Slow Cooking Thursday
For more great recipes, visit Sandra. There are loads of great recipes and blogs to view.
I found this recipe in "Fix-It and Forget It" cookbook. We liked this but none of us were crazy about it.
When and if I make it again, I will add more sugar the next time. The apples were a little tart still. I only used 4 apples and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. I also had to use my hand to get the final sugar mixed in with the butter and peanut butter. My fork just wasn't doing the trick so I gave up and used my hands and it blended together quicker. I only cooked mine for the 5 hours. Any longer and my apples would have been cooked to much. But, hey, it was a quick, tasty, and warm dessert for a cold winter day!
APPLE PEANUT CRUMBLE
4-5 cooking apples, peeled and sliced
2/3 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. quick-cooking dry oats
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. nutmeg
1/3 c. butter, softened
2 Tbsp. peanut butter
Place apple slices in slow cooker. Combine brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon and nutgmet. Cut in butter and peanut butter. Sprinkle over apples. Cover cooker and cook on low for 5-6 hours. Serve warm or cold with ice cream.
