Cinnamon Pear Cobbler

Cinnamon Pear Cobbler: The Charm of Home
With fall comes ripe apples and pears.  I often find cobblers made with summer fruits and apples but, I don't see as many recipes for pears.  This recipe was perfect for this time of year with the ripe pears in the produce section just beckoning me to create something warm and delightful for a cozy fall night. 

Cinnamon Pear Cobbler: The Charm of Home
The cobbler was out of a fabulous new cook book, the Quick-Shop-&-Prep 5 Ingredient Baking by Jennifer McHenry.  I am spreading the word about this cookbook because it is one of those cookbooks I could cook my way all the way through!  I don't find many cookbooks like that.  Read my full review here. So, I am sharing another recipe out of it.

Cinnamon Pear Cobbler

5-6 medium pears, cored, peeled, and chopped (about 3 cups {450 g})
3/4 cup (150 g) firmly packed light brown sugar
2 tablespoons (15 g) unbleached all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons (28 g) unsalted butter, softened
2 teaspoons (5 g) ground cinnamon

1 cup (120 g) unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 cup (100 g) firmly packed light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder 
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (113 g) unsalted butter, cold, cut into small cubes
3 tablespoons (45 ml) milk
1/2 cup (12 g) pecans, chopped
1 tablespoon (12 g) turbinado sugar (optional)

Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C).

To make the filling:
Stir together the pears, brown sugar, flour, butter, and cinnamon in a skillet.  cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves and the mixture is bubbly.  Continue to cook for 5 minutes, or until thickened.  Transfer the mixture to a 1-quart (1-L) baking pan.  

To make the topping:
Combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.  Add the butter, and use a pastry blender or fork to mix until the largest pieces of butter are the size of small peas.  Add the milk and mix just until combined.  Stir in the pecans. 

Drop the topping by spoonfuls over the filling in the pan.  If desired, sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar.

Place the baking pan on a lined baking sheet to catch any spills.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, or until topping is brown and the filling is bubbly.  Allow to cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Makes: 6-8 servings
