Desserts in a slow cooker??? Hmmm, never have really done much of that before, but how easy is it to cook, custards, cobblers, souffles, pies, cakes, and more. I was excited to try this cookbook out, so I started with a Pineapple Crisp.
I let Ken choose from the cookbook entitled Slow Cooker Desserts and he selected this luscious Pineapple Crisp. The ingredients sounded different to me but I was game to try.
It created a decadent sweet pineapple dessert, hot, right out of the slow cooker. Add a scoop of ice cream and wow is this good!! So easy that a weeknight meal can include a delicious dessert like this one.
Having unexpected company? This dessert and many others in this cookbook can be created in no time and the slow cooker does all the work.
Desserts like orange cheesecake, German chocolate cake, peach cobbler, and triple chocolate brownies are all in this cookbook plus so much more. With lots of pictures and easy to follow instructions you can have a dessert with no hassle at all.
Grab this little cookbook and you will have many easy delicious recipes at your fingertips. ENJOY!!

Far and away the best recipe EVER for pineapple crisp…and a super simple, easy recipe to boot! This is my go-to recipe, and this pineapple crisp is now a regular side dish – er, I mean DESSERT…yeah that’s it – a DESSERT – at my house! (LOL – it gets to be more of a side dish at meals here; it is THAT delicious).
Also, THANK YOU for creating this recipe using Ritz crackers (a staple in my cupboard) instead of bread, which always seemed to get soggy on me in fruit crisp recipes.
PS By the way, this freezes brilliantly (as if you’d have any leftover to freeze)
