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.
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.
