Apple Crisp

There are two things you should know about me. 1) I love my crockpot. 2) I really love my crockpot.

Talk about saving time! I love all 5 of my crockpots and use them all the time. Yes folks, five. Another thing you should know about me? I don't like baking. It's hard and takes lots of time. I know many of you would disagree, so for those of you who AGREE with me, this recipe is for you:

Slow Cooker Apple Crisp
Easier Than Pie

Slow-cooked apple crisp has all the taste of apple pie, with a fraction of the work! It's the perfect treat for the busy holiday season.


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1/3 cup white sugar, or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 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.
