Take the chill out of a cold winter night with this delicious, homey pear cobbler. Give it a dusting of powdered sugar just before serving.


Cooking spray

4 spray(s)


3 medium, peeled and sliced

Packed brown sugar

2 Tbsp

All-purpose flour

2 tsp

Fresh lemon juice

2 tsp

Ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

All-purpose flour

¼ cup(s)

Whole-grain wheat flour

¼ cup(s)

1½ Tbsp

Baking powder

½ tsp

Unsalted butter

1 Tbsp

1% low fat buttermilk

½ cup(s)

Powdered sugar (confectioner's)

1 Tbsp


  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF. Coat an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine pears, 2 tbsp brown sugar, 2 tsp all-purpose flour, lemon juice and cinnamon in a large bowl; toss to coat pears and pour mixture into prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium-size bowl, combine the remaining flours, remaining brown sugar and baking powder; cut in the butter 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.
  4. Drop four heaping tbsp 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.
