1 1/2 cups half-and-half

1 (20-ounce) can crushed pineapple with syrup
8 cups (about 3 pounds) peeled, cored, and chopped pears
10 cups sugar

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

In a large resealable plastic bag, add the 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, 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 butter and sugar. Stir to combine, then add the pears and honey. Saute quickly until warm. Serve over the cobbler.

Pear Honey:

Mix all ingredients 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.

I saw this recipe by chance when i was listening to the food channel and heard Paula and her son doing a grilled pear dessert. I soon tuned in with pears being my Fav fruit desserts being the best course smile This american recipe was very simple to follow and the conversions of some of the ingredients easy to find online. I am very pleased to report that my cobbler has turned out amazing and will now be appearing in my book of Fav recipes!!! -Kathy

I love Miss Paula. And, my husband and I were invited to a cook out and I offered to bring a dessert! What a better way than a "grilled" dessert for a cook out! So, I headed to Paula Deen for help! And, I found the Grilled Pear Cobbler! I told our host that I'd bring a healthy dessert, and to me this one at least has fruit! wink So, it's heathy enough for me! haha! Looks fantastic...cannot wait to taste it!
