This delicious Pear Cobbler is made with canned pears and it’s AMAZING!
You don’t have to wait for pear season or pay high prices for pears out of season to make this delicious Pear Cobbler recipe. The beauty of the recipe is that it uses canned pears.
You can bypass the prep work of getting the pears peeled and cored by just opening up a couple cans of pear halves. The recipe is just as delicious as Pear Cobbler made with fresh pears. Top the cobbler with vanilla ice cream or a little cream and Enjoy!

I’m so happy everyone loved it Gloria, thank you for coming back and letting me know you made it for 20 people. It’s nice to know it works well being doubled or tripled.
I made this and it was oh so good. I added pecans to topping.
Wonderful Angela! And how perfect is it that you can make it anytime of the year with canned pears. Don’t you just love that!
I made it and it was simply delicious ! When I was making the filling I was not sure how it would cover all the pears or if it would even be of pourable consistency so I added a bit of water. When you do the sugar for your filling does it usually cover all the pears ?
The other thing I tweaked was that I had some strawberries and I added them.
Everyone loved it rap the topping ! 5 stars! Thanks for this recipe
Good morning Kanchan! When we make cobblers the dough isn’t suppose to cover the fruit completely Honey. It’s more like scoops of dough instead of covering the fruit completely in dough. The reason for that is covering the fruit completely in dough can cause the dough to steam when it bakes which would make it wet underneath where it’s close to the fruit and could make the dough soggy close to the fruit. But it sounds like what you did (adding a little water) was good for you and your family because they loved it! You can’t mess with what they love. The addition of strawberries with the pears sounds sooooo good! Thank you for taking the time to come back and comment Kanchan, I appreciate you!
My problem is I have diabetes and not supposed to ha sugar. I have to use Splenda if it can be done
Have not made this yet but it’s on my Christmas to do list. My only change to it would be in place of cinnamon would be to use cardamom instead. I’ve used it before with pears and it’s out of this world and doesn’t make the pears taste like apples. that’s just my opinion.
great the best
