Slow Cooker Baked Apples

Apple season is in full swing, and here in Virginia we are lucky to have several orchards nearby. Families flock to area apple orchards on the weekends for their annual tradition of apple-picking. Kids love climbing the trees to get that perfect fruit, and everyone enjoys the crisp, fresh air. When my family goes, we usually come home with bags and bags of apples.

This recipe puts all those apples to good use in an old-fashioned fall favorite. Warm apples topped with brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins are a perfect dessert. Your kitchen will be filled with the scent of autumn in no time.
