Recipe: Easy Pear Cobbler

Did you get a box of ginormous pears this Christmas? Because I did. I like pears. The DH does not. So, in the hopes of not letting them rot and go to waste, I am trying to bake them into things. This is the first time I've made cobbler, I'm pretty sure. It was super easy.

Yes. That is a paper bowl. I'm tired of washing dishes today.
I used this recipe for inspiration. Here is what I did.

Ingredients:
Hugeee Pears

-1/2 cup Earth Balance Whipped Buttery Spread, melted
-1 Cup All Purpose Flour
-1 Cup Granulated Splenda, Divided
-1 Tbsp. Baking Powder
-Pinch of Salt
-1 Cup Light Silk Soy Milk
-~4 Cups Pears, Sliced
-1 Tbsp. Lime Juice (Or Lemon)
-Ground Cinnamon (Optional, but recommended)

Preparation:
-Preheat oven to 375*F
-Melt the Earth Balance (or butter) and pour into a 9x13 in. baking dish, covering the bottom
-Mix the flour, 1/2 cup Splenda, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl
-Add the soy milk to mixture and stir until everything is moist
-Pour batter over top of Earth balance layer; do not mix



-Bring 1/2 cup Splenda, Pears and lime juice to a boil in a large saucepan, stirring constantly



-Pour pear mixture over the top of batter; again, do not mix



-Sprinkle with Cinnamon
-Bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown
-Serve!




**This is a vegan recipe. If you don't have these ingredients, here are some other options:
-Replace Earth Balance with the same amount of butter or margarine
-Replace 1 cup Splenda with 2 cups sugar
-Replace Soy milk with the same amount of regular milk
