Baked apples in the crockpot – sounds good, huh? This really is so easy, and would be great a simple dessert when you have company! You can stuff the apples with any type of filling – I used goat cheese, but if you wanted this to be vegan, or nut free, or whatever – you can add whatever you want!
I used an apple corer to core the apples – if you don’t have one, you could use a knife, the apple corer just made it so much easier!

4 small to medium apples
1/2 cup goat cheese
2 tbsp pecans, chopped
1/4 cup pineapple, finely minced (either fresh or canned)
1 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
2 cups white wine, or apple or grape juice
In a small bowl, combine the goat cheese, pineapple, and rosemary. Chop the pecans and add to the mixture.
Stir to combine – it will be quite thick.
Take the apples, and using an apple corer – or a knife, cut out the core out. If you want to leave the bottom of the apple intact, you can do that – or just cut all the way through.
Stuff the cheese mixture into the middle of the apples where the core used to be.
Place the apples in the crockpot. Depending on what size crockpot you use, you could use less apples, or more apples.
Add the wine – just to about 1/3 of the way cover the apples. You can use any type of wine or juice you want – apple juice, grape juice, apple grape juice, it will flavor the apples, so use whatever you feel like! I thought the wine made it more of an adult dessert
Place the lid on the crockpot, set to high and cook for 2-3 hours, depending on your crockpot . You want the apples to be soft, and the cheese melty.
The apples are a little squishy, and not so photogenic, but so good!
Once you cut into them, you can see the cheese and pineapple mixture -
If you want to drizzle the apples with honey you can, but I love that this dessert has no added sugar!
