Garden Preserved Pear Cobbler

Garden Preserved Pear Cobbler

I call this recipe "garden preserved" because I used some of my frozen pears (I will have to do a post on freezing pears for winter desserts at a later time).  However, this recipe is just as delicious if you use fresh pears.

Pear Bottom
6 cups sliced pears (I used frozen pears already peeled & sliced) (if using fresh - washed, peeled and cored)
2/3 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
juice from 1 lemon
1 teaspoon lemon zest
2 tablespoons quick (instant) tapioca

Prepare the pears as listed above.  Mix all ingredients together in a large saucepan/pot.  Bring to a boil over medium heat - stirring all the time (just bring to a boil & then turn off the heat/ or remove from heat).  Pour into an oven safe deep dish (spray or butter the dish first) and now make the biscuits below.
Cinnamon Biscuits
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup milk
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt (only if you are using unsalted butter)

Whip Cream for the top

Stir the flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking powder & salt in a mixing bowl using a wooden spoon until combined.  Cut the butter into this dry mixture (I use a pastry cutter but a large fork will work also).  Now stir in the milk.  With large spoons - drop about 8 spoonful scoops of dough on top of the hot pear mixture from the previous step - there should be enough dough for 8 biscuits (see picture above) (I made my biscuits larger & only had enough dough for 7 biscuits).  Bake in a preheated 400 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes or until desired color & doneness is achieved (see picture below).

Allow to cool or eat warm - Scoop 1 biscuit & 1 spoonful of pear filling per serving & top with whipped cream or Vanilla Ice Cream & ENJOY!!
