This pear cobbler is so easy, so delicious and is sure to impress your guests.
A few weekends ago I was craving something sweet, but the only sweet things I had in my house were two pears sitting in my fridge. I did some googling and discovered the following recipe. There's a good chance you'll have all the ingredients in your pantry as well.
Easy Pear Cobbler

2 cups fresh pears
2 cups sugar
4 ounces butter
3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
Mix pears with 1 cup sugar and let stand. Put butter in 2-quart casserole and place in 325-degree oven until melted. Combine all dry ingredients, including the remaining 1 cup of sugar. Mix well. Whisk together the milk and egg; slowly combine with dry ingredients to make a batter. Pour over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon pears over the batter. Do not stir. Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and pears are tender.
Because I didn't have anything in my house, I ate it plain and hot from the oven. I bet it would taste even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
