6 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and cut into eight pieces each
3 cups fine bread crumbs (I like the crunch of Panko)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped fine
Lightly spray your crockpot or slowcooker with nonstick cooking spray only on the bottom and a couple of inches up the sides.
Place the apples in the bottom of the cooker.
In a mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, butter, and nuts. Spread this mixture over the apples in the cooker. Place the lid on the cooker and cook on low for 3 to 4 hours until apples are tender. Or you can cook on high setting for 2 hours.
