As the Fall seasoning is approaching, I am feeling like making more and more warm pear desserts. This warm pear cranberry cobbler is so juicy and so nutty and so tasty that it will feel like the most comforting thing in the world. I have always loved pear cobbler but with cranberries, they seem to get tastier.
Warm Pear Cranberry Cobbler Recipe
This warm Cranberry Pear cobbler served with a little ice cream and caramel on top tastes unbelievable YUM! There is a beautiful balance of sweet and sour. The pear gets beautifully baked and becomes mushy.
The cinnamon sugar oats streusel on top give a crumbly layer on pear cranberry filling. When you have both the crumble and pear together you get the bite from pear, the sweetness, and nuttiness from sugar and cinnamon.
And, finally, the caramel does a beautiful job of bringing all the flavors together. This feels like a well-rounded dish that deserves to be served for fall and winter evening get-togethers and other fall parties.
The thing that sticks with you is the beautiful balance of flavors. The pears make an excellent companion with cranberries. Both of them get together to create a mushy, sweet, and savory filling that is really tasty. And, the crumb topping makes it taste amazing. Basically, it provides a nutty and buttery texture to your pear cranberry filling and makes it taste amazingly good.
A Little Story
I have made this recipe with fresh pears. I really love the taste of fresh pears. And, while making cobbler or crisp I always prefer fresh pear. Pear has a distinct taste which I can say we all love. Considering the fact that you are here reading a recipe about a pear, I guess, you love pear too. I will be totally honest with you. Earlier I used to think, who adds pear to a dessert? I had never had a pear dessert in my entire life. But, surprisingly since the time, I started using pear I have started liking it. And, I loved them in today's recipe. They were that bite that my taste buds were looking for. They were that juicy filling that my taste buds were looking for.
Honestly, I had no plans of using cranberry. I was supposed to make a classic Pear cobbler. But, I always try to bring a little newness to my recipes. I always try to think of a combination. I somehow feel that pear would feel lonely. You can call me a hopeless romantic, but I do believe in couples. And, in this case, Pear and cranberry are a tasty couple.
The Pear Cranberry Filling
For this step cut out pears in chunks and mix them with light brown sugar, cranberries, flour, grated ginger, ground cinnamon, all-purpose flour, and lime juice. It is pretty easy. Just gather everything and mix well. Then take a spoon and taste it. Does it taste good? When I tasted mine, it tasted too sweet, so to balance it out I added some lime juice. Does your's taste good! Are you happy with the taste? If yes then set it aside and let's go and make the cobbler topping.
The Cobbler Topping
There are many ways to make the topping but I prefer it with oats. So for my topping, I use flour, Cinnamon, baking powder, oats, and lots of brown sugar. It is the brown sugar that makes it taste good.
And finally, just kiss it best of luck and pop it in the oven! It should be crispy golden brown on the top with the fruit filling bubbling inside.
