| A Dessert for the Holidays
I came across this recipe in a book titled The Empty Nest Cookbook written by a fellow writer. She has a whole slew of recipes in the book including how to cook the perfect turkey.
And just in time for the holidays! This book has a slew of wonderful recipes. There's a great section on how to cook that perfect turkey. Joy Smith is a member of my CTRWA Chapter who has written this cookbook that gives not only delicious yummy recipes but also menus and a bit of revelations. You can read more about Joy and her books at her website titled Joy Smith's Blog! And you can read all about her latest adventure on the open seas! Just reading through this episode I got a little seasick myself.
Here's one recipe from the book I don't think Joy will mind if I share. I think it's perfect for the upcoming holiday season.
BLUEBERRY PEAR COBBLER
(Who doesn't like a well prepared cobbler! I'm making it and bringing it to my son's on Thanksgiving Day! )
(Try this no-batter coffee cake when time is short.)
4 pounds ripe pears, peeled, cored and sliced.
2 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar 2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 package regular-sized refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
4 tablespoons melted butter or margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
Preheat over to 350 degrees.
Butter a 9x13x2 inch baking pan. In a mixing bowl combine the pears, lemon juice, sugar, blueberries, and cornstarch. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan. Open the package of biscuits and separate them. Dip each biscuit top first in the melted butter and then in the sugar. Arrange them on top of the fruit in a single layer. Bake the cobbler in a 350 degree oven for about 50 minutes, until fruit bubbles and is tender and the biscuits are golden brown. Serve with vanilla ice cream!
I can't wait to try this recipe!
