I used half the sugar based on these other reviews and it was perfectly sweet, but I may want to up the cinnamon next time for a bit more punch. Otherwise, it was a really yummy applesauce (which is what it turned into the moment I stirred in the vanilla). I'm using the leftovers in pancakes this morning!

Sturdy apples are flavored with cinnamon and vanilla in this slow cooker apple compote. Top with low-fat vanilla ice cream and a sprinkling of toasted walnuts for dessert.

I enjoy making a sundae out of this recipe with walnuts and Fage 0% plain yogurt.
I cooked this for 4 hours and when I checked, it was nearly pureed. I also used about 3/4 of the amount of sugar and it was still more than sweet enough. A matter of taste, but more can always be added later. Next time I'll use 1/2 the amount of sugar. I liked it even though it was over cooked (my fault). Worth making again.
Love it! I put in more apples and less than 1/8 c. of sugar which is less than half of what the recipe called for and it's perfect. I did add a little more cinnamon as well. I'm looking forward to mixing it into my breakfast oatmeal tomorrow morning!
The recipe makes about 8 half cup servings.
