Crockpot Pear Pudding
Pears are reasonably priced and available in most markets this time of year. This wonderful Crockpot Pear Pudding is a great way to make use of the fruit of the season. I am a Taste of Home blogger and I adapted this original recipe to fit a sugar free and lactose free diet. If you are not on a restricted diet I have also included the “regular” ingredients and the original recipe below 🙂
