Getting skin off poblanos was the hardest part of this recipe! These are the changes I made and it was delish!! I chopped whole onion, sautéed with butter then added flour. I used 2 cans of chicken breast (this was all I had). I added cayenne pepper at the end along with spices called for. Instead of pepper jack, I used 8oz of velveeta and about a cup of sharp cheddar. Really good soup!! Read More

It was nice that it’s so easy to make and the pear mixture was great. But the topping had so much sugar in it that it wasn’t even edible. I had to restart and cut the sugar in half to make it edible at all. And I was disappointed when I found out this was a crisp, not a cobbler. Read More

This was great!! I made this with pears and apples - added a little more cinnamon, and I sprinkled coconut and almond pieces on the top - wonderful! Very easy recipe with a great result. I served it with runny custard sauce, whipped cream and raspberries on top. It became a special dessert with special friends over. Read More

Oh my gosh this is so delicious!!! I used some pears that we received in a gift basket that were perfectly ripe. My husband loved it and asked if I would make it for Christmas. Next time I will definitely cut back on the sugar. The pears are so sweet anyway so I'll cut back on both the maple syrup and the brown sugar in the topping. It was amazing though. We topped it off with some french vanilla ice cream. I can't wait to make it again. Read More

I have a pear tree that produces hundreds of pears every year. I have always been at a loss on what I could do with all of them. This recipe is awesome! I make about a dozen cobblers with every harvest (in addition to pear sauce and giving some away). Everyone compliments the recipe when I make it and have asked for the recipe. I have even made it with pears that I have peeled and sliced and frozen in a ziploc and then defrosted. This looks really good in a cast iron pan ;) Read More

This was delicious! Next time I will definitely use less maple syrup to cut some of the sweetness. Otherwise it is a keeper. I used a combination of apples and pears. I agree it is more of a crisp than a cobbler. Read More

This was very good - I cannot have wheat so I added some finely chopped pecans and ground flaxseed meal to the topping recipe as a sub for the wheat. I did not use as much butter in the topping and I used mostly Truvia w/ about a tablespoon of brown sugar as I am trying to limit sugars as well. Thanks for posting. And for those purists - technically I think this would be considered a "crisp" not a "cobbler" but it's worth making what ever you call it.:) Read More
