Pear Cobbler

I make this as a comfort dessert one evening when Allan was away on a conference for a week.  I didn’t plan to eat almost half of it in one day, but somehow it just disappeared.  I think that Bob must have had some.  I hope Bob had some…

It was really easy to put together, and when I added the batter to the melted butter I was curious as to how it would turn out.  It looked a bit strange, melted butter around the edges of the batter with the pear halves embedded in the batter.

This gives a sweet biscuit topping on the fruit, and the juice makes a little sauce with the pears and butter.  It is good with some ice cream or cream. A very simple, good weekday dessert.  Not one I would use for company though, with tinned pears!
