Ultimate Pear Cobbler Recipe

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.
Pears are good food!
- 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
- Grease bottom of 10 inch cake pan. Place on cookie sheet, this is important, the cobbler will probably boil over a bit.
- Preheat oven to 350*.
- 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.
- Sprinkle the pears across the crust. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top of the pears. Slowly pour water on top.
- Bake at 350* 45 minutes to 1 hour. It will be brown and not jiggly.
- Try to let it cool off for a while. Test yourself, see how long you can wait.

Pears are good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacking too. But when you cook with them, pears are sublime.
