Pear Cobbler

DD had to do a report for food nutrition class picking a fruit or vegetable and then prepare a dish for the class. She chose the pear, and then poured over recipes online looking for the perfect one. Something that was going to be tasty , but economical to make. She finally selected one and chose a pear cobbler. She started preparing it last night and boy did the house smell great. The boys walked in from Christmas play practice and it immediately got their attention.

Today was the moment of truth. How would her classmates receive this culinary dish? It was very well received. Everyone was saying how good it was. She picked up the pan before the last period and took it to the class with her. One of the kids in the class asked for a sample and took a bite as the teacher began talking. He yelled out "Oh Mi Gosh! this is the best stuff ever!"

Well, there wasn't much left in the pan, not even a proper bite, so I have to say it is highly reccomended by the teenage demographic. Here is the recipe and the link to the site she found it on.

Easy Pear Cobbler
1 box yellow cake mix,
1 stick butter melted
1 large can sliced pears in heavy syrup
ground ginger or nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Pour pears with syrup into an oblong baking pan. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over pears. Drizzle melted butter over cake mix. Lightly sprinkle with ginger. Bake for 35 minutes or until bubbly. Serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.

I reccommended she use ginger, and she chose cool whip to top it with, YUM! Not bad. Will deffinately make an appearance again. It is really easy to make and pretty good as well. ( and oh yeah - the crust that forms on the side of the pan is some of the best part, so dont skip it!)
