    Excellent! A neighbor had a bunch of extra pears and we were trying to figure out to do with them. We found this recipe and were so happy with the way it turned out. Easy!

    This was a super simple recipe! I just used canned pears *gasp*, which made for quick prep time! I still used a whole, yes.. a whole stick of butter, and slightly heaped one of the 3/4c of flour measurements. In addition to the 1/2c of sugar mixed with the pears I added a dash or two of cinnamon. Finally, after I spooned the pears on top of the batter I sprinkled some oats for good measure! I am going back for seconds (as I put my bowl down to write this review!), and will totally make this again in the future! ^^ **I should also note that I used a 2.5 quart casserole dish. I believe that helped spread and evenly cook the batter, resulting in a fully fluffed and cooked cobbler!

    I don't understand the recipe. I was skeptical but since no other reviewers mentioned a problem I made it as directed. I ended up with pears sitting atop a mushy batter. I had hoped that perhaps it was to rise to the top but it did not. I was very disappointed. Taste was ok. I will try it once more with putting batter on top of fruit, finger's crossed.

    Definitely half the butter, I used 4 tablespoons. Soak pears for 1 hour. Use 1/4 cup of sugar in with dry ingredients instead of 1/2 cup. Delicious!

The little cutie here is Martha, the sweet lady I was blessed to have worked with for two years. Martha passed away on 12/3/08. Martha and I would ride endlessly during the holidays, and she would sing carols and laugh and just enjoy it so much. I know this holiday season, she will be with her brother, son and mother and finally be "home". Martha, I still love you more. ******* I'm a simple girl, born of good stock. I'm the mamma of two spoiled tuxedo cats: Beauregard and Patches (the one who's been drinking eggnog). They love cuddling together, and this picture is taken on my hall steps. I'm a firm believer in LOA. I need to get more dedicated to daily practice. Below is a film that explains it, and is wonderful. I highly recommend it. ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* This is Beau enjoying his computer. He's quite good at deleting messages, making the desktop disappear (as is his brother). Their path to the window is over my keyboard. <IMG SRC=""> This is Patches, planning his strategy to keep me awake, but cuddling his sock baby and trying to be cute to throw me off. <IMG SRC=""> Beau works a long week. He's relaxing finally, after a beer. <IMG SRC="">mnhj BTW, "mnhj" means "I just walked across our keyboard once again and left you a present." ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~ I'm trying to figure out my new rating system. As of 10/1/06, this is how I'll rate recipes. I will be changing some previous reviews. 5*~~Outstanding recipe--the best of the best here. 4*~~Something I find delicious; will make often; would serve to guests. 3*~~Something I might fix again; enjoyed; needed something added before I try again 2*~~Something I could finish, but would never try again, regardless of additions or subtractions 1*~~Could not finish it; would not even make possums suffer with this (I haven't found many of these--only one of my own that I grabbed from the internet!!) <img src="" alt="Image hosted by"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"> <img src="">
