If there’s a fall dessert that begs to be made in a slow cooker, it’s got to be this Apple Cobbler. It’s warm, comforting, and the aroma while it cooks is just wonderful.
Besides being delicious, this cobbler is so easy to make. You really do need to add this recipe to your fall baking line-up!
Cobblers and crisps are pretty simple as desserts go, but I just love the added ease and convenience of making this in the slow cooker. It’s so nice to have a warm dessert ready to go on a chilly fall day!
My sixteen year-old loves apple desserts. So much so that he requested apple pie as his “birthday cake.” Everyone in the family loved this cobbler, but he was in dessert heaven. In fact, he had the leftovers for breakfast the next day (minus the ice cream) and could not have been happier.
You do want to use a tart apple in this recipe, to counter all the sugar. I recommend Granny Smith. And if you don’t have an apple peeler, corer and slicer, I highly recommend picking one up, especially if you cook or bake with apples often.
This cobbler is on the shorter end of cooking times for slow cooker recipes. I find mine is usually ready to serve after 4 hours. If you need to keep it in the slow cooker longer than that, I recommend turning it to the warm setting, otherwise it can get pretty crispy around the edges.
This apple cobbler is delicious on its own, but a scoop of vanilla ice cream pretty much makes it perfect!
