Fresh Pear Cobbler

Pear CobblerAs I've said before, I've been going through Maynard's archive and sharing the older recipes with updated pictures.  Wanting some inspiration, I Googled 'pear cobbler'.  Imagine my surprise when I saw my very own Good Stuff Maynard blog listed as the third option, and my picture as the first!  I'm so excited to have the new and updated recipe because it's one of the most visited recipes on Maynard!
    Ingredients:
    • 3  ripe pears, sliced
    • 1 cup white sugar
    • 1/4 cup butter
    • 3/4 cups flour
    • 2 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3/4 cups milk
    • 1 egg
    Directions:
      Preheat oven to 325*
    1. Put butter in 2-quart casserole and place in oven until melted, then remove from the oven.
    2. Mix pears with 1/2 cup white sugar and let stand. 
    3. Combine all dry ingredients and mix well. 
    4. Whisk together the milk and egg; slowly combine with dry ingredients & remaining 1/2 cup of sugar to make a batter. 
    5. Pour the batter over melted butter, (do not stir). Then spoon pears over the batter (do not stir) and bake for 50 to 60 minutes.

    Serve hot or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.

Tried this recipe and it was FAR FAR FAR beyond what I expected! DELICIOUS!!! I'll admit, I didn't have baking powder at the time but it still turned out great without it! Thanks for sharing!

This was a huge hit at my house. To say we la-la-la-loved it would be an understatement! We had French Vanilla ice cream with it. Mmmmm soooo goooood.....

I made this tonight and it was a hit - even The Man who does not have a sweet tooth liked it.

I accidentally left out the 2nd cup of sugar though! When it called to put the remaining dry ingredients in, I forgot it. It was still really good and perfectly sweet without the extra sugar and I also only used the 1/2 cube of butter.

Maybe next time, instead of the second full cup of white sugar, I'll try it with 1/2 cup of brown sugar...

Way too sweet -- Just do one cup of sugar and you'll save yourself some calories and taste the pears more. Good recipe.
