Slow-Cooker Cherry Pear Buckle
I added pears to my cherry cobbler recipe to create this delightful slow-cooked buckle. You could also add fresh summer plums and berries to your cherries. You'll love this old-fashioned and pretty dessert. —Mary Anne Thygesen, Portland, Oregon
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Cook: 4-1/2 hours
- 6 medium pears, peeled and sliced

- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup cold butter
- 3/4 cup 2% milk

- Line inside of a 5-qt. slow cooker with a double thickness of heavy-duty foil; spray foil with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine pears, cherries, sugar and tapioca flour; spoon into slow cooker. Cook, covered, on high until bubbly, 4-5 hours.

This recipe looks awesome, I haven't tried it yet though. I did give it a 3 star after I looked at the amount of carbs in each serving....a whooping 86!! WOW! I hope I can find similar recipes with less.
