Reviews for Slow Cooker Apple Crisp
11 apples 5 hours crockpot 3.5 low 1.5 high. Lid on and open 1 hour after done cooking!
Taste is wonderful, but I think there was too much topping with this one...I prefer a lighter covering of the streusel topping and this was just too thick for our taste.
this was fabulous! I tried it with rhubarb and just added extra sugar since rhubarb is so tart. It was perfect for a day that was in the 90's when we didn't want to heat up the oven. There does seem to be more crust than fruit, but that could be either good or bad depending on your taste.
What a wonderful addition to a family Uno game night! Served warm and our four teenage boys said "wow" alot...especially after topping with vanilla ice cream! Followed recipe without walnuts and cooked in oven as others suggested.
My kids loved it. But I think that's just because they haven't had an apple crisp before! I used the cornstarch, yet it turned out pretty watery. Looking back at the picture now, maybe it was meant to be that way (?). I loved the making a dessert in the crock pot, but we won't make this one again. Watery, and not "crisp". Not a disaster by any means, but there are so many other better apple crisp recipes out there.
This is a great comfort food! I added an individual package of brown sugar oatmeal in the crust, like some other people suggested and it was great!
I maded this for our group while camping out at a horse show. It was a huge hit - wish I had a bigger crockpot!! I used canned apple pie filling and it worked great.
I made this last night, followed the recipe exactly. Everyone loved it!! It was QUICK, EASY, and DELICIOUS!!!
Perfect! I used some soft gala apples and added a handful of oats to the topping mixture. I set the slow cooker to high for 2 hours, however I read the reviews and ended up taking the top off after an hour and 20 minutes. The topping was perfectly crumbly and crispy. Thank you for the submission. It's a keeper!
Awesome tasty perfect with some Weldons vanilla or Brown Cinammon ice cream !
Tasted pretty good with ice cream. Only dislike was the topping was soggy.
Used this recipe while camping. Niece/Nephew came for dinner & were amazed @ how good it was! They've NEVER had apple crisp before (shame on their mother!) and had 3 helpings! It was a delicious recipe and one that I'll make again. Thank you so much for sharing!
I wasn't a big fan of this recipe but my kids liked it. I like my apple crisp with a little bit crispier top than this one makes. It seems a little soft. I did use three different kinds of apples since they were not specified in the recipe. I used 3 Granny Smith, 3 Fuji, and 1 Red Delicious (because I was short an apple and that is what I had on hand). I also added an extra Tbs of cornstarch because I knew the Red apple would go to mush. The Granny Smith apples did not soften up, they stayed crunchy after 3 hours on high, I think my cuts were to big on the Granny Smith apples. The fuji were cooked perfectly though. For the topping I added a cup of oats in to the mix. I will probably throw the leftovers in the oven to crisp up the topping. Served with vanilla ice cream on top.
I made this for Christmas and it was a big hit. I had it cook for 4 hours and went really well and came out nice and yummy.
Took this to a potluck and everyone just loved it! Really quite easy and very tasty.
Very easy to make with ingredients we always have on hand. I didn't even measure too much and it came out great. The house smelled nice all day too!
so easy to make! that's what I loved about it. I also added a teaspoon of vanilla, instant oatmeal, and left out the walnuts (only because I didn't have any). I didn't bother to peel either - I just used my apple slicer and threw them in the slow cooker. Because I have so many cortland apples from apple picking this weekend - that is what i used.
Just wonderful! My husband loved it too! Said it was just the right texture, not to mushy, not to sweet,and amazing topping with the walnut and a handful of oatmeal too.
I cooked this in the oven on 375 degrees for 45 minutes. It came out fantastic with a golden crispy crust! I used pumpkin pie spice instead of nutmeg and ginger. I only used 4 big Gala apples, and I also added one bag (2 cups) of frozen sweet pitted cherries. I didn't need the lemon juice at all. I followed the other reviews and added oatmeal to the topping. My whole family loved it, and my husband, being a professional chef, doesn't usually like anything I cook.
Delicious! I made the recipe as written, except I left the walnuts since my family won't eat them. I make apple crisp often, and this may be my new favorite recipe.
This was simply delicious. I went by the recipe except I left out the ginger and the walnuts....I also added a cup of oatmeal). I made another one a few days later.
I used Granny Smith apples and it turned out very mushy. The flavor was good, but I prefer a firmer apple in my crisp.
Recipe is delicious. Measured all dry ingredients, separating Crisp from Apple Mix, and put each in separate labeled fold-over sandwich bags. Combined as directed the next morning. After chopping 2 large and 2 small Gala apples, there were too many to fit in my 1.5 quart cooker so I chopped them again into smaller pieces. With apples still in glass mixing bowl, I added and thoroughly stirred in lemon juice to keep apples from browning then covered bowl with plastic wrap and put in frig overnight. Halved the rest of the ingredients, using Allrecipes calculator. I subbed white sugar with Apriva and having no walnuts, used 1/2 cup quick-cooking oatmeal. With apple mix filling cooker 3/4 full, I spooned mixture of Crisp ingredients over it. Good thing, because I had to leave out 1 cup. I slow cooked 3 hours, then 1 hour without the lid. The topping did not harden as directed. Disappointed, I decided to make apple turnovers so opened a package of canned jumbo flaked biscuits, rolled each biscuit flat into a 5-inch circle then added 2 teaspoonfuls apples, folded and crimped edges to made turnovers. I’ll be the first to admit, next time I’ll use pastry dough. The apple filling tastes better by itself. Though the recipe did not turn out as it should have, I enjoyed making it. Next time I'll use Red Delicious apples; first time using Gala.
This recipe was so simple! It was delicious my husband said it was just like his mother's apple pie without the crust.
To follow on with Trish, second off, and I mean this in a polite way as well, using a crock pot also really cuts the heat in your kitchen during these hot summer months. This is a good recipe.
Delish and SOOOO easy! I used Fugi apples and pumpkin spice because I was out of nutmeg. Thanks!
I'm not a big apple fan but this was really good. Like many others, I added about a cup of oats to the topping mixture. Can't imagine eating it without the oats. Used Smart Balance butter and fat free vanilla yogurt to try to make it healthier. I will make this again when fall comes.
What a simple recipe! I never thought of using my crockpot to make a dessert. To this recipe I added a pint of my canned pears (drained). I substituted the nutmeg for pumpkin pie spice but only because I am not a huge fan of nutmeg. I did add some extra dashes of cinnamon because we like a strong cinnamon taste in desserts. I did remove the lid for an additional 1/2 hr for the crumb topping to firm up but it really didn't harden at all. All in all, the apple crisp was simply delicious!! I definitely will be making this again. I've already promised the kids that I will make it for our big Thanksgiving dinner.
Outstanding -- apple texture prefect added oatmeal packet to top cooked high for 2 hours .
The apple mixture is delicious, however I didn't have any luck with the crumble on top. Would highly recommend for the apple portion, try a different crumble and it would be outstanding! Thank you for sharing.
Delicious! I made it for my family and they loved it!
Good. don't overcook or you'll have apple sauce. Be sure to remove the lid so the topping gets crunchy. I would make again. I substituted some of the flour for oatmeal in the topping.
This was super-easy to make and oh-so-delicious. Thanks for sharing the great recipe! Nicki
This was so very easy to make. The hardest part was cutting and peeling the apples. If you have a apple peeler/slicer, it will take no time at all. I made this for a large group party and by the time I went to go try it, it was all gone. In fact, they were still using the spoon to scrape off anything that was left in the slow cooker. Needless to say, it was the big hit of the party.
I used Golden Delicious apples...or maybe they were granny smiths...I can't even remember now. I also added the 1 cup of oats to the topping mixture. The textures and everything were really good, but I felt something was lacking in the flavor department. Once I added vanilla bean ice cream, it was very tasty, and not jus 'okay'.
My family enjoyed this dessert. I wasn't able to get it to crisp up at the end. It was still good though.
Pretty good! I may alter the crumble a little next time, it didn't quite do what I wanted it to for "crispness". Though how crispy is it going to get in a slow cooker really? For a slow-cooker apple crisp, this is totally doable. I'll make it again. Made my Yule dinner a success.
I loved the idea of making apple crisp in the crock pot, however, the topping didn't get very hard. It also was a little too sweet for me. I will try making it again...but next time I will cut back on the sugar & bake it in the oven. Thanks for the recipe.
Wonderful! Very easy to make. I will definitely use this recipe again.
Delicious!!! My family loved it. I used Jonathan apples and served with vanilla ice cream. Such an easy dessert.
I thought that this was good and it tasted like apple pie. But I do prefer a crunchier top made with oats. It was very easy to make and tasted great with vanilla ice cream.
Great! Added 1 cup oats to topping as another reviewer suggested. Got rave reviews and lots of guests had seconds.
I loved it, I would make it again in a heartbeat! It wasn't difficult.
Doubled this and cooked in a 6 qt on high for 2-3 hours, then moved to low for another hour. Served it alone for dessert. AMAZING! Very yummy. The top didn't crisp because I didn't take the lid off, but tasted amazing anyway. Will for sure make this again. If you aren't much for sweet, skimp on the sugar. I made it with *almost* all the sugar, and it was sweet but not overly so.
Loved this!! I kept the skins on the apples and used sweet apples. Went over great at a family gathering.
Was great just as recipe is written!
whole family loved it!!!!
Just too sweet for me. I'll stick with cinnamon and sugar next time.
This was quick & easy to throw together, thickened & crisped beautifully. I used half apples & half pears that needed to be eaten and used quick oats in place of the nuts. I cooked on high(#4) in my oblong slow cooker for 2 hrs & pulled the lid for an hour. Perfect! The only reason I didn't rate it a 5 is that the apple concoction is waaaaay too sweet for me. I probably should've tasted my fruit prior to sugaring, to get an idea of what I needed...or possibly just use brown sugar instead of the white would give it the right flavor/sweetness. Regardless, I'll be making this again!
Added the cup of oats. Turned out FANTASTIC! Husband and I at half of it. YIKES!
This was soooo good.. I didn't have any ginger so I skipped that and we don't eat walnuts so skipped that. After the first initial mess w/ getting the apples ready ( I hate coring apples lol ) it was a smooth, easy to follow recipe and once it is in you can go on with your day till its done. Made my house smell so good. :) I will be making this over and over again. I added more cinnamon because we love it. Thanks
The crock pot recipe was great! I made it as one of the desserts for Thanksgiving and this way it didn't take up oven space and we got to eat it warm with ice cream! The balance of spices was perfect. I also added oats to the crumble topping.
Quick and easy I used some harvest crunch for topping worked out very well
I didn't have walnuts or ginger, but it was still okay. I added a cup of oatmeal to the topping. I'll probably try it with different fruits and less topping.
Was quite tasty...I was surprised!
Delicious! I wanted a big batch so cut up 9 cups of apples, reduced the sugar, and left it on slow for 3 hours and 1 hour for crisping. Will definitely be my go to for company dinners. So easy.
Um. MORE PLEASE! Holy smokes this was easy and delicious and my family loved it! We ended up using pears because that's what we had in the fridge and using 12 cups of super ripe pears and just overflowed all the ingredients measurements. It was OUTSTANDING! Will be making this quite a bit through the fall with multiple types of fruits. Yay! Thank you :)
Delicious! I made it for a work potluck and I used pecans in the crumbly top instead of walnuts since I am not a fan of the walnut. Turned out perfect! I'm going to make this for thanksgiving too.
This was so good and really easy. I had about of cup of raspberries that I threw in with the apples. Yummm!
After reading all of the reviews stating that the topping was not crunchy I didn't expect it to be. So with that understanding it was pretty good. Kind of mushy but good with whipped cream or even better with ice cream. The next day it was even better (at least 4 stars) once I put it in the oven to reheat. Thanks for sharing!
I followed this recipe exactly with an addition of about 1/2 c. oatmeal added to the topping. FANTASTIC!! Left it in slow cooker and removed top at end for an hour while still on low. Absolutely wonderful!! House smelled amazing and I didn't have to make w rush of dinner. Did it hours before and then was ready after dinner. Didn't have ice cream so just put some cool whip on it and it was great. Hubby laughed bc I kept making yummy noises while eating. Kept it on low for several more hours and was nowhere as good as when the recipe said was ready. So don't leave it cooking much longer than recipe calls for. It's absolutely delicious. What a great slow cooker dessert recipe. Warm and gooey and topping not very hard but was so good didn't matter.
Was simply delicious! Great with Vanilla Ice cream, perfect as an after dinner treat. I didn't use white sugar though, I used honey.
Very yummy but a bit too sugary. I added 2 handfuls of oatmeal to mine just cuz I'm an oatmeal fan and it turned out very well.
Perfect! Only changes were adding pecans (I am out of walnuts) and adding about 2/3 c. steel cut oats. Followed other directions exactly as written! Great on a fall day!
This was soo good. I followed the recipe to the letter. Even though the top didn't get hard (as I knew it wouldn't), I was still very pleased and surprised with this from the slow cooker.
I've made this 3 times sans the walnuts as I have an allergy. This recipe is PHENOMENAL! The crock pot is the BEST! I would recommend using apples that are more tart, like granny smith or some Jazz apples which I just discovered today. The dish is already a bit sweet, and the Gala apples I used the first 2 times are also sweet. I enjoyed the contrast between the tart and sweet. This is my go-to dessert!
This turned out great! It was quite a hit and I had left overs despite 6 adults having some for dessert. We did serve with ice cream as its very sweet. I dont think you could eat this one on its own as a stand alone. Worked great in the crock pot. I did not have ginger so a added a little bit of clove for some additional fall flavor.
Cooked as directed and it was wonderful!!! Next time I will try the oatmeal in the topping.
Yummy! Doubled the recipe but used 1 1/2 c of quick oats in place of nuts. 12 guests had a reasonable size serving each (w/vanilla ice cream) but a few of the youngsters were asking for seconds...none to be found!
Got the recipe in my e-mail this morning and decided to make it. My family loved it :D quick and easy to prep and filled my home with a wonderful smell. I will be making this again and soon ;)
This was a good dessert, but the crumbs were a little "chewy" for my liking. My company enjoyed it though- so it's definitely worth a try.
I tried this recipe before I had a student make it. It was very easy to make and my family really loved it. The only thing I might have changed was an apple that held up a little better during cooking. THIS is a must try!!!
This tastes awesome! I didn't have nutmeg, so I substituted allspice. I also added 1/2 tsp of vanilla before the lemon juice. I didn't have any walnuts, so I left them out. I only wish that I had read the other reviews first. I would have added oatmeal to the crisp topping. I will definitely do that next time! Without it, the topping is kind of doughy.
This was so easy to make! And we LOVED it!
Taste pretty good. I added some caramel and used blueberry oatmeal. May try cherries in the future.
This is the easiest apple crisp I've ever made and it tasted delicious! I went with this one because I needed something I could take to work and still serve warm. I cut it all up the night before and kept it in my fridge. When I got to work the next day, I sat the crock pot on my desk and turned it on. By lunch time, everyone was asking about the wonderful smell.
IT WAS YUMMY!!
I added 2 tsp vanilla extract, cooked on high one hour, low one hour, and low-half-covered for one hour....it turned out amazing!! I will make this again
This has been enjoyed by all during the holidays.
Best dessert I have ever made! Did everything according to recipe except added the packets of maple brown sugar oatmeal. So easy and tastes like heaven. This will be a cold weather favorite.
Not a keeper...i didn't like this at all! The walnuts gave it a funny flavor and the flour mixture didn't do much but make it gooey.
This was fabulous! So tasty and the walnuts really add to the flavor...might add some raisins too next time.
This is a wonderful recipe. It was easy and tasted better than I expected. I plan to use it for some of our pot-lucks.
I made this as instructed it was really good. mot too sweet.
I made this recipe exactly as the recipe stated. I used 1/2 Gala apples, and 1/2 Granny Smith apples. I served this for a ladies brunch with an egg casserole and pigs in a blanket. It was a hit, and they ate ALL of it!
The topping wasn't very crispy and it never hardened, but it was still really tasty. Thanks for the recipe!
Sorry to say this didn't work for us. I found the topping to be too much and it didn't crisp up. If there was a next time I would use 2 or so more cups of apples and still cut the topping down. The house smelled great though! thx SDROSIE
Cooked it longer then 2 hours on high about an extra hour and came out delicious! :)
Loved the idea of making this in a crockpot. I made with the optional high setting as given and it was dry in some places and apples got a little spongy (I used Macintosh). The lemon flavor was also a little strong for me...I will use apple juice next time and I will also try the low setting.
This is possibly my favorite dessert cooked in the oven - I appreciate a slow cooker version! For all those commenting that they added oatmeal to the topping, I was thrilled that this recipe did not call for oatmeal. For three generations my family has made apple crisp with a flour/sugar/butter topping and that is what I like best. Oatmeal interferes with the wonderful texture you get with just those three ingredients. Try the recipe as written, without the oatmeal!
I made a couple changes had no cornstarch so just used more flour, used dairy free spread and lime juice instead of lemon. No nuts also. It came out fantastic, absolutely delicious. So addicting, everyone loved it the flavor was great.
Used all ingredients, replaced white sugar with Splenda. It tasted great and family loved it, especially my 1 year old great grandson. He usually would not come to me, let his taste it and he followed me around the house.
I doubled this recipe. Put it in the crock pot without the topping. Then put the apples in a 9.5x11 pan and covered with topping; then cooked at 425 for 15 minutes. Everyone loved it and there was none left.
I love this recipe, My co workers loved it so much they requested I make it a second day in a row. I did use a cup of oatmeal in the topping, didn't use the ginger or nutmeg because I didn't have it and it was still wonderful. Funny but when I put the topping on top of the apples I thought it was too much dry ingredients to get moist. It wasn't.... Lol. It turned out perfect. We removed the top the last hour and it made our office smell so good! Perfect, easy, make it and forget it dish. Perfect for an office carry in for sure.
This is very good but I will probably try with half the sugar next time. Every time someone in my house would eat it I would just imagine the mound of sugar that laid before me that they were blissfully unaware of. Also for those like me that worried if the apples would burn in the slow cooker and not melt into a liquid-y goo, it does melt so don't worry about that.
Best cooked apple dessert I've ever had!! And I don't really care for apple pie or cobblers. I used Honeycrisp apples, weighing in at about a pound each! So I only had to use 3 of my 40#bbox supply. I also used raw sugar, rather than the white. But I did use the recipe amounts. I used 2 packets brown sugar instant oatmeal + 2 packets of plain for topping, omitting nuts. Cook time was a little less because of the apple type, I suspect. Soooo good! Nice warm treat for Thanksgiving late night. Wish I'd hhad the ice cream maker ready, but I will get some tomorrow for the left overs.
This is so easy! And it's super delicious. I make it all the time now.
SO yummy and easy!
Loved this recipe. I had other things in the oven and this was a great recipe to make it and leave it. I as well added oatmeal to the topping, came out great!
