Crockpot Caramel Apple Crisp (Day 23)

I’ve signed up for a 31 day  writing challenge.  Everyday in October, I am posting a new slow cooker recipe, a link to a previous posted slow cooker recipe, or a link to a recipe from another blog.

I’m over two-thirds of the way through the challenge.  I’ve shared a dip, main dishes, and soups.  This is the first time I’ve shared a dessert.

Last Saturday, Hubby and I were discussing how I’m planning to make most of our Thanksgiving dinner in the crock pot.  He told me that I would probably make an apple crisp in the crock pot for our Thanksgiving dinner.

He didn’t know that I had already planned to make a crisp in the crock pot for our Sunday night dinner.

Every Sunday, we have dinner with my mother-in-law.  Sometimes she cooks or we go out to eat.  Recently I’ve been cooking the dinner.  The majority of the meal was cooked in the crock pot.  The whipped cream and veggies were the only parts of the meals not cooked in the crock pot.

This dessert was delicious.  I put the caramel drizzle on the crisp.  It really didn’t that drizzle.  The crisp was sweet enough without it.

This crisp is especially delicious with whipped cream on top.  I usually make my own whipped cream now.  Homemade whipped cream is delicious and yummy!
