slow cooker.|
It is rainy here, very rainy in fact. The leaves are falling off the cherry tree in the backyard and the Japanese Maple is turning scarlet. The scene is ideal, except for the rain. Only one thing to do, make something with the apples sitting on the counter.
They are not large apples, but there is enough once peeled and sliced to make this wonderful dessert. I made a crisp like this years ago but lost track of the recipe. And when I went back to find the blog I got it from, I could not find that either. But the taste, well that I did not forget. There is an unusual ingredient that makes all the difference, peanut butter. Oh yes, peanut butter, so please don't leave it out.....
Apple Crisp, a slow cooker recipe
adapted from: modern mommy hood
6-8 apples depending on size peeled and sliced thin
1/3 - 1/2 c sugar - depending on the sweetness of your apples
1 T cornstarch
1/2 t cinnamon
1 T apple cider vinegar
2 T water
Combine well, turn into a greased 6qt slow cooker. Set on high.
1 c old fashion oats*
1 c flour (we used pastry grind spelt)
1/2 c sugar
1/4 c brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
1/4 t nutmeg
1/2 c butter
2 T peanut butter OR almond butter
Pulse the oats in a food processor to mince up, add remaining ingredients and pulse until completely mixed together.
Spoon evenly over the top of the apples.
Cover and cook on high 2 hours. Remove cover and cook another hour to crisp the topping. Serve with vanilla Greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream or of course whipped cream.
* if you prefer you may use quick oats and simply pulse all ingredients until combined.
