Ginger-Pear Cobbler

Yield Makes 10 servings

Ingredients

  • 12 large firm Bosc pears, peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
  • 1 (15-ounce) package refrigerated piecrusts
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon water

How to Make It

  1. Toss sliced pears with brown sugar and flour.

  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat; add pear mixture, and cook, stirring often, 10 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat, and stir in pecans, ginger, and lemon rind.

  3. Spoon mixture into a lightly greased 2-quart baking dish.

  4. Roll piecrusts to press out fold lines; cut into 1/2-inch strips. Arrange strips in a lattice design over filling. Reroll remaining strips and scraps. Cut leaf shapes from piecrust using a small 1-inch leaf-shaped cookie cutter. Use a paring knife to gently score designs in leaves, if desired. Arrange leaf shapes around inner edge of the baking dish, forming a decorative border over ends of lattice.

  5. Whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water; brush over piecrust.

  6. Bake at 425° for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
