Blueberry Pear Cobbler

From Hot Springs, Arkansas, Susan Pumphrey shares her mother's comforting cobbler. "Mom used her home-canned pears in this warm dessert, but the store-bought variety works just as well," Susan notes. "People are amazed something that comes together in a cinch tastes this wonderful."

    This was a wonderful, cheap and quick dessert! I used strawberry muffin mix and canned peaches. I also mixed the muffin mix, peaches and juice together and poured into a greased dish. Omitted the butter. Worked just fine. Next time I plan on using only one can of peaches and maybe adding just a touch of cinnamon.

    This was a good quick idea. I had to add a little more liquid so I used the reserved pear juice. We like our cobbler juicy and gooey. I also freeze blueberries every season so I added a cup of them. Sprinkled them right on the pears. Pretty as well as yummy. Had to add a dollop of fat free whip cream on top!

    I used frozen blueberries and frozen pears. After they defrosted I added the butter. I used a cinnamon coffee cake mix. Results were great. Thanks for this easy idea and yummy dessert.

    Substitute Betty Crocker's Blueberry Muffin mix, reserve another 1/4-1/2 cup juice, and rinse blueberries. Add the extra reserve and scatter the blueberries before adding the mix and butter.
