  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup light brown sugar

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg

  • 1 pinch salt

  • ½ cup butter, cut into pieces

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • cup white sugar, or to taste

  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • 6 cups apples - peeled, cored and chopped

  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  1. Mix flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Combine butter with the flour mixture using fingers or a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside.

  2. Whisk together 1/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Place the apples in a slow cooker, stir in the cornstarch mixture; toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the walnut crumb topping on top. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours or Low for 4 hours, until apples are tender. Partially uncover the slow cooker to allow the topping to harden, about 1 hour.
