Next, core and chop the apples and pears. You can leave the skin on the fruit or remove it. That is totally up to you.

Mix together your cinnamon and sugar to make – you guessed it – cinnamon sugar.

  1. sprinkle of cinnamon sugar
  2. fruit
  3. remainder of cinnamon sugar
  4. oat topping mixture

Keepin’ it Crispy

Now comes a little trick to keep the crisp from becoming soggy while cooking in the slow cooker.

The trick to keeping this apple pear crisp crispy is… paper towels.

Yes, you read that right.

Simply draping paper towels over the top of the slow cooker before placing the lid on will help to absorb moisture. The result is a nice and crispy topping.

  1. Perfect! I was looking for a new pear recipe this weekend, love the slow cooker!

  2. What if all I have is canned pears?? My grandmother’s pear tree isn’t ready until July.

  3. So far it’s been in the crockpot on low for about 3.5 hours. Topping doesn’t look or taste done. I stirred it up before putting the lid back on. Guess I’ll keep ‘er cooking???
