Crock Pot Apple Cobbler

There’s something deliciously comforting about a warm dessert paired with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream, isn’t there? This crock pot apple cobbler will remind you of the dessert your grandma used to make, but in your case, it’s way easier. There’s no layering of ingredients and baking it for 35-40 minutes. Instead,  you’ll set it and forget it in your slow cooker. What could be easier than that?

One of your favorite desserts in the convenience of a slow cooker! Enjoy some warm crock pot apple cobbler with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream in just a couple of hours!

Easy Peasy Crock Pot Apple Cobbler

I don’t like using my oven unnecessarily, especially in the summer when it gets the house way too hot despite air conditioning. That may have something to do with our super old heat pump, but if I can find a way to avoid using the oven when it’s hot, I will. That’s why my Crock Pot is my go-to appliance for the summer months.

But ya know what? I love it all year round. And I love desserts in the Crock Pot even more.

Think back to your favorite desserts that your grandma, your aunts, or someone special in your life used to make. Is apple cobbler one of them? It is for me, though my love for apple cobbler didn’t come from a relative. Instead, it came from a little old church lady who made the best darn apple cobbler you’ve ever had in your life.

I wish I had her recipe. Alas, I don’t, but this one is pretty close. And yes, I just said ‘alas.’ I like old words, okay?

But you’re not here to listen to me babble on about eating apple cobbler in that tiny country church kitchen. You’re here for the recipe. Lucky for you, here it is:

Made this. Very disappointed. Was very dry even after adding water 3 times.

Hi Donella,

I would love to make your apple cobbler, but living in Australia it’s sometimes a bit difficult to find ingredients, and the apple pie spice is one of them. Could I make my own or is there anything else you could suggest that I could use.

Thank you.
