This warm wintry Pear Cobbler Recipe has a gingerbread biscuit topping that will make your home smell like the holidays!
It was staring at me from the front of the cover of a recent issue of Bon Appetit. A spiced pear upside down cake. It looked lovely and so seasonally appropriate but I wasn?t sure if I really wanted to eat an entire cake all by myself. What I can eat all by myself (with a little help with my partner) is a cobbler though! You know how much I love my cobblers. It?s mostly fruit, with biscuits on top. And so I decided to take that gingerbread and pear cake and rework it into a Pear Cobbler Recipe with Gingerbread Biscuits. I have no regrets. (Jump directly to the recipe.)
Winter is finally here in San Francisco. The past couple of years have been warm winters here in San Francisco with our crazy drought and I?ve obviously grown very soft. Just a few weeks ago we were in Chicago and though the temperature was a balmy mid-50s, I was bundled up with my warm down jacket. Back here in SF, the temperature has dropped to about the same temperature but somehow it feels colder. Perhaps it?s the expectation of Midwest winter vs California winter or maybe it?s because I live here and it?s not a temporary mindset of ?oh, it?s only for a few days.? Either way I?m cranking up the heat in the apartment and pulled down my heavy winter sweaters from storage to wear around the house.
