Recipe 55 : Praline Apple Crisp

6 medium apples, sliced
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 cup quick cooking oatmeal
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup flour
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into pieces
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup toffee bits

Put apples and cinnamon into a Ziploc bag; shake until apples are coated with cinnamon.  Pour apples into a greased Crock Pot.  Mix remaining ingredients together and spoon over the top of the apples.  Cook on LOW 4-6 hours.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.

This is a perfect winter recipe to use up all those apples you bought and haven't gotten around to eating!  I even made this almost sugar free!  I used the Splenda version of brown sugar and sugar free ice cream.  The only sugar in this is the small amount of toffee added in the mix- which could easily be taken out.  I've never used the toffee bits before- they can be found in the baking aisle right next to the chocolate chips.  I let this cook for about 5 hours, although it probably would have been finished at 4 hours.  Also wondering if using peaches would be just as delicious ( have to wait some more months to try that out though! ).  This recipe came from Pillsbury's Best Slow Cooker Recipes cook book.
