Apple Butterscotch Crisp Recipe

Apple Butterscotch Crisp Recipe

This dessert classic from Jolanthe Erb of Harrisonburg, Virginia gets a rich twist from butterscotch pudding. We had the warm apple filling bubbling to perfection in a mini slow cooker.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Cook: 2-1/2 hours YIELD:3 servings


  • 3 cups thinly sliced peeled tart apples (about 3 medium)
  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/3 cup cook-and-serve butterscotch pudding mix
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup cold butter, cubed
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional


  • 1. Place apples in a 1-1/2-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, flour, oats, pudding mix and cinnamon. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Sprinkle over apples.
  • 2. Cover and cook on low for 2-1/2 to 3-1/2 hours or until apples are tender. Serve with ice cream if desired. Yield: 3 servings.
