I told you the Crock-Pot can do almost anything! This is another goodie!
6 - 8 medium unpeeled baking apples, washed and cored,
but not all the way thru to bottom
2 tablespoons raisins (optional)
1/3 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 - 3 tablespoons butter
1 hand-full of red cinnamon candies
Mix raisins (if using) with sugar; fill center of apples with this. Sprinkle cinnamon and a few (4-5) cinnamon candies in center, and dot with butter. Place apples in Crock-Pot, stacking if necessary to fit; add 1/2 cup water. Cover and cook on *Low* overnight or 8 hours. If using a large 5-quart Crock-pot add a bit more water.
