An easy recipe for Cinnamon Apples covered in a cider-maple syrup glaze. These sweet and tender apples taste like the inside of an apple pie. Only a few minutes of prep time; let your slow cooker do all the work!
5largeapples, peeled and sliced into 1/2 inch thick piecessee note
2tablespoonspure maple syrup
1 1/4teaspoonsground cinnamon
In a medium bowl, combine apple cider, 1/4 cup water, syrup, cornstarch and cinnamon.
Place the apples in a slow cooker. Pour the cider mixture over the apples. Cover and cook on low for 2-3 hours. Give the apples a stir every hour. The longer you cook them the softer they'll get. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or yogurt.
You'll want to use baking apples for this recipe, but I do not suggest using Granny Smith apples, as they are too tart. I recommend Honeycrisp, Pink Lady or Rome apples.If you'd like to keep the skins on the apples, you can. My family of taste testers preferred these apples without the skin. The skin will help the apple slices hold their shape better and they will boost the nutrition.
