When I think of fall, I think of apples.

And when I think of apples, I think of apple pies, apple sauce, apples and creamy caramel, and of course cinnamon apples!

So of course fall is my favorite season.

Easy Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples (With a secret ingredient!) #apples #holiday #slowcooker #crockpot

I’ve made cinnamon apples many times over the years, and I’ve discovered that cooking them in a slow cooker is not only the easiest way to cook them, it develops the best flavor.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples have a rich flavor and an ultra silky texture, from cooking low and slow over several hours.

They would be delicious with just a little butter, sugar and cinnamon. However, I’ve found adding two secret ingredients makes Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples even more wonderful…

Apple Butter + Bourbon.

Yep, a little Musselman’s Apple Butter and a nip of bourbon provide depth and complexity to cinnamon apples. The rich dark apple essence of Musselman’s Apple Butter intensifies the natural flavor of the apples, bringing out the very best of their autumn appeal!

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apples are great as a side dish, yet here are a few other tasty ways to enjoy them…

Just to name a few.

    That’s what I was wondering can you leave out the bourbon

    • Sommerposted October 31, 2014 at 6:48 am Reply

      Hi Kathy, Just substitute water or juice! :)

  12. Terryposted October 28, 2014 at 9:26 am Reply

    If I wanted to leave out the bourbon, would I need to add some other liquid, or just leave it out?

    • Sommerposted October 31, 2014 at 6:48 am Reply

      Hi Terry, You can leave it out and add water.

  13. Toniposted October 27, 2014 at 1:23 pm Reply

    How about canning them?

  15. Sharonposted October 25, 2014 at 12:00 pm Reply

    Could these be frozen?

    • Sommerposted October 26, 2014 at 6:13 pm Reply

      Hi Sharon! Yes, you can freeze them, but when they thaw the consistency is a bit softer. Thaw completely without stirring, or they will turn into apple sauce.

    Loving this recipe and looks so simple. How do you like your Kitchen Aid slow cooker….thinking I might need to invest in one.

    Not only does it develop the best flavor, as you said, I’m sure your house smells amazing! I think I’ll use this recipe for apple milkshakes and over baked brie like you suggested. :) Happy Friday!
