Slow Cooker Cinnamon Fried Apples

Good morning friends! 
We are one week away from summer vacation which means - no school!- and this Mama is exhausted already just thinking about it!
Luckily, we took a family trip to the grocery store to stock up on some essentials so I can meal prep and plan lunches for this week. I decided to pick up some beautiful, crunchy red apples too and add them to my slow cooker for an easy Cinnamon Fried Apples dessert. 
Check out the recipe below and let me know what you think!

Ingredients: 

  • 2 lbs {6 medium} apples, cored and sliced {I used Honeycrisp}
  • 2 tbsp cornstarch 
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon 
  • 1 tbsp apple pie spice
  • 1 stick {1/2 cup} butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup apple cider {or juice}

Directions:

  1. Core and slice apples, leaving the peel one.
  2. Add the apples and cornstarch to a large bowl and toss to coat. 
  3. Next, add the cinnamon, apple pie spice, and brown sugar and mix well.
  4. Pour into a slow cooker.
  5. Finally, pour in melted butter and apple cider. 
  6. Cover and cook for 2 hours or until apples are tender and sauce is thickened.
  7. Serve warm for dessert with a scoop of ice cream if you'd like!
You can use just about any larger hearty apple for this recipe. 
I like Granny Smith and Honeycrisp {pictured}. 
Core and slice 2 lbs of apples, leaving the skin on. 
Add apples to a large bowl and add cornstarch.
Toss to coat well.
You can add separate seasonings or a mix like Apple Pie Spice or Pumpkin Pie Spice. 
I added 1 tbsp Apple Pie Spice and 1 tbsp cinnamon to the apples.
Pour into the slow cooker.
Sprinkle on brown sugar. 
And 1 stick of melted butter and 1/2 cup of apple cider or juice.
Give one more good mix and cover and cook on high for 2 hours. 
The apples are ready when they are tender and the sauce is thick.
Serve warm for dessert with a scoop of ice cream if you'd like!
Delicious and easy to make at home right in your slow cooker!
