Using up Fruit

I had about 6 or 7 pears that were about to have to be thrown out. I found the recipe below. It is cooking now. I hope it turns out good.

Easy Pear Cobbler

An easy pear cobbler recipe with butter and cake-like batter, along with fresh pears.

2 to 2 1/2 cups sliced fresh pears
2 cups sugar, divided
4 ounces butter
3/4 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup milk
1 egg

Preparation:Mix pears with 1 cup sugar and let stand. Put butter in 2-quart casserole and place in 325° oven until melted. Combine all dry ingredients, including the remaining 1 cup of sugar. Mix well. Whisk together the milk and egg; slowly combine with dry ingredients to make a batter. Pour over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon pears over the batter. Do not stir. Bake at 325° for 50 to 60 minutes, or until nicely browned and pears are tender.Serve hot or cold with ice cream or whipped cream.
