Easy Fresh Pear Cobbler
As soon as Fall starts, I highly recommend making this pear cobbler recipe for dessert. It has a bottom layer of sweet, juicy, fresh pears smothered with an amazing tender biscuit topping! A fantastic fall dessert I'm sure you'll want to repeat often during the season.
Cobblers are one of the easiest desserts ever.
The day I made one for the first time (it was this peach cobbler, and it happened a million years ago), I was 15 and decided on the spot that it was one of my favorite desserts.
Many decades later, I still love it and falls under the category of dessert savior or rescuer recipe, the type that saves the meal because it comes together quickly, is a total crowd-pleaser, travels well if needed, and can be made year-round.
A savior for last-minute dessert needs.
