I made this with strawberries and pears and it was a big success. It was easy to do and sweet enough to serve alone - we all loved it.

I was given 3 lovely red Bartlett pears and was looking for a fast easy recipe. This one fit the bill. I just happened to have a bag of frozen blackberries in the freezer. I have a sweet tooth so next time I will sprinkle 4 teaspoons of sugar on the fruit. The topping was just right. It was similar to a cobbler and was fast and easy. I did not top it with ice cream, but I am sure it would make a nice presentation in custard dishes for company.
