Slow Cooker Pear Butter

( Gina HomolkaAppetizersAmerican )

Bypass regular butter and whip up this sweet spread instead. This fall favorite pear butter is great stirred into oatmeal, Greek yogurt, or cottage cheese. It's also a wonderful spread over pancakes or dolloped on top of frozen yogurt. Maybe even try it over almond butter on toast. Delish any time of day! This new Royal Riviera@reg; Pear butter recipe was developed by Gina Homolka from Skinnytaste.
