Now that my kids are older, it’s not uncommon for me to come home to an empty house. With three of the four out of high school and working or going to college, we try to make it a habit to get together regularly for a family dinner. Now that I’m working from my studio full time, I’m not at home as often to cook and bake like I was before. So this crock pot apple cobbler is a wonderful time saver, especially since I know I’ll be busy all day but want a warm and gooey dessert.
When you come home from work then run out the door for soccer practice, expecting company can be pretty stressful. Just toss together a batch of this sweet slow cooker apple cobbler and it’s one less dish you’ll need to worry about later. I’ve made this when friends come over, we’ve had it for Sunday supper dessert, and I’ve even made this recipe for a party! Everyone loves it, especially topped with vanilla ice cream with a little caramel sauce drizzled on top.
