Ultimate Pear Cobbler Recipe

Updated on November 7, 2014

Joy Of Comfort Food


It's Pear Season!

I have been guarding my pear tree for months now, from the moment I first saw a little pear. The squirrels like them too, that's why I'm guarding them. Of course, there's not a lot I can do about the squirrels, but I can grab the ripe pears first. Follow that pear!

For a couple of weeks now, I've been grabbing a pear here and there. The problem is that they don't seem to ripen very well off the tree. Still, the ones I've had have been delicious. And finally I had need of an easy pear recipe.

Finally, finally, yesterday I had a half dozen ripe, beautiful pears and I decided to bake something lovely. I went on the Net and on Squidoo, and on Epicurious to find a recipe. Think about pear gingerbread for a minute. That was almost the one. After reading several close fits for recipes, I used my blackberry cobbler recipe, with just a few changes.

Ok then.

Pears are good food!

My First Pear Cobbler
My First Pear Cobbler
Cook time: 1 hour 30 min
Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
Yields: 6 servings


  • 1/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 cups sliced pears
  • 1/2 cup loosely packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup cold water


  1. Grease bottom of 10 inch cake pan. Place on cookie sheet, this is important, the cobbler will probably boil over a bit.
  2. Preheat oven to 350*.
  3. Blend butter with sugar, then with flour until crumbly. Stir in milk, it will be a thick dough. Spread on bottom of greased pan. This is the crust.
  4. Sprinkle the pears across the crust. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top of the pears. Slowly pour water on top.
  5. Bake at 350* 45 minutes to 1 hour. It will be brown and not jiggly.
  6. Try to let it cool off for a while. Test yourself, see how long you can wait.

      I would like to try this recipe, I also love pears; in fact I have a couple of good recipes for poached pairs on Squidoo. I will add this lens to mine as an alternative way of cooking these delicious fruits.

      This sounds yummy. I can't think of any baked goods I have ever had with pears in it.

      My husband and I also have a pear tree in the back yard. Ours produces a miniature pear so they are a little too tiny for baking but are delicious for eating right off the tree.
