Slow Cooker Apples with Cinnamon and Brown Sugar

Fresh apples baked in the slow cooker really makes it seem like fall is finally here!  This recipe makes the whole house smell delicious and fall-like!  Very easy to make and healthy too!  This only needs to cook for 3 hours in the slow cooker.  I prepared this in the early afternoon and put it in the slow cooker and by dinner time it was all done and ready for dessert.    The apples are very tender and the filling really sweet.  A great combo...perfect for a fall day!

I want to thank Reynolds for sending me a sample of their slow cooker liners because I did not even know that they existed.  I am so glad I discovered these. They really made clean up a snap!

These handy dandy liners fit right into my slow cooker.  Then when your finished they can be taken out and thrown away without any mess to clean up in the slow cooker.  Very helpful!

I found this recipe here at  and I have also included a printable recipe below.  Hope you enjoy!
