Pear Cobbler

I had a few pears left from the ones my mother-in-law brought to me and I decided to try a Pear Cobbler recipe that my Aunt Sara had given me years ago.  The recipe is very easy to make and it made my kitchen smell wonderful as it was baking!

The pears are combined with flour, sugar and spices.

Dot with butter.

Combine the pastry ingredients.

The pastry ingredients are rolled out and cut in strips.  After placing the strips on the pears, the cobbler is ready for baking. 

Oops, looks like some of my strips have ragged edges!  Somehow I just have a feeling my family won’t care though!

Hot from the oven and ready to enjoy!

You can serve the cobbler plain…

Pear Cobbler

4 c pears, chopped (about 6 medium pears)

1 T lemon juice

3 T All-Purpose flour

1 1/4 c sugar (if you’re using fresh pears)

1/2 t nutmeg

1/2 t cinnamon

Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl.  Add the pears and stir well to combine.  Put in a 8x8 baking dish (I sprayed my dish with Pam first).  Pour the lemon juice over the mixture and dot with butter.

Pastry:

1 c All-Purpose flour

1/2 t salt

1/3 c shortening

1/4 c shredded cheddar cheese

2-3 T water

Combine all ingredients and place on a floured surface.  Roll out the pastry and cut in strips.  Place the strips on top of the pears and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Dream, that looks absolutely delish and so fall-ish! I love warm desserts served with ice cream so that it melts a bit! Love the pic with the lights glowing in the background - so pretty and cozy at the same time! I'm rushing off to work right now but would much rather sit myself down to enjoy some of your pear cobbler and have a chat with you!

This looks beautiful. I'm not very brave about making my own pastry but yours looks beautiful, and I love the idea of the cheese in there - great flavour with the pears.
