  • 8 Bosc pears, peeled, halved and cored
  • 2 cups pear nectar
  • 12 cups sugar, divided
  • 2 cups biscuit mix
  • 1 stick + 2 tablespoons butter, divided: melt 1 stick, leave additional 2 tablespoons unmelted
  • 1 1/2 cups half-and-half
  • 3 lbs plus 2 additional pears pears, chop 2, reserve separately, then chop 3 lbs, put in separate bowl
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple with syrup
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • cinnamon sugar, for sprinkling
  • vanilla ice cream, for serving


Preheat the grill to medium-high heat and preheat the oven to 350°.


In a large resealable plastic bag, add the Bosc pears and pear nectar. Seal the bag, and marinate for 1 hour. Remove the pears from the marinade, reserving the marinade. Grill the pears for 5 minutes per side.


Put the melted butter in a 13 by 9-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the biscuit mix, 2 cups sugar and half-and-half. Pour the batter into baking dish over the butter. Arrange the pears on top. Do not stir the pears. Pour the reserved marinade over the top of the pears. Bake until lightly browned, about 45 to 55 minutes. Remove from the oven and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and serve warm with ice cream and Pear Topping, if desired.


Pear Topping:


In a medium skillet, over low heat, add the 2 tablespoons butter and brown sugar. Stir to combine, then add the 2 diced pears and honey. Sautée quickly until warm. Serve over the cobbler.


Pear Honey:


Mix all ingredients (pineapple, 3 lbs chopped pears, lemon juice and 10 cups sugar) in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook until the pears are tender and the mixture thickens, approximately 30 minutes. Pour into sterilized jars and seal while hot.


Yield: 12 to 16 half-pint jars
