Pear Cobbler Recipe2019-09-12
Fall is quickly approaching, and that gives us the perfect opportunity to make something with seasonal fruits. Of course, you can make do with the canned variety, but working with fresh ingredients almost always gives better results. Among the various fall fruits, one of the easiest to work with are pears. Bosc and Anjou pears, in particular, are really good for baking since they can hold their shape and texture really well.
One of my favorite desserts to make for its taste and simplicity is the cobbler. This traditional baked dessert is made with fruits, filling a crust made with batter, biscuits, or dumplings. The origins of this dish and its varieties can be traced back to the British American colonies. The first cobbler was a result of improvising on a dish called suet pudding since the ingredients and cooking utensils the settlers had were lacking to make the dish
