Apple Filling

  • 6 apples peeled, cored, sliced
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon flour


  • 1 ¼ cup rolled oats
  • ½ cup flour
  • cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted


  • Start by making the apple filling. Add the apple slices, lemon juice, vanilla, brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, and flour to the bowl of your slow cooker. Toss all the ingredients together well then spread them into an even, flat layer.
    6 apples, 1 lemon, juiced, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, ½ cup brown sugar, 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ¼ teaspoon salt, ¼ teaspoon flour
  • Mix all of the ingredients for the oat topping together in a separate mixing bowl. Sprinkle the oat mix over the apples inside the slow cooker.
    1 ¼ cup rolled oats, ½ cup flour, ⅓ cup brown sugar, 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, 4 tablespoons butter, melted
  • Place a dish towel or paper towel across the top of the slow cooker then put the top on, over the towels. The towels will absorb some of the steam from the apples as they cook and prevent the crisp topping from getting soggy.
  • Set the slow cooker to low and cook for 7-8 hours. When the crisp is ready, the apple filling will be bubbling around the edges.
  • Scoop the crisp right out of the slow cooker and enjoy while warm!


  • After the slow cooker crisp has cooked, turn the crockpot to the “warm” setting to keep the dessert warm until you are ready to eat it. 
  • Use honeycrisp, gala, golden delicious or other firm, tart apples that are good for baking. 
  • Serve with some vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.
  • Add 1 cup of raisins to the apple filling, if desired.
