Day 295: Slow Cooker Apples

image

I made baked apples last week and even though they were good the recipe does need some fudging. This is the recipe that I more or less followed.

I added quick oats, tons more cinnamon, craisins and some chopped pecans I had on hand. As you can see in the photo, I forgot to add the cinnamon to the mixture, so I had to throw it on top of the apples.

The hubster and I felt that the quick oats (although tasty) sucked up the brown sugar and the sweetness from the apples. I tried to follow the quantities listed plus adding the extras and it barely filled four apples. Maybe I bored the centers too deep, but if you try the recipe I will advise you to make a little extra.

We served our baked apples warm with some vanilla ice cream that we found in our deep freezer. It was a pretty good dessert, but I feel like our apples from last fall would have been much tastier. Maybe if we get more sweet apples from our trees I will try this recipe again.

Do you have a favorite baked apple recipe?
I have had them when they were baked with red hots candy. If you like cinnamon and sweetness then it would be a good choice for you.
