I used a similar recipe on here but the topping was too doughy. So I tried it with oatmeal added to the top part and it was much better. And it added some oalmeal goodness.I used McIntosh apples because I like apples that cook down.
- 8 apples, peeled. cored and sliced thinly
- 1⁄2-1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄4 cup white sugar
- 3⁄4 cup flour
- 3⁄4 cup oatmeal
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 1⁄2 cup butter
- 1.Generously spray a crock pot with non stick cooking spray, line with apples. Sprinkle the white sugar and cinnamon over top.
- 2.Mix together flour, brown sugar, and oatmeal. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until you get pea size pieces of butter. in a bowl.
- 3. Cover the apples with this mixture.
- 4. Pack the flour-oatmeal-brown sugar-butter mixture. Cook on high for 3 hours.
- 5. Use a medium size crock pot to make this. Using a large crock pot will probably not work well as the ingredients will be too spread out and may burn around the edges.
- 6. Serve with vanilla ice cream.
Delicious! Changed it a bit - I used salted butter, added 1tsp of allspice, just a touch of nutmeg, and 1/2c apple cider. Cooked high for 2 hours and everything was the perfect consistency, I think 3 would have turned it to mush. Yum!
I used 6 Cortland apples because they tend to be large. I think they made the dish rather mushy. The topping didn't "crunch up" like I thought it would, but...it was super easy to put together, nice and sweet, and did brown up a bit on the sides. Maybe my crock pot was too small. At any rate, it was good and "apple-y." Thanks for sharing. Made for Spring, 2010 PAC.
