Pear Cobbler with Cranberry Streusel Recipe at
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter an 8 by 8-inch baking dish. Dust the dish with granulated sugar, tapping out any excess.

2. Peel the peers and cut them in half through the stem end. Use a melon baller to scoop out the cores. Put the pear halves in a large bowl, sprinkle with the vanilla, and toss. Then sprinkle over the brown sugar, flour, cinnamon, and nutmeg and toss so that the pears are really well coated with the flavorings. Set the pears in a single layer, cored side down, in the prepared baking dish.

3. Now make the topping. In the same bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, flour, and salt and mash it all together with your fingers. Toss in the cranberries. Crumble the topping mixture over the pears in the baking dish and bake until the topping is nice and crunchy and browned and the pears are very tender, 35 to 40 minutes. Serve with whipped cream.

Something Different
I got an email for this recipe and it sounded so good I went and bought the pears (had the cranberries). Cooked it according to the directions and smelled heavenly. But the pears even after cooking a little longer were still a bit hard (afraid to do longer because it was getting too dark on top). I think next time I'll chop them up and they will cook better. Also 4 pears were too much for a 8x8 pan and my pears weren't big. But it tastes good.
