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.
