Thank you so much for this recipe. All of the cobblers I have made in the past have been a bit more entailed and alot more time consuming. This one is so easy and just as good if not better than the others I've made!! I expect it to work with other fruits as well. Thanks again!!

This recipe was very easy to follow and make. My family really enjoyed this as a surprise dessert. I will make this recipe again for my co-workers, because I am sure they will enjoy eating this delicious dessert just as my family did.

Made this recipe again, less butter definitely improved the balance of the dish (we used about 1 1/2 ounces of butter). Also leaving the pears & sugar to stand longer was good (about 1 hour) & didn't add the excess sugar this time.
