Simple Slow Cooker Pear Butter Recipe

Move over apple butter, and say hello to this creamy pear butter. Made like it’s… sister? Cousin? This lightly sweetened pear butter recipe can be made in the crock pot – (this is how I did it), and what I was left with was a creamy smooth pear butter, with hints of vanilla and orange.

Serve your slow cooker pear butter recipe on toast, or on a fresh bagel with cream cheese. Sweeten up your oatmeal with a dollop or two of scrumptious spread and enjoy.
