This Apple Pecan Crisp is a definite favorite in our Test Kitchen. Maybe because the warm, sweet crisp melts the vanilla ice cream for the taste of old-fashioned comfort that everyone loves.

What You'll Need

  • 5 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cut into 1/4-inch-thick slices
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup cold butter
  • 3/4 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • Vanilla ice cream

What to Do

  1. Place apples in a lightly greased 5- to 6-quart slow cooker; drizzle with lemon juice, and toss to coat.
  2. Combine flour and next 3 ingredients in a medium bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 forks until mixture resembles coarse meal; sprinkle over apples.
  3. Cover and cook on HIGH setting 2 to 3 hours, until apples are tender. Sprinkle with pecans. Serve warm with ice cream.

What if you have a little crock pot that's not 5-6 quarts?

You can use a 3-4 Quart slow cooker. Just decrease the amount of apple and other ingredients. It just depends on how sweet you want the dish. I would decrease the apples, but use the same amount of butter and brown sugar. Enjoy.

I really liked this in the crockpot but also tried it in the oven and had no problems cooking it. I occasionally poked the apples to see if they were done. My sister says she just sautees the apples in butter before she puts them into the baking dish and then bakes it for 30 minutes. I think I will try that. She also said she used a mixture of apple types because that is what she had on hand.

I do not have a slow cooker, can this be made in the oven? Sounds like a good recipe.

How do I get the answer to my question that I asked regarding Apple Pecan Crisp?

I have a similar recipe, that I make in the oven. I would just follow steps one and 2 ,but put into a baking dish, cover loosley with foil and bake at 350 for about 30 min or so, till the apples are tender. Hope this helps.

Does the flour mixture form a type of crust? Or is it all kind of jumbled together?

Mine came out as a juicy jumpled crust on top of the apples. When I baked it in the oven, it was more crispy.

Cook on High 2 to 3 hours???

I did mine in the crockpot on high for 2 hours and it seemed okay to me.
