All opinions are mine alone.The holidays are a wonderful time to celebrate family and food! With 4 birthdays each a week a part, and of course Thanksgiving, we always have a lot going on.
This is why I LOVE Smart & Final. It is a great place to do a one-stop shop of everything from produce to meats. Smart & Final carries warehouse size items without a club fee, making shopping easy, less expensive and less daunting to shop in than a big warehouse store. Smart & Final is a perfect place for you to shop for all your food needs, bakery items, etc. Not to mention they actually open early! I love getting my early morning shopping done before the crowds. It is a great place to get everything you need to create a complete recipe!
I also love my slow cooker during these busy times. Considering my oven is always pre-occupied with items, slow cooking is a great way to multi-task. With this delicious Slow Cooker Apple Cobbler recipe you can focus on the labor intensive oven and stove recipes. Not to mention, you will have the magnificent aromas of fresh apples and cinnamon cooking. Easy and delicious dessert with a fall scented home, sounds like a double whammy to me!
Not only is this recipe wonderful because you just throw it in the slow cooker, but it is also a one bowl only preparation. This means less prep and mess and more time enjoying your family and friends.
I served each piece with a generous scoop of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream and some chopped pecans, because let’s face it there is nothing better that a piece of hot fresh apple cobbler and ice cream!
My kids get giddy over warm desserts and this one did not disappoint! In fact, this is the second time I have made it in the last 12 hours. Warm apple cobbler is certainly a way to their heart!
- 6 medium sized apples (I used Gala)
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 12 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
- 1 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup all purpose flour
- 4 tablespoons cold butter
- 1/2 cup oats
Peel and remove seeds from apples then thinly slice or chop.
Sprinkle apples with brown sugar and cinnamon and mix to coat all of the apples.
Pour apples into crock pot.
In a large microwave safe bowl, melt butter.
Add flour, sugar, baking powder and salt and whisk with melted butter.
Slowly add milk and mix until almost smooth.
Cover apples with cobbler mixture.
In the same bowl, combine brown sugar, flour, oats and cold butter and cut (with pastry cutter or two knives) until butter has been coated and are pea size.
Sprinkle oat/sugar mixture over cobbler batter.
Set your crock pot to low and cook for 3 hours. Check the cake every hour after 2 hours as all crock pots are different.
Enjoy warm with a big scoop of ice cream!
