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.


  1. 1.Generously spray a crock pot with non stick cooking spray, line with apples. Sprinkle the white sugar and cinnamon over top.
  2. 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. 3. Cover the apples with this mixture.
  4. 4. Pack the flour-oatmeal-brown sugar-butter mixture. Cook on high for 3 hours.
  5. 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. 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, 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.
