Smother slow cooked pears in a delicious caramel and maple sauce. Mmmm.
yellow- or red-skinned pears, cored from bottom leaving stems attached
cup caramel ice cream topping
cup real maple syrup
Grated lemon peel
Spray 5- to 6-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. Place pears upright in cooker. (If all pears do not fit in bottom of cooker, place remaining pears suspended between 2 others in cooker.)
In small bowl, mix ice cream topping and syrup; pour over pears.
Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes.
Remove pears from cooker; place upright on serving plate or in individual dessert dishes. Spoon about 1/4 cup topping mixture over each pear; sprinkle with lemon peel.
Add an additional layer of flavor by stirring in 1/2 cup of raisins or orange-flavored dried cranberries with the ice cream topping. Drizzle a little cream over the sauce that falls onto the plate.
