Yesterday I made this pear crunch and we ate it for an after school snack:
I gathered up these ingredients:
I put some crushed pineapple, 1/4 c. apple juice, some dried cranberries, 1 1/2 tsp. quick-cooking tapioca, and 1/4 tsp. vanilla in the Crock Pot:
I sliced 2 pears in half and put them cut side down in the pineapple mixture:
I cooked in on low for about 3 1/2 hours:
I arranged the pears on serving plates and topped them with the pineapple mixture and granola:
I really liked this one. It didn't have all the added sugar, but it was sweet enough. The kids liked it too. It was a nice afternoon snack.
