Recipe

Have you seen the honey crisp apples that are available right now? Around me they are amazing. Crisp and sweet and delicious. They are almost as good as the Macintosh apples I miss dearly from growing up in New England. And my favorite way to eat apples, apple crisp. Normally apple crisp is loaded with butter – the recipes I looked at had over a stick – but this one is lightened up but still packed with flavor. This is a rift on a weight watchers recipe that ingeniously uses apple butter to mimic some of the richness from the butter and made a bit more healthy with whole wheat flour. And just in case it suits you, this makes a delicious breakfast over some Greek yogurt.

Then add in the butter cube and using your hands, mash together until you get a crumble like consistency.
  2. Add the apples to the bottom of the slow cooker. Add the lemon juice and apple butter and stir to coat apples.
