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.
