Pear Cobbler Recipe with Apples is made with pears, apples, raisins and spices in a glazed crust of self-rising flous, brown sugar, milk, butter and nuts.
Pears are full of healthy nutrients.
They are plentiful in the fall and have a long storage life.
They make wonderful desserts and salads as well as healthy snacks.
I don't see many pear recipes online.
I wonder why, because they are delicious raw or cooked.
I have a pear tree in my front yard that has produced bushels of fruit each year for 20 years.
Consider planting a quick bearing tree, if you don't already have one.
You will soon be eating and canning enough pears each fall to last you an entire year to enjoy recipes such as this one.
Free food that is healthy and delicious makes a winning team.
Place pears, sugar and milk in a sauce pan on low heat.
Cover and cook until the pears start to get tender when
tested with a fork.
Remove from heat. Stir in spices, raisins and sliced apples.
Place in an oblong 11" x 9 1/2" baking dish.
Pour crust mixture over top. (Do not stir).
Sprinkle with nuts then sugar for the glaze.
Bake in a preheated oven 350F. until crust is golden brown and done when tested with the tines of a fork. (Takes about 30-35 minutes.)
Delicious served warm with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream.
Sprinkle whipped cream with a dash of nutmeg to add more decadent flavor.
