Slow Cooker Maple-Sauced Pears from the Betty Crocker site! 

Slow Cooker Maple-Sauced Pears

You Need:


6
pears
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/3
cup maple-flavored syrup
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1
teaspoon orange peel
1/8
teaspoon ground ginger
1
tablespoon cornstarch
2
tablespoons orange juice

To Make:

  • 1Peel pears. Core pears from bottom, leaving stems attached. Place pears upright in 3 1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker.
  • 2Mix remaining ingredients except cornstarch and orange juice; pour over pears.
  • 3Cover and cook on high heat setting 2 to 2 1/2 hours or until tender.
  • 4Remove pears from cooker; place upright in serving dish or individual dessert dishes.
  • 5Mix cornstarch and orange juice; stir into sauce in cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting about 10 minutes or until sauce is thickened. Spoon sauce over pears. 

    Note: This recipe was tested in slow cookers with heating elements in the side and bottom of the cooker, not in cookers that stand only on a heated base. For slow cookers with just a heated base, follow the manufacturer’s directions for layering ingredients and choosing a temperature.

Tips:

(Total time will vary with appliance and setting.)

Serve an elegant dessert! Place each pear upright on a pretty dessert plate. Spoon the sauce around the pears, and sprinkle with chopped toasted nuts or coconut. Spoon a big dollop of soft whipped cream alongside the pears, and garnish the plate with a twisted orange slice.

For a honey of a pear, use 1/4 cup honey instead of the maple syrup for a sweet change of pace.

Serves: 6
