Have you ever had those fried apples from Cracker Barrel? They are one of my favorite things from there. Sometimes I’ll buy some of the jars and take them home but recently I decided to give them a whirl on my own. These slow cooker apples were surprisingly easy and I love that they can be eaten as is or on something delicious like french toast.
BAKED SLOW COOKER APPLES
|Prep time||10 minutes|
|Cook time||3 hours, 30 minutes|
|Total time||3 hours, 40 minutes|
- 6 -8 Medium apples, sliced and cored.
- 1 tablespoon Cinnamon
- 1/2 cup Water
- 1/2 cup Brown Sugar (packed)
- 1 teaspoon Corn Starch
- 1/4 cup Granulated Sugar
- 2 tablespoons Butter
|Mix it all together minus the butter.|
|Cook on slow cooker for approximately 3.5 hours on high.|
|Once cooked to desired consistency, top with butter then cool to enjoy.|
Adjust the timing to 5 minutes on high w/ quick pressure release. I personally loved them from the pressure cooker, they were full of flavor and perfect for a quick breakfast turnaround!
The time you cook these in your slow cooker will really depend on how you like your baked apples. If you like them super soft, you’d leave them in there for longer. The cornstarch is what determines the thickness of the syrup of the apples.
