It’s time for the September edition of the “Lady Behind the Curtain” Dessert Challenge! This month’s ingredients are apples and cinnamon, a favorite flavor duo of mine, so I couldn’t wait to get on this challenge because I had the perfect recipe in mind.

A few years ago I tried out a recipe that was on the insert inside a box of Reynold’s® Slow Cooker liners. It sounded pretty tasty, so I figured why not … hard to mess up cinnamon and apples, right? And even if it ended up not tasting the greatest, at least my house smelled heavenly with the aroma of apples, cinnamon and nutmeg wafting through the house!

But when I accepted this challenge, I didn’t expect my beloved Crock-Pot to go kaput. Figures! But thanks to hubby’s searching, he stumbled upon my ancient Crock-Pot and saved the day, er, challenge! Of course … it’s my back-up one, so it’s not exactly the most stylish of designs by today’s standards. Never fear though, it got the job done and did it well.

I love serving these gooey, yummy apples with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream and Nilla Wafer crumbles. And of course some extra nutmeg and cinnamon sprinkled on top doesn’t hurt. Ahh … definitely at the top of the comfort food ranks. And don’t forget to top your ice cream with some of the warm, scrumptious sauce left at the bottom of your slow cooker!



Slow Cooker Glazed Cinnamon Apples

Rating: 51

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 3 hours

Total Time: 3 hours, 20 minutes

Yield: 8-9 servings

Ingredients

  • 6 large Granny Smith apples (cored and cut into eight wedges — I keep the peels on, but you don't have to)
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1/2 c. granulated sugar
  • 1/2 c. packed light brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 6 tbsp. butter, melted
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Crumbled oatmeal, ginger snaps or vanilla wafers (optional)
  • 1 Reynold's® Slow Cooker liner (optional)

Instructions

  1. If using a slow cooker liner, open and place inside slow cooker.
  2. Place apples in the slow cooker and drizzle with lemon juice.
  3. Mix sugar, brown sugar, flour, cinnamon and nutmeg in a medium bowl. Sprinkle mixture over apples and stir gently to coat apples. Drizzle with butter.
  4. Cook on low for 3 hours or high for 2 hours until apples are done (I prefer 3 hours on low — less chance of burning)
  5. Carefully remove lid to allow stream to escape. Serve warm apple topping over ice cream. Top with oatmeal or crumbled cookies, if desired.
  6. Do not lift or transport liner with food inside. Cool slow cooker completely before removing liner and discarding.

  8. Thank you everyone! Yes, so thankful that hubby didn’t let me throw the old one out when I was going through one of my purging sweeps. It came *that* close to being donated last fall! Such a fun and yummy treat to try out in the one brought out of retirement. 😀
