Make this delicious dessert for fall, Crockpot Apple Cobbler. It can be made gluten-free too!
Fall is coming, are you ready? I’ll say I do feel like I’m still stuck in March on the longest spring break EVER…but Fall surely is coming. That means that fall desserts and crockpot recipes will soon be on our regular menu.
Even if you are doing remote school or in-person school…it’s about to get very busy for most of us, so coming home to an Apple Cobbler sounds pretty fantastic!
What do you need to make Crockpot Apple Cobbler?
- Apple Pie Filling
- Yellow Cake Mix
- Light Brown Sugar
- Unsalted Butter
- Paper Towel
This can also be made gluten-free simply by using a gluten-free yellow cake mix. It’s a very easy swap.
Why do you use a paper towel for Crockpot Apple Cobbler?
When you are ready to cook this recipe, simply place a paper towel under the lid of the crockpot, just pull it tight to make sure it’s nice and secure. Then, the glass lid goes right on top.
What does this do?
This is a great crockpot hack that prevents condensation from dripping back on the food. It helps your cobbler to stay nice and crisp and not soggy.
Can you make Crockpot Apple Cobbler as Ninja Foodi Apple Cobbler?
This recipe for Crockpot Apple Cobbler can also be adapted to your Ninja Foodi using the “slow cooker” function as well. I cooked it on high for 4 hours with the Ninja Foodi.
When I made it in the Ninja Foodi, I did have to bake for a few minutes, in the end, to get the top browned.
If you enjoy this though, be sure to check out this Ninja Foodi Apple Crisp.
Can you make this Crockpot Cobbler with different flavors?
Absolutely! Crockpot Cobbler can be made with basically any flavor that you prefer using the pie filling of your choice. One of my favorites is Caramel Apple Pie Filling.
It can be made with peach, cherry, lemon, whichever you want to do!
What topping should you use for this recipe?
This recipe is best served with a side of whipped topping or vanilla ice cream and a drizzle of caramel sauce.

Sounds easy to make and looks delish! Thanks for the paper towel tip. Pinned.
Is it the same cooking time for fresh cut apples?
Mommy Hates Cooking says
I haven’t made this one with fresh apples yet, but here is one that uses fresh, you’d need to add a few ingredients to it like brown sugar and spices. https://spicysouthernkitchen.com/slow-cooker-apple-cobbler/
If I make it with cherry pie filling do I still add the cinnamon?
Mommy Hates Cooking says
I usually do but I’ve always done it with apple, so it’s going to be up to your preference.
