Butterscotch Apple Crisp

This sweet treat is a cozy way to warm up winter nights. Sliced apples are sprinkled with a tasty topping made with oats, brown sugar and butterscotch pudding mix. Served with ice cream, the dessert is always well received. —Jolanthe Erb, Harrisonburg, Virginia

    This makes a unique apple crisp with the butterscotch pudding mix. Next time, I will decrease the cooking time by one hour as my crockpot burnt it a tad.

    This apple crisp was very tasty! I loved the addition of the butterscotch pudding. The apples were perfectly tender and the topping was very flavorful with cinnamon.

    Very easy and very good! Love having the ease of a crockpot dessert and the house smelled yummy! Served with ice cream but I am sure it would be good plain or with whipped topping :-)

    We love this recipe! I work afternoons so I usually make dinner before I leave, this is a great way for my family to have dessert too. I doubled the topping and served with ice cream. Everyone loved it.

    Aside from peeling all the apples, this recipe is quick and easy! I love the crock pot aspect. It filled my home with wonderful smells, too! It got rave reviews at our church dinner. I'll devinitely be making this again. I doubled it very easily for my large crock.
