BAKED APPLES IN SLOW COOKER
Have you ever “baked” apples in your slow cooker? Tastes just like the ones you bake in the oven but cooks away in your slow cooker while you busy yourself with other activities.
4 -5 baking apples (I was able to fit 7 smaller apples in mine)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1⁄3 cup raisins (optional)
3⁄4 cup brown sugar
1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
1⁄4 cup butter, softened
Scoop out center of each apple and and leave cavity about 1/2 in from bottom. (I sliced the top half of mine off and used a small spoon to remove the core and seeds.
Peel top of apples down about 1 in and brush lemon juice on top. In bowl, combine raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon, and butter. Spoon mixture into apples.
Pour 1/2 c water in sprayed crock pot and arrange apples inside. Cover and cook on low 1-3 hrs or until tender.
Serve warm or room temperature with vanilla ice cream and caramel ice cream topping.
