Pear Custard Cobbler

Recipe by litldarlin

This deep-dish cobbler has a custard filling and is made with canned pears. I use the pears in light syrup. You can also substitute Splenda for the sugar.

This was a different and delicious cobbler which my family really enjoyed with vanilla ice cream. This would be perfect in the winter when the best fresh fruit isn't available. I think next time I would add a little of the syrup from the canned pears to the mix for a juicier result. A little cinnamon would be a great optional addition. Thank you for a wonderful and easy recipe.
