 This cobbler from Gina Neely is a real winner. My family loves it. If you don't have self-rising flour for the topping, you need to add 1/2 teaspoon baking powder and a pinch of salt.

 Using this recipe was the first time I've ever put pears in a cobbler. Could you share your recipe?

 I don't have it, my friend makes it, it involves cake mix though, lol.

I have a recipe that uses cake mix and canned pears, but it's called a dump cake. Wonder if it's similar?

I have a recipe (from Produce Box) called End of Summer Peach Apple Cobbler, but I can imagine pears can be substituted for peaches.  I'll share it in the recipe section :-)
