This is my version of a recipe I saw on a cooking show. When the enticing aromas of this down-home dessert drift into the kitchen, it's hard not to take a peek in the slow cooker, but keep that lid on! For a really decadent dessert, top servings off with vanilla ice cream.—Sherri Melotik, Oak Creek, Wisconsin

"Very easy to make and hubby and I love it ...with or without ice cream. Also delicious cold...Before dinner I made this with peaches this time instead of the pears.....an hour to go and I'll find out if i like it as much. If you like Cherry pie.....you will love this desert...and the crumbles are very good!!"

"It was easy and good, but it was also overly sweet. My family and our guests felt like it needed a little tartness. I think I might make it again but would add some lemon juice/zest? Possibly some dried sour cherries?"
