This recipe came from   Pears can easily be my favorite fruit, especially in the fall when pears are so plentiful in our area.   They are also available in the supermarkets.   This pear cobbler can be served anytime – at breakfast or for a dessert.   Adding whipped cream or ice cream on top of the cobbler makes this breakfast fruit delectable.
