Slow Cooker Butterscotch Pears #SpringSweetsWeek

This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.

These pears, made in a slow cooker, make your house smell delicious and free you up for prepping and serving dinner without having to worry about dessert.  When ready to serve place in a bowl and add a scoop of ice cream.  Life doesn't get much easier or more delicious than that.

Pears and Cinnamon

For this recipe I used Butterscotch Pears provided by Melissa's Produce and Cinnamon provided by Selefina Spices.  I thought it was fun to use Butterscotch Pears to make Butterscotch Pears LOL.

I love Butterscotch Pears and was happy to find them in this shipment from Melissas because they are wonderful.  I have never been able to find them at my grocers however so if you can't find Butterscotch Pears, any firm large pears will work.
