Country Store Fried Apples

This recipe was featured in our newspaper, and my family loves it. We eat these straight from the crockpot, but the paper mentions they would be good over oatmeal or frozen yogurt. It's like eating apple pie without the crust. This recipe makes 8 servings. There are 102 calories per serving or one Weight Watcher point. The house smells good when these are cooking!

5 to 6 cups firm, tart apples (like a Granny Smith)
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup apple cider (or use water if you don't have the cider)

Peel, core, and slice apples into medium to thick slices. Place apples, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small to medium slow cooker. Dissolve cornstarch in apple cider and blend well. Pour over apples and stir to blend. Cover and cook on low setting 5 to 6 ours; stir halfway through cooking.

Mary, thank you! This sounds wonderful and if it says 'crockpot', I'm in! If I had enough Granny Smiths I would make this today. -Tammy

I"m definately going to have to try that. My family loves apples about any way you cook them.

Ummm, yeah I could pretty much eat a crock pot full of those!!! Would you be able to use apple juice by any chance, you think? I've got some in the fridge I need to use. Putting those apples over oatmeal sounds so good I can't stand it!!! Hope you're doing well ~ ♥

Just the recipe I was looking for--just put it in the slow cooker. When I googled slow cooker fried apples, I got way too many recipes with loads of butter and bacon grease, not WW friendly at all. Can't wait til these are done.
