What You Need to Make Crockpot Baked Apples
– Apples – Dried cranberries – Brown sugar – Butter – Cinnamon and allspice
Place your brown sugar, dried cranberries or raisins, and cinnamon and allspice (or whatever spices you are using) in a small bowl and stir them up really well. Core your apples. After you core your apples peel off just a little strip around the top.
Now place the cored apples in the bottom of your slow cooker and use a spoon to fill each apple with your sugar mixture. Push the filling down in there and fill it up some more!
Top each one with a pat of butter. You can also cut the butter into your sugar mixture but this works just as well and is less work.
Add in 1/2 cup of water and cover with lid. Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours or on high for 3 to 4 hours for large apples. I used five small to medium apples, so I cooked mine on high for 2.5 hours, or until tender.
Add ice cream or whipped cream if you like because you know what? Everything is better with a little ice cream!
