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…
or with a scoop of ice cream.
Warm and yummy from the oven…it’s a perfect dessert for Autumn!
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.
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.
