Directions

  1. Mix flour, brown sugar, 1/2 cup of white sugar, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl. Combine butter with the flour mixture using fingers or a fork until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside.
  2. Whisk together 1/3 cup sugar, cornstarch, ginger, and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Place the apples in a slow cooker, stir in the cornstarch mixture; toss with lemon juice. Sprinkle the walnut crumb topping on top. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours or Low for 4 hours, until apples are tender. Partially uncover the slow cooker to allow the topping to harden, about 1 hour.

First off, (and I mean this in a polite way) for those of you saying there's no sense in doing this in a crock pot when you have the do the work either way with the apples, you are missing the point of having a crock pot in the first place. It frees up your time so that you do not have to keep such a watchful eye on it. My husband had to go work this morning, on a Sunday, and so he just switched on my crock pot for me when he left the house. Everything was already in there...and when I woke up, I had fresh apple crisp, already cooked and just waiting to be eaten. Moving on...this turned out perfectly! I left my apples in slices since they were small apples. I also adjusted this recipe to be gluten free and free of refined sugars. I actually mixed the walnuts in with the apples rather than the topping. And I used xylitol in place of sugar, adding some molasses to the crumb topping to add the richness of brown sugar. I don't care for ginger in my desserts, so I just used cinnamon and nutmeg for the spices. I also used a lot less sweeteners...only about 1/4 cup of xylitol in the apples and 1/3 cup in the crumb topping, with about 1/4 cup of the molasses. I also omitted the cornstarch and just used a few Tbsp. of GF baking mix. I used Earth Balance in place of butter, and it works great. I can tell you the taste is the same, even with my changes. I've made apple crisps the way as printed before going GF. They are both great.

I don't have a slow cooker so I did this in the oven, and I have to say I can't see why you would bother doing it any other way. Preparing the apples took the most time and you have to do it either way. I used half Granny Smith and half Macs and I added oatmeal to the topping, and baked it at 375 for about 40 minutes. The spice balance was excellent.

Very good and easy. I think next time I will add a little oatmeal to the crumb mixture. Otherwise it was great with a side of ice cream. We camp alot and I like to bring things to make in the crockpot, this was nice because it is done in 2 hours without heating up the house/camper. Thanks SDROSIE. I will make this again. Good flavors. UPDATE: Just as good the next day cold. Loved this and will make again.
