Fall is here in Michigan, which allows me to welcome back my slow cooker for everyday recipes. I have two different Cuisinart cookers, as they accommodate different recipes throughout the year. The multi-cooker is a larger version of the traditional slow cooker.
This recipe makes about eight small servings of apple crisp and I was able to go outside and enjoy the Fall weather while this one was cooking indoors unsupervised. It took about 3 1/2 hours for this mixture to achieve tender and delicious apples. I made my own fresh vanilla ice cream too, or it could simply be served with whipped cream.
To make this recipe, gather these ingredients: 5 medium Gala apples, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour, 1/2 cup Quaker oats, 1/2 cup sugar free butterscotch pudding mix dry, 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon, and 1/3 cup stick margarine cut into cubes.
Cut, core and peel the apples, and place in the slow cooker. In a small bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients. Sprinkle over the apples. Cover and cook on low for at least 3 hours and check the consistency of the apples. If not tender, continue to cook for another 1/2 hour. Delicious served warm, but this recipe easily will refrigerate and can be served several days later warmed in a microwave. Tastes like Fall to me.
