A few months ago I posted the recipe for my favorite peach cobbler; in that post I mentioned a variation that a friend of mine had come up with, making it into a yummy pear cobbler with one substitution (pears for peaches) and one addition, cinnamon. This weekend I found myself trolling the kitchen cabinets and refrigerator looking for something to make for a "goodie". When I spotted the jar of pears, I knew what a treat I had in store.
- 1 c flour
- 1 c sugar
- 1 c milk
- 1 stick (1/2 c) butter or margarine
- canned peaches or pears (these can be commercially canned or home canned)
- cinnamon (forgot to include this in the picture)
Put the butter or margarine in a 1 to 2 Q baking dish, and place in the oven while it preheats
Meanwhile, mix the flour, sugar, milk and a sprinkle of cinnamon into a thin batter
Once the butter is melted, pour the batter into the melted butter in the baking dish.
Add sliced fruit of your choice--peaches, or in this case pears; you could probably do this with apples, as well.
