Apple Pear Cobbler Recipe by Irvin Lin of Eat the Love.

“So you’re on dessert duty, I hope that’s OK.” AJ told me, as we were going over our holiday itinerary back in Indiana. This was not a surprise to me as I’m pretty much always on dessert duty where ever I go. It comes with the food blogging territory. Not that I mind it, as I do love to bake (as is evident by this blog). The problem was come off of my crazy insane baking run for my dessert party, I was at a bit of a loss on what to make. Of course, it doesn’t help that I’m baking in someone else’s kitchen, using their ingredients and equipment. Luckily AJ’s brother and sister-in-law have a well-stocked and well-equipped larder. Man, I wish I had a pro-range stove and oven like they do. A quick trip to Whole Foods and I found myself staring at a pile of apples and pears in my cart. The apple pear cobbler recipe practically made itself. (Jump directly to the recipe.)

AJ’s brother Jeff and his wife Cathy fed all of us well (including AJ’s niece Rachel who was also at dinner) with roasted pork and Brussels sprouts. It was good to eat some greens as I felt like I had been on an all-meat diet during our trip to the Midwest. Not something I normally complain about, but you know, everything in moderation. Of course this happens every year when I go back to Indiana, you’d think I’d remember that.

Whipping up a cobbler is pretty easy, and in the cold weather of the Midwest, it seemed appropriate. In fact, I realized the last time I made a cobbler was when I was in the Midwest over the summertime. Apparently cobbler and Midwest go hand-in-hand in my mind. Maybe it’s the comfort of the sweet drop biscuits over the fruit or ease of making it in someone else’s home that drives me to immediately go to cobbler-land. Or maybe it’s just because I know that pretty much any household will have all the ingredients available for a cobbler. Either way, my apple pear cobbler seemed to be the perfect way to end the meal with family.

I need to bake more with fruit in the winter and this is such an inspiration! Yum!

Apples and pears are such a great combination. I read years ago that slipping a pear or 2 in, makes a good apple pie great. Mixing up the varieties adds a whole new level. And love the fresh cranberries here!

Irvin, cobblers and the Midwest definitely go hand in hand, and in my mind, cobblers are also synonymous with the summertime when berries and stone fruits are at their peak. But, it makes perfect sense that they would also be warm and inviting baked with winter fruits. What better dessert to enjoy while trying to survive cold and snowy nights wherever you live.

I’d say cobbler is very comforting, and I wouldn’t mind seeing it on my dinner plate. This recipe looks wonderful. Pinned.
