photo by:kraft
What’s better for fall than a spiced pear crisp with cranberries and a dollop of whipped topping? Nothing. (And it's so worth the wait in the slow cooker!)
20 min
4 hr 20 min
10 servings, about 1/2 cup each

What You Need

pkg.  (3.4 oz.) JELL-O Vanilla Flavor Instant Pudding
cup  sugar, divided
tsp.  ground cinnamon
 fresh pears, peeled, cut into 3/4-inch-thick slices
cup  fresh or frozen cranberries
Tbsp.  butter, melted, divided
 vanilla wafers, coarsely crushed
cup  PLANTERS Sliced Almonds

Make It

MIX dry pudding mix, 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon until blended. Toss fruit with 1/4 cup butter in large bowl. Add pudding mixture; mix lightly. Spoon into slow cooker; cover with lid. Cook on LOW 3 to 4 hours.

MEANWHILE, combine crushed wafers, nuts, remaining sugar and butter in shallow microwaveable dish. Microwave on HIGH 1 min.; stir. Microwave 1-1/2 to 2 min. or until golden brown, stirring every 30 sec. Cool.

SPRINKLE dessert with crumb mixture just before serving.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Special Extra
Top each serving with a dollop of thawed COOL WHIP Whipped Topping.
Important Note
For best results, do not cook this dessert on the HIGH heat setting since it tends to break the fruit down too quickly resulting in fruit with a mushy texture.
Purchasing Pears
Look for pears with a fragrant aroma and coloring characteristic of their variety. Skins should be free from cuts and bruises. A ripe pear is one that feels slightly firm, but gives a bit to gentle pressure at the stem end.
