Warm & Cozy Winter Recipes {Day 3}

Welcome back to another day of my most favorite recipes!
I hope you will get a chance to use these wonderful food ideas, and when you do, be sure to let me know how much you loved them! Today's recipe is the ultimate Winter comfort food!

Crock Pot Pear Crisp
(given to me at my local fuit orchard)
4 ripe pears
1/2 c. brown sugar
1/4 c. white sugar
1/2 stick butter, unsalted, room temperature
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 handful of oats, about 1 cup

Cream the butter and sugars in a mixing bowl. Add vanilla and cinnamon, mix well. Add oats and mix again, put aside. Peel pears and dice into 1 inch cubes, place in crock pot. Evenly top with oat mixture. Set the crock pot to LOW and cook for 4 hours. Best served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
Love the crisp? You can easily double the recipe for company!

What I love about this recipe is that you prepare it before dinner, and the whole house smells so yummy! The kids clean their plates so they can have dessert! It is SO delicious!
Like I 'diet' food here! LOL! No one should deny themselves fresh and exciting food! Just watch your portions, and maybe do a few crunches before hand! :)

See you tomorrow for Day 4!
