So a few weeks ago I told you about having a ton of apples and had to come up with a few apple recipes to use them all up quickly. I blogged my recipes for White Bean and Apple Chili and Apple and Turkey Meatballs. Both of which I adjusted from Stephanie O'Dea's website A Year of Slow Cooking. Today I'm going to give you my adjusted recipe for Baked Apples (original recipe found here).
- 5 apples
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup pecan pieces (it was what I had on hand)
- 1/2 cup dried oats
- 2 Tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup water
- Pour the water in the bottom of the crockpot and mix with the vanilla.
- Wash and core the apples, but dig out a little more for all the stuffing.
- In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, raisins, pecans, cinnamon, and oats.
- Stuff the apples. I dumped what was left over in the pot around them. I figured it would make decent oatmeal with the vanilla water.
- Put the apples in the vanilla water. Cook on high for 4 hours or on low for 6-7.
|Those apples WERE washed. They are fresh from a tree, so they aren't going to be grocery store pretty, but so much more yummy!|
I cooked mine for the 6-7 hours. They were a little mushy, so in the future I'm going to try the high for 4 hours. BUT they were good! I love really anything apples, so this was just a great "healthy" dessert (8 pts in Weight Watchers unless you share an apple with someone, then it's obviously 4 pts).
I love, love, love these and am happy that this colder season calls for such a yummy dessert!
