Best Crockpot Recipes ~ Homemade Apple Cranberry Crisp

This homemade apple cranberry crisp recipe is sure to please! Fast and easy, my two favorite types of deserts!

If you like the taste of fall cranberries you will love this apple cranberry crisp recipe!  The tart cranberries really help to give this crisp a truly unique flavor.

Homemade Apple Cranberry Crisp
Total Cooktime: 2 hours
Serves: 4

What you will need:

  • 3 apples (Any kind - I personally like Granny Smith or MacIntosh)
  • 1 cup cranberries
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats (quick cooking)
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened

Here's a tip:  If you dread peeling, coring and slicing apples like I used to you may be interested in an Hand Crank Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer . This brilliant kitchen tool has saved me countless hours peeling apples by hand!

Peel, core and slice your apples. Place the apple slices and cranberries in your crockpot. Mix the remaining ingredients in a separate bowl and sprinkle over the top of your apples and cranberries.

Place 5 paper towels over the top of your crockpot. Place an object (I personally use a wooden spoon) across the top of your crockpot and then set the lid on the top. This will allow for steam to escape while keeping in as much heat as possible.

Turn your crockpot on high and cook for 2 hours or until cranberries are no longer firm.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipped topping.

Diabeticly Friendly Version:  If you want to make this recipe a little more diabetically friendly you could:

  • Substitute Splenda brown sugar for the regular brown sugar
  • Use a cholesterol-friendly margarine instead of butter
I would love to hear your experiences with this recipe including anything you have done to alter it to suit your family's tastes!
