House of Hawthornes has a yummy Autumn sweet side to compliment your menu! Finding it on Pinterest, I knew it would be easy, a MUST, and yummy, a REAL MUST. Mr. H & I grew up with our mothers baking apples, sometimes topping it with a scoop of ice cream! A neat feature of this recipe is you can use your crockpot! Enjoy!
6 large apples (Gala's were used here)
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup apple juice
1/4 cup slightly chopped walnuts AND/OR 1/4 old fashioned oats
Wash and core apples. Pair off a 1 inch strip of the skin around the top of the apple to prevent the apples from splitting.
Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon, butter and walnuts (and/or oats) together in a large bowl and fill each apple with this mixture.
Place apples in the slow cooker and add the apple juice around the bottom of the apples.
Turn crockpot on high heat & cook for 2 1/2 to 3 hours until apples are soft when checked with a fork.
Serve as is or add a scoop of ice cream and caramel sauce when platting it!
