I had a bunch of pears that were ripe and I did not want them to go to waste. I was having guests over for dinner and I wanted to make a dessert. I did not want to make a plain fruit crisp so I decided to sweeten the fruit with caramel sauce. The caramel sauce paired wonderfully with the pears and made a delicious dessert. This crisp was simple to make and if you don't have pears, apples would taste great too. I also have a recipe for homemade caramel sauce that you make in the slow cooker.
1/4 cup apple juice
1/2 cup caramel sauce
1 pouch sugar cookie mix
1/2 cup butter, soften
Oven 400 degrees
1. Pour the apple juice in a large bowl, this will keep the pears from browning
while you are cutting into pieces.Peel the pears and cut them into bite size
2. Place the pears into the apple juice and stir well. Microwave the caramel
sauce for about 30 seconds to soften. Then stir into pears, coating well.
3. Place the pears in a large baking dish.
4. Combine the cookie mix and soften butter until well mixed. I like to use
my food processor for this step, to make it easier.
5. Crumble the cookie topping all over the pears and bake for 30-45
minutes, until topping is lightly brown.
6. Serve with whip cream or vanilla ice cream on top. Drizzle with
