    Mix flour, brown sugar, ½ cup of white sugar, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt together in a bowl

  2. Step Two

    Combine butter in with the mixture using a fork or your fingers until coarse crumbs form. Stir in walnuts and set aside

    I am making this now :) I didn’t have cornstarch. Should I use something else?

  2. Meredith

    I want to try this next weekend. I have 2 questions. 1. What size crock pot? I have a 4qt and a 7qt?
    2. What kind of apple is best in this recipe?
    Just want to say I have made a few differnet of your chicken recipes and they are awesome! Love your website!!!!

    Thanks for your comment. Glad y’all like the Apple Crisp. Just to make sure it gets done all the way through, it would probably be better to use 2 cookers.

  7. Tressa

    This is so good, I really want to make it for Thanksgiving and maybe Christmas too. Could it be doubled and still use a 6 quart? Or is it better off to just use 2 slow cookers?

  8. Tressa

    OMG this is amazing!!! Hubby and I loved it! Will definitely make again. I think I will put only half the amount of walnuts though, which is weird because I love nuts, but adding only half could cut some of the calorie content down and I just thought there were too many. Otherwise, it was amazing!!

    Thanks, Amanda! Yes, use any slow cooker that you have (4-6qt is ideal). Be sure to spray the inside with nonstick spray (I like to use Baker’s Joy). I love hearing that your family has loved your crockin’!!! Woot woot! Ask us anything, girl, and we’ll do our best to help you out! :))

  10. Amanda

    Is it ok to use a ceramic crock pot instead of the one you used for the Apple Crisp?

    I have used the crock pot some for meals, but it is now my new best friend..once I found your website. I have tried 3 meals from here and all 3 were a hit. That is not common in this house! I may be asking you tons of questions! :)) Thanks for this website….my Christmas list may consist of a new crock pot and your cookbook! :))

    Thanks for the tip, Beth! We do the same with several recipes, and even talked about it when we crocked pizza. :) That’s why this recipe is my #1 fave!!!!

  12. Beth W.

    Best.apple.crisp.ever. It was soooo good. I might make a suggestion in case it hasn’t been stated before… If you put a towel under the lid while it is cooking, it will absorb the moisture and the crust will be crispier. If you don’t put the towel under it, it dumps condensation all over the crust and may not get crisp. Will be my only apple crisp recipe.

    This was my 1st crockin’ dessert and it was a success! I used 5 Braeburn apples to make mine. Next time I’m going experiment and use half a cup of oatmeal & half a cup of flour for the crisp part for a little more texture. The walnuts gave this such a delicious flavor.

My husband and I are in the process of remodeling our kitchen, so right now all we have a camp kitchen with a convection/toaster oven, a crockpot and a couple of single burners. I’ve been looking for some crockpot recipes but all you can find on-line is the same ol’, same ol’. I’m so glad I found your site and can’t wait to try all the new recipes you ladies have. Thanks bunches!!!

    Did you leave the top off for at least 30 minutes, April? Glad you still liked it!

    I couldn’t get the top to “crisp” but it was delicious anyways! I used green delicious apples but I want to try it with a Sweetango or Envy apple next time (those are my favorite but I was afraid they may be too sweet)!

    This was so incredible! I didthis when my inlays came over and experimented on them and everyone loved it! The topping as nice and crisp, though in the center it was a bit softer, but still delish. I left it on “warm” for the house I had the lid off so that may have helped it crisp up. It was awesome andwill fix over and over! MIL asked for recipe!

    This is the very first recipe that I have ever made by myself in the Crockpot so I was kind of weary about how it would taste. But I just followed the instructions except I didn’t put any nuts or Walnuts in it since I’m not a Walnut fan, but it is sooo delicious!! Definitely deserves a 5 star rating. Some people were saying that they had a hard time with the crisp hardening but it is doing it just fine with the ones I made tonight, I think. Either way, it is delicious even if it doesn’t. Definitely a recipe I am passing onto others! Thanks Crocking Girls for posting this recipe!

    Forgot to mention that we also sometimes add some rolled oats/oatmeal.

    It is great with fresh peaches as well. Thanks girls.

    My huband cannot eat nuts and I’m not fond of most nuts, so we use a handful of Grapenuts cereal instead which adds a little chewiness/crunch.

    Easy to make !! Everyone Loved it!!

    I was thinking that using granola instead of nuts might work for these kind of recipes. That way you get the crunch without the nuts. This would be good for those with nut allergies or just don’t like nuts.
    Thanks for your comment, Nicole. Glad this recipe was a winner for y’all.

  25. Nicole

    I made this last fall and I am going to make it again. It was very good. Did not use the nuts because my kids are little and they don’t like them and I didn’t miss them. Not sure if my top got crisp but it didn’t matter. Super yummy with cinnamon ice cream! I just brought home a bag of apples from my parents’ orchard and this is a great wat to use apples. Don’t bother peeling your apples. The skins get really soft and even my kids didn’t mind.

    This was an easy recipe to put together. After the recipe cooked on high for 2 hours, I left lid off for another 2 hours waiting for it to harden. It never did. It was still delicious soft but I would have liked a little more crisp. My family loved it and ate it all. There were no leftovers.

    Good catch, James. We’ve asked the web people to make the correction. It should read 1/2 cup for both steps.

    @ Elizabeth…when this recipe was posted on facebook, people talked about subbing slivered almonds for the nuts or chopped up cinnamon toast crunch cereal. Both ideas sound yummy to me!

  28. James

    Can’t wait to try it, but the math on the white sugar doesn’t add up. Calls for 1 cup separated. 1/2 cup in Step one, 1/3 cup in step three??

  29. Elizabeth M.

    I’m dying to make this, but members of my family have nut allergies. Would this still be delicious if the walnuts are omitted, or do you have a nut-free substitution idea?

    Thanks for that catch, Linda. Getting it changed now. It should read: Place the apples in the bottom of the slow-cooker, then stir in the cornstarch mixture; toss with lemon juice
    It goes in between step 3 & 4

  33. Linda B.

    wonderful recipe…just wanted to let you know that in the recipe…it never states when to add the apples and lemon juice…
