When I was younger, our local Chili's had a side of something very similar to this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples Recipe, but they removed it from the menu decades ago.
It was such a shame when I realized that it was no longer on the menu, because it was one of my favorite things to order!
Sometimes I would even order a side to go, to take home as a dessert.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples Recipe
This Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples Recipe reminds me so much of that dish, and it is super easy to make in the slow cooker, too!
Plus, the aroma of apples and cinnamon cooking all day will make your house smell AMAZING! Who doesn't love the smell of cinnamon apples cooking?
What I really love about this delicious dessert recipe is that it tastes a lot like the filling for an apple pie...but without the crust!
The filling is my favorite part of apple pie anyway, so that works just fine by me.
I absolutely love apple pie, and this really hits the spot without having to worry about making a crust, burning a crust...making a bad crust, etc. It's all of the apple pie goodness without any of the fuss!
Oh, and this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples Recipe is an easy recipe to double or triple, just use a larger slow cooker!

Directions for making this Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples Recipe:
Grease a slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray. I tend to use Pam because that is what I have always used, and like all good Taurus, I am totally a creature of habit. Will I try new nonstick cooking sprays? Yes. But when I am walking down the aisle at Publix, Pam is what I automatically grab!
You are going to begin by peeling and slicing the apples and placing them into the slow cooker. Easy enough.
Now, normally this is the most time consuming part of making anything with apples - the coring, peeling, slicing. BUT, it doesn't have to be difficult!
I use this Apple Slicer gadget to slice my apples and it is super quick and easy! It also ensures that all of the pieces come out uniform, so you don't have to worry about different bites being a different consistency.
In a small mixing bowl, combine both of the sugars, corn starch, cinnamon and nutmeg and mix it well.
Pour the mixture over your apples and stir it together well, until they are evenly coated. Top your apple mixture with cubes of butter, but do not mix this in. Just let them sit on top.
Cook your cinnamon apples, covered on low for 3-4 hours or until the apples are tender, stirring at least once halfway through.
See how easy that is? This is a really easy dessert to make in large quantities, or for the kids to have as snacks after school. Just scoop and serve! You can also use it as a topping for vanilla ice cream, or just add a dollop of Cool Whip or Whipped cream on top for an extra special dessert.
Again, see the apple pie connection? What's better than apple pie with a scoop of vanilla ice cream? YUM!
