Pear Cobbler..Simply made

Here in Georgia, the weather has been wonderful with warm afternoons and cool crisp mornings.

I have a pear tree that stands proudly in my backyard. Pears are hanging heavily on the tree’s branches  and also are laying on the ground. The squirrels have also enjoyed the pears.

We picked pears yesterday and the cool morning today inspired me to heat the oven and make a cobbler.

This recipe gives more of a  cake like topping. If Fall has a taste and smell, the spice and warmth of this cobbler would be it for me and my gang. Ice cream melts lovely on top too!

Yes, my home smelled like the soon - to - come, the impending and most welcome season of Fall!

2 cups sliced pears
½ cup sugar

Combine all dry ingredients, including remaining 1/2 cup of sugar.
Mix well.
Beat egg and add to milk.
Slowly combine with dry ingredients to make a batter.

  1. I haven't had pears in a while. This recipe looks like a good reason to remedy that! Thank you!

  2. Your ingredient list didn't have eggs on it. I assume the recipe needs one egg?
