Sweet treats can be slow-cooked as well as savory ones so here is a delicious dessert offering from my Slow Cooker Bible!
1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1/4 cup apple juice
3 tbsp dried cranberries
1-1/2 tsp quick-cooking tapioca
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 pears, cored and cut into halves
1/4 cup granola with almonds
Combine pineapple with juice, apple juice, cranberries, tapioca and vanilla in slow cooker; mix well. Place pears, cut side down, over pineapple mixture.
Cover; cook on low 3-1/2 to 4-1/2 hours. Arrange pear halves on serving plates. Spoon pineapple mixture over pear halves and top with granola.
