Quick and Easy Apple Pie Filling (crock pot method)

We used this super simple method of making apple pie filling last weekend for the harvest celebration at chippokes (which by the way, was amazing… If you missed it, I feel bad for you). But we started this early in the morning when we got up and in just a few hours it was ready for serving. We served it on top of plain cheesecake, which I didn’t get to try, but it definitely looked amazing! The apples are sweet with a lighter cinnamon flavor. Use any of your favorite apples, we used gala apples and they held up to the heat very nicely.

Crock Pot Apple Pie Filling

2 cups warm water

1/2 cup corn starch

6 cups diced apples

1 cup sugar (a little more if using tart apples)

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 Tablespoons lemon juice

Combine warm water and corn starch in crock pot with a wire whisk. Whisk until no lumps remain.

Add the remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Set your crock pot to low for 4 hours.
