Blackberry Pear Cobbler with Almond Granola Topping


There’s nothing quite like a good cobbler. You can make them any season, using whatever fruits are readily available. I love mixing strawberries, blueberries and raspberries in the summertime. In our house, fall cobbler is almost always apples and whatever fruit I have on hand, and winter cobbler is pears. It only takes a few minutes to throw together yet always turns out something warm and comforting. And I’ve always loved the contrast of textures between the warm, soft fruit and crunchy topping.

Here’s a cobbler recipe using pears with blackberries and a crunchy almond granola topping. Serve with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream or freshly whipped cream!

    I’ve had a variety of cobblers in my time, but never really considered a mixture of fruits quite like blackberry and pear. Too add, I don’t always have the tendency to start salivating while reading the ingredients; but this is definitely one of those times! It is always great to stock up on new recipes as well, it certainly makes rainy days more interesting. All the better as I just recently moved into a new apartment, and I think a nice dessert like this could really hit the spot this evening when my girlfriend comes over. Nothing is more manly then salivating over a fresh pie! Now that I am particularly hungry, I am going to have to hop off the internet and start digging up the ingredients for this. Thanks a lot for this great recipe! I will let you know how it works out!

    Ulalume, thanks for the nice comment! You had me laughing at your "manly" comment. But I have to say, I do get a small thrill seeing hubs leaning over something I made and seeing him salivate ;-) It's a cooks thing, I guess! Hope you and your girlfriend enjoy it. Cheers!

    This is the type of dessert I love to learn how to make. Healthy, delicious looking, fresh, and not too sweet. As a diabetic, I need to watch my sugar intake but I still love something sweet that looks appealing. Kudos!

    Ohhh now this looks yummy! I'm not a big dessert person since I don't have much of a sweet tooth. I love something that is more on the healthy-side though, like this :).

    Mmm :). Pears never seemed like a good "dessert" or cobbler food to me until now. Thanks for sharing this! I'll be trying it some day real soon!

      This is delicious! It is chewy rather than crunchy, which I didn’t expect, but a pleasant surprise. All of the flavors come alive in every bite, I will make this again!

    I <3 TheWickedNoodle! I am looking for a cinnamon bun recipe similar to what my grandma used to make, but have had no luck so far. However, I did come across some other great recipes that I think will suffice just fine :).

    We’re just finishing up the last batch of granola I made. Been looking around for inspiration for a different flavoured granola. This one may just be the answer!
