Pear Cobbler

By request, for Phil.

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 cup flour
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
1 T baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 cup buttermilk
4 cups fresh pear slices, (peel and core pear)
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 t vanilla
ground cinnamon to taste

Add butter to a 13x9" baking pan. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine flour, 3/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt; stirring in buttermilk, mixing til dry ingredients are just moistened. Pour batter over butter; do not stir.

Preheat oven to 375°.

In a medium saucepan, bring remaining 3/4 cup sugar, pear slices and lemon juice to a boil over high heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla.

Pour mixture over batter (do not stir). Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Bake 40-45 minutes or til bubbling and top is golden brown. Let rest about 10 minutes before serving.

I served the cobbler with fresh whipped cream. Delicious!


  1. Mmmm...Shan, where have you been? I'm just not getting around much at the other place. I can't get into it. I spend much more time over here in blogland.
