Apple Pear Cobbler

"I created this recipe wanting a cobbler, yet only having canned ingredients on hand. I kind of surprised myself by how well it came out! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!"

    Bev,first I must say that my SO and I thought that this was very good.I followed the directions as written,but baking this in an 8x 8 inch pan I had to let it bake for about 15 more minutes. Even having to bake this for a little longer than stated ,it made a perfect ending to our Memorial Day Dinner.If I make this again,I will bake this in a 2 quart rectangle baking dish for the suggested baking time."Keep Smiling:)"

    Hands down the best cobbler I've ever made! I followed the recipe with 1 exception - running short of milk, I topped off the 3/4 cup with 1/4 cup cinnamon vanilla flavored liquid coffee creamer. I also used the optional cinnamon sprinkled on top. It was darned easy to put together and the smell as it baked was so mouth watering I had trouble concentrating on my dinner. ;-) Thanks for sharing this stellar recipe!

    Bev, I really appreciate your creativity and that your recipe did NOT call for a full stick of butter as so many do. I made your apple pie/pear cobbler and it was well received by the family. I baked mine in an 11 x 8 x 3 inch oval ceramic baking dish so there was plenty of room for it to rise. I also played with your recipe using 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk and 3/4 cup sugar. I used 2 cans sliced peaches and some crushed pineapple not used in another recipe. I drained and saved the juice from 1 can of peaches adding 3 Tbs peach schnapps to it before pouring it over the fruit in the casserole dish and baking. Really GOOD!! Thank you so much for an easy but delicious dessert.
