Ready In:




  • Stir the milk with the vinegar and let stand for 10 minutes.
  • Stir in the vanilla.
  • Meanwhile, in a bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Using a pastry blender, cut in the butter just until it forms coarse crumbs.
  • Drizzle the milk mixture over top, stirring with a fork until a sticky dough forms.
  • Set aside for the topping.
  • In a separate bowl, stir the brown sugar with the cornstarch.
  • Add the pears and raspberries and gently toss to combine.
  • Divide among eight 3/4-cup ovenproof coffee or custard cups.
  • Place on a rimmed baking sheet.
  • Drop the topping by spoonfuls over the fruit, leaving some visible.
  • Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
  • Bake in the centre of a 375 degree F oven until the filling is bubbling and the topping is golden and not doughy underneath when lifted with a spoon, about 30 minutes.
  • Let cool on a rack for 10 minutes.
  • Serve warm.
  • Note: The cobbler can also be baked in a 7" x 11" baking dish. Put in all the filling and top with 8 dollops of topping. Bake as directed.

  1. This was VERY tasty and made a great presentation.


<p>I live with my husband, four cats, and a sweet mutt named Jada in Scarborough, Ontario, where I work as an elementary school administrative assistant. I have a 31 year old daughter who lives with her boyfriend in nearby Don Mills, along with my sweet granddogs, Frankie and Turbo. I would have to say that my passion is animals, since I have so many of them! <br /><img src=http://images.quizilla.com/H/h0t5auce/1108834307_brown_answer.jpg alt= /> <br /><img src=http://www.recipezaar.com/members/home/532663/cookswithcattitude.JPG alt= /> <br /><img src=http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r271/copperhorse58/CalendarGirlsSwap2009.jpg alt= /> <br /><br />If I had a month off work to do what I please, I would first catch up on my sleep and then just have fun - see a few movies and maybe take a couple of short trips - something that wouldn't break the bank - lol!</p>
