Crock-Pot Apple Pie

Isn't one of the most appealing aspects of camping dutch oven desserts? Remembrance of those desserts is probably what sparked this. 

 Yesterday, at noon I was craving something sweet and wanted to make a dessert for after our Sunday dinner. Except we didn't have any eggs, oil, or chocolate chips...which I'm pretty sure rules out every dessert possible. And then I saw a fruit basket full or apples that were going to go bad. After trying to find a recipe according to the ingredients we had in our cupboard...here is a compilation of three. 

This is the first dessert I've made in a crock-pot and after church our house smelled exactly how a house should on a cold day, warm cinnamon-y apple-y soooo good.
