"I love this! Next time I will cut back the sugars back by at least half. The pears add more than enough sweetness. Wonderful warm with ice cream."

"It was good. Mine came out kind of runny and I'm not sure why. I would probably put more batter on it next time because there was more pear stuff and not much of the batter part which my kids love!"

"easy, delicious. I did not have crystallized ginger on hand, so used a little cinnamon. My husband came close to eating a 9x9 himself. Next time I will make a little larger recipe with the pears. Will definitely make again. Made it with apples but my family did not like it as well. Thank you for this recipe."

"I had ginger spiced pears left over from when I canned yesteday and used them in this recipe this morning. I did not have lime so subbed lemon, I also reduced the sugar as my pear mixture was already cooked in light came out excellent! I served it warm with sour cream. I will keep this recipe, it is a perfect cobbler for my canned pears.

Great recipe...and very easy."
