Crockpot Apple Cobbler


A cobbler in the crockpot may sound odd, but trust us: This dessert will make you a believer. The crispy edges, buttery cobbler topping, and subtly sweet apple filling just might make this your new favorite fall dessert.

Serves 8

for the filling:

8 apples (we like a mix of Granny Smith and Fuji)

⅓ cup Sugar in the Raw

1 pinch kosher salt

½ teaspoon ground cinnamon

zest and juice of 1 small Meyer lemon

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

for the topping:

½ cup Sugar in the Raw

1 cup all-purpose flour

1 tablespoon baking powder


1 egg

6 tablespoons unsalted butter

to serve:

vanilla ice cream (optional)

1. To make the filling, peel and core the apples, then cut into ¼-inch slices. Toss in a bowl with remaining ingredients and place in the crockpot.

2. To make the topping, combine sugar, flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt in a large bowl. Add egg and mix with your hands until the dough is shaggy.

3. Distribute the flour mixture evenly over the apples.

4. Cook the butter in a small sauté pan over medium heat until just starting to brown.

5. Pour the brown butter over the cobbler, set the crockpot to the slow-cook high setting, and let cook for 4 hours.

6. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
