When it comes to simple and delicious desserts, nothing really beats the recipe below. Thin slices of apples are covered in butter, sugar and spices before bubbling away in a slow cooker and filling your house with the aromas of fall. When they've finished cooking, you can top them with whipped cream or use them as a side dish for pork instead of applesauce. Whatever you decide, this is a recipe you'll keep making.
You can use just one kind of apple if you choose. I've used three varieties in this recipe: Granny Smith, McIntosh and Gala. I find the different sweet and tart notes play well off each other and makes this dish a little more interesting. But the dish is yours, so use whatever apple variety you like best.
