Forget spending hours rolling out pie crust (only to have it crumble and fall apart) or peeling apples. This fall, the only prep you'll need to do for your favorite apple pie is warming up your crock-pot! This dessert (technically more of a crisp) cooks itself for hours in the slow cooker so you can have a few more hours of me time.

Crock pie apple pie

Because this pie is made in a crock-pot, it will resemble more of an apple crisp than a pie. However, the crispy, flakey dough on top paired with the luscious, caramelized apple give it a decadent pie flavor. Paired with some soft vanilla ice cream and you have the world's best (and did we say easiest) dessert ever! You may never make a real pie again!
