Poached pears are a delicious dessert that’s made of mostly fruit, and the cinnamon-vanilla flavor makes them a great option for the holiday season.

It’s also nice to find a dessert you can make in a slow cooker, since you don’t have to watch it as closely as something you’re baking. You just leave it for hours, come back, and it’s ready to go.

If it is the holiday season, you’ll probably really appreciate that downtime, considering how hectic things can get.
