I received a Ninja 3-in-1 cooker for Christmas from my parents, so I’m going hog wild trying out a bunch of new recipes
Here’s my recipe for the most incredible baked pears that are so easy to make, and you can make them in your slow cooker!
You will need:
- 2-3 pears, sliced in half and cored
- 1/2 cup quick oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
You can use any type of pear that you like. I chose a more sweet pear, but I don’t remember the name of it. My favorite pears are Bosc, but I wasn’t sure if they would hold up, so I chose a harder pear.
The first step is to wash the pears, and then slice them in half, lengthwise. Then core out the center. A melon baller works great for this.
Then just fill the cores with the oats mixture. Place a pat of butter on top. If you have any mixture left over, place it on top of the butter. I had quite a bit left over, so I just poured the rest in the cooker. It made a syrup that I just poured over the pears when they were done. Then just cook in your slow cooker on high for about 3 hours, or until the pears are very soft.
This is the same recipe I use for my baked apples as well. I do prefer the apples over the pears, but the pears were really good too. Put a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top for an extra bonus 🙂 This is a very easy and delicious dessert!
