Apple Pear Crisp in the Slow Cooker

slow cooker dessert: apple pear crisp

The best way to serve this Slow Cooker Apple Pear Crisp? Warm over vanilla ice cream and topped with caramel sauce. SO good! Everyone will be wanting more!






  1. In a large bowl, stir the flour, oats, brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, and nuts together until combined. Add the butter and mix with a pastry blender, fork or hands until pea-sized lumps are formed.
  2. Place the apple and pear slices in the base of the slow cooker and add the apple juice. Stir in cornstarch and apple juice.
  3. Sprinkle flour/topping mixture evenly over fruit.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours / high for 2 hours.  (make sure your slow cooker actually cooks on low- many of the newer ones actually run higher.  If your’s cooks hot, you may want to shorten the cooking time.)
  5. Serve warm with a scoop (or 2) of vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.


Recipe notes:

If you don’t have apple juice, substitute 1 tbsp lemon juice, and the rest water.
