Stuffed Apples ~ In The Crock-Pot or In The Oven recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

Piping hot, tender apples, filled with dried fruit and soft pecans, baked with brown sugar and spices; this was an excellent dessert that didn’t heat up the house or require more than a few minutes of effort on my part.

I baked the apples in the crock-pot this time. However, I’m including oven directions as well, if that is more your style.

I’ve made Cinnnamon Baked Apples and Brown Sugar Cinnamon Applesauce in the Crock-pot many times, but this was the first time I tried stuffing them. I loved the way all of the different flavors combined and my kids went nuts over these apples.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 5 hours
Total Time: 5 hours 20 minutes
Servings: 4 servings


  • 4 granny smith apples
  • ¼ cup dried cranberries
  • ¼ cup raisins light and dark work well
  • cup chopped pecans
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon cardamom or cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons butter


  • Wash and core the apples, removing at least a 1″ center in each apple. Set the apples on a plate. Stir together the dried fruit, pecans, brown sugar, salt and cardamom or cinnamon. Fill each apple with this mixture, packing it firmly into each apple.
  • CROCK-POT DIRECTIONS: Place the filled apples in the bottom of the crock-pot. If you have a smaller crock-pot, you can raise a couple of the apples by sitting them on top of wadded up balls of foil in between the other two apples. (This is how I cooked ours this time.) Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter. Cover with lid and cook for about 2 hours on high, until the apples are fork tender. If you would like to cook on low, this should take 4-5 hours.
  • OVEN DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 425°F. Place the filled apples in a muffin tray. Top each apple with a teaspoon of butter. Bake until fork tender, about 20 minutes.

    Mary – my mom used to bake apples with spices and sugar. I love the way it makes the house smell like home. Lovely photos and the addition of raisins sounds terrific.
