This may be my new favorite side dish! Of course it would be, it is a sweet side after-all! But really, these apples are so easy and sooooooo good. They come out soft and sweet with a little bit of cinnamon spice. Jax and I could eat a whole batch, I am quite sure of it! We did share a few with Matt, begrudgingly. These sweet apples were perfect alongside a nice salty slice of ham. What a fun fall meal!
MiMi came up with the original recipe a few weeks ago. Hers were so good! I cut back on the sugar and butter in this recipe and we didn't miss it at all!
Warm Cinnamon Spiced Apples in the Slow Cooker
6 apples (you'll want to use a variety that stands up to cooking)
2 tsp cinnamon (or more)
2 T honey
1 tsp vanilla
2 T dark brown sugar (light brown would work fine)
1 T butter
- Core and slice apples, place in slow cooker (I used my 4 qt insert)
- Place remaining ingredients on apples.
- Cook on high for 4 hours, gently stirring when there's an hour left.
- If you want a thicker "syrup," add a slurry of 1-2 tsp corn starch to about the same amount of water at the three hour mark. Stir into the apples' juices and allow to cook on high for the last hour.
- Serve warm
