Crock Pot Apples

recipe adapted from Skinny Chef

Can we just take a moment to mourn the loss of the evening sun? Since Daylight Savings Time ended, my kitchen is so dark by the time we eat dinner that there is no natural light for picture taking. So now you have ugly yellow pictures from now until spring. Let us mourn.........

 Durn Mother Nature. Okay thanks. We can move on. 

This apple dessert is so great. It's basically apple pie without the guilt! Also, it's a crock pot recipe, so you can get it all prepared and cooking before dinner, and then have it piping hot and ready when it's time for dessert!

Or, if you like to live life on the edge, you could even serve it next to a nice grilled pork chop. But only if you're feeling brave.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 Gala or Macintosh apples, cored
1/2 cup apple juice or apple cider

In a large bowl, mix brown sugar, walnuts, butter, and cinnamon. Stuff the apples with the filling and place them in the crock-pot, being careful not to let the filling spill out of the bottom hole. Pour in the apple juice or cider. Cover and cook 2 1/2 to 3 hours on high heat until the apples are soft and begin to collapse.

I make a similar baked apple. You just put some cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins in a cored apple (leaving the skin on the bottom of the core as a plug. Then top the apple with a large pat of butter. Put in a pyrex and bake.

Also, walnuts? Who are you?
