Love the raisins in this. Reduced sugar to 2 tablespoons and used cinnamon instead of apple pie spice.
FABULOUS!!! Absolute perfect blend of sweet and spicy. Used Apple Pie Spice for the apple pie spice which was also wonderful. I cooked mine on high for about 2.5 hours and then put them in the fridge for the flavors to fully develop. . .then warmed up before serving. Will certainly make this again and have shared the recipe with friends.
YUM, these were soo tasty for breakfast this morning! Loved the added raisins and apple pie spice.
I dont own a crock pot, so I made these in the microwave, which worked out nicely. I had organic apples, so I left the peel on them and also I left out the sugar.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this keeper with us, bmcnichol!
Made and reviewed for PRMR October 2011.
So yummy! I cooked them for our dessert tonight and topped with homemade light vanilla ice cream! :) I used Apple Pie Spice since I didn't have any apple pie spice in the cabinet and stevia about 1/4 tsp instead of splenda. What a yummy fall recipe or anytime of year!
Delicious! I cut the recipe in half and used 2 granny smith apples. I used pumpkin spice because I didn't have apple pie spice and just use water for the apple juice and the flavor was absolutely wonderful. I cooked mine on low for 3 hours and the apple had a slight bite to it. I do think scattering some sliced or slivered almonds on top after cooking would be great. I served it with Weight Watchers Roasted Pork Tenderloin and Herb Roasted Cheddar Potatoes. Thanks for posting. :)
These were very good. Mine only took about two hours as well. I followed the recipe exactly as stated. Very tasty!
I bought a new crock pot tonight and wanted to try it out , with a " quick crock pot recipe " I made the recipe as written and was able to have it finished in 2 hours on High. My kids loved it as did my DH. Every time I make a new recipe I ask " is this recipe a "Do Again " the answer I got was a big YES. Thank you for such a good and simple recipe :)
This is an easy and delicious recipe that can be a side dish or a dessert. We really enjoyed it. I used granny smith apples and cooked them on high for a couple of hours. I will make this again. Thanks for posting.
Simple and lovely! Using 4 large Granny Smith apples, half of them peeled, half not, I subbed Craisins for the raisins and likewise SF cranberry juice. Anticipating tartness, I increased the Splenda by 2 T. They were tender after 2 hours so I turned off the crock pot. I suspect that after 6-8 hours, I would have had applesauce. ;-) Served as a side with pork chops, this recipe was wonderful! Thanks for sharing!
This is really lovely and very easy. It perfumes the house with the wonderful scent of apples and spice while cooking. I skipped the raisins to cut sugar and scattered in some sliced almonds instead and skipped the butter/margarine (didn't miss it at all). This would be a great way to use up a surplus of fall apples! They cook down and I could easily see a guy eat this entire recipe. It tastes like apple pie without the crust, YUMMM.
