Warm Pear Cobbler
3 medium, peeled and sliced
Packed brown sugar
Fresh lemon juice
Whole-grain wheat flour
Unpacked brown sugar
Powdered sugar (icing sugar)
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
- Combine pears, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, 2 teaspoons of flour, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat pears and pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
- In a medium-size bowl, combine the remaining flours, remaining brown sugar and baking powder; cut in margarine with a pastry blender, or quickly with your fingertips, until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add buttermilk and toss with a fork until flour mixture is moist.
- Drop four heaping tablespoons of dough onto pear mixture. Bake until crust is lightly browned and fruit is bubbly, about 40 to 45 minutes. Allow to cool slightly, dust with powdered sugar and cut into 6 pieces.
