Grandma’s Pear Cobbler.

So, we had some family visit with us last night since they had a doctor’s appointment in the area. I’ve been looking for a reason to use the last jar of pears that my Grandma sent me. Since this is my cousin on the same side, I decided this was a good reason. This is a VERY simple recipe for Pear Cobbler. You can switch out the pears for any other type of fruit and it will be equally yummy. Only five ingredients. READY??


You’ll notice the star of this show is the big jar of pears in the middle. 🙂


2 cups of sugar

2 cups of self rising flour

1 stick of butter

2 cups of milk

approximately 46 oz of canned pears

As simple as the list of ingredients is, the actual recipe is just as simple.

IMG_7820Grease a 9 x 13 pan. I used Pam. Melt your stick of butter. This is the glorious stick before the melting.

IMG_7821And, the after shot. 🙂 I simply popped it in my microwave and cooked it for 1 minute at 50% power.

IMG_7822Then, I measured my sugar and poured into a large mixing bowl.

IMG_7827I dumped the self rising flour into the bowl with the sugar.

IMG_7832Pour the milk in also.


I add a couple of optional ingredients at this point. I was feeling frisky so I added 1 tsp of Vanilla Extract and 1/2 tsp of Cinnamon. Totally up to you according to how frisky you feel.


Anyway, back to the recipe. Add your stick of melted butter.


Add your jar of pears. Please note the juice pouring out first. This is liquid crack. Basically, this is 199% sugar. Yes, this is going to be super yummy.

Now, here’s the hard part. You ready? Mix it all together. That’s it.

IMG_7850When it is all mixed together, it’ll look something like this:

IMG_7851Go ahead and dump all that deliciousness into your 9×13 pan and place it in your oven. Cook until done at 350 degrees. You’ll know it is done when it is golden brown on the top.

IMG_7852Once it has cooled a tad, cut a big ole slab and lay a scoop of vanilla ice cream (or froyo, in our case) beside it. You know, pear cobbler gets lonely if left on a plate alone. And, that’s just wrong.

IMG_7862This recipe is great with any fruit. I’m actually hoping to try it with blueberries soon. YUMMMMMMMMM.
