Brandy-Laced Pear Brown Betty

Here's a new twist on the classic dessert Apple Brown Betty, but made with pears and spiked with brandy (or brandy extract, if you prefer). This tastes great served warm with a scoop of regular or dairy-free vanilla ice cream alongside. You may use your choice of Anjou, Bosc, or Bartlett pears.

Ingredients
4 cups cubed white bread
3/4 cup firmly packed light brown sugar or a natural sweetener
1/4 cup pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons corn oil or other mild-tasting oil
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon salt
4  medium-size ripe pears, peeled, cored, and chopped
2 tablespoons brandy or 1 tablespoon brandy extract
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
Directions
In a large mixing bowl, combine the bread cubes, brown sugar, maple syrup, oil, spices, and salt.

In a medium-size mixing bowl, combine the pears, brandy, and lemon juice.

Lightly oil a 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker and arrange the bread mixture and then the pear mixture in two alternating layers. Cover and cook on low for 3 hours, until firm. Serve hot.
