Crock Pot Cinnamon Apples

Plug in the crock pot and let it do all the work when you make this easy Cinnamon Apples recipe! This recipe is the real definition of tried and true.

We make this autumnal treat at least once a year, but usually much more often than that! There’s just nothing better than a big warm serving of crock pot Cinnamon Apples with a dollop of sweet vanilla ice cream.

It’s all the goodness of Apple Pie, but without having to deal with the crust!

How to Make Cinnamon Apples in the Crock Pot

The only hard part of this entire recipe is waiting for the apples to finish cooking. Your kitchen is going to smell simply intoxicating, but be strong! Your patience will be so very rewarded. 

  1. Place the apple slices into a 6 or 7-quart slow cooker. 
  2. Add both varieties of sugar, butter, cinnamon, and nutmeg on top of the apples. Stir gently to combine the ingredients.
  3. Cover and cook on LOW for 2-3 hours.
  4. Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream.

Tips and Variations:

  • A firmer variety of apple is best because it will hold its shape and not fall apart as easily. We like to use Granny Smith apples.
  • Some crock pots cook hotter than others, so we recommend checking the doneness of the apples beginning around the 2 hour mark. Ours usually finish cooking at about 2 ½ hours.
  • It’s best not to stir the apples as the cook. Otherwise, they may fall apart and turn into more of an applesauce instead of cinnamon apples. Plus, every time you lift the lid of the slow cooker, you decrease the heat and have to cook the apples for longer. 
  • The apples on the very bottom of our batch were very soft and did fall apart a bit. The apples on top were perfectly cooked. This was great for mixing with whipped cream because the soft apples had a syrupy texture.

Storage and Reheating

Storage: Cinnamon Apples store well in an airtight container in the refrigerator for about 3 days. We do not recommend freezing.

Reheating: Leftover Cinnamon Apples reheat very well in the microwave, but even better back in the crock pot!
