EASY PEAR COBBLER RECIPE

Pears are delicious. That’s right, I am going to be bold and declare that pears are even better than apples! I’m not hating on apples, they’re fine. But, pears are like an apple, they are just more versatile. Pears can be enjoyed with so many different flavors. Pears and blue cheese? Amazing. Spiced baked pears? Amazing. Pear cream filling for pastries…you guessed it, amazing. Today, it’s pears topped with a simple cake batter with lots of butter and baked. You can enjoy this Pear Cobbler for dessert, obviously, or you can have it for breakfast. This is a judgment-free zone here, and I won’t say anything if you decide to eat it for both breakfast and dessert!

WHAT IS A FRUIT COBBLER?

Cobblers date back to the British-American Colonies, much like many “American” recipes. They are a product of wanting to make recipes that they brought over from England but lacked readily available ingredients to make them, so they improvised. Traditionally cobbler is made with fresh fruit (and sometimes vegetables) and topped with batter or biscuit topping and baked.

WHAT DOES THIS PEAR COBBLER TASTE LIKE?

This is a delicious cobbler recipe! Pears are the main ingredient here, so you will be tasting a distinct fruit flavor. However, the fruit is not overpowering like some of the berry cobblers. Using pears allows you to get a good mix of fruitiness while not masking the buttery, caky topping mixed in. It has a great balance of flavors.

  • 4 cups pears, chopped
  • Granulated sugar – 1 1/2 cups

  • All-purpose flour – 3/4 cup

CAN YOU MAKE FRUIT COBBLER AHEAD OF TIME?

Yes, you can make this cobbler ahead of time. Just cover it up with a lid, or aluminum foil to keep it fresh. If you are waiting more than a couple of hours before serving, it’s best to refrigerate it.

CAN YOU FREEZE COBBLER?

You can freeze this pear cobbler. Store it in an airtight container to protect it from freezer burn.

WHAT TO SERVE WITH PEAR COBBLER?

Pear Cobbler and vanilla ice cream go hand in hand! They are the perfect pair! (Dad Joke – nailed it). However, since cobbler is traditionally served as a dessert, there are not many pairings needed, maybe some coffee or cold milk, and you are good to go.
