Slow cooker recipe: Baked pears

pears

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
  • butter

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!

  1. How come the directions state it’s a 45 min recipe….and the actual recipe calls for 3 hours in a crock pot???
