What About a Pears, Ginger and Lemon Zest Cobbler?

 17.5.11

I am enjoying a wonderful time in Colorado Springs with my Beloved and one of our daughters, who turned 16 years old last week. I am grateful to the Lord, for providing this beautiful time for us to share laughters, hugs and chocolates!

So, I thought, that since I am not having lots of time to blog, this would be the perfect time to share with you all a recipe that I just love! (reposting from my former blog).

Enjoy!

*****************************

I want to share with you this great recipe; I got inspired in a red big book that my dear friend, Jen, gave me a few years ago, however, I made several changes, because I never use solid vegetable shortening and I love cranberries and cheese!

I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do.




Pear, Ginger and Lemon Zest Cobbler.

What You Need:

10 ripe pears. Do not peel them, just core them and cut them into thick cubes.
2  tsp grated fresh ginger...my favorite!
1/2 c. plus 3 tsp of sugar
1 tbsp.  fresh lemon juice...I actually plucked a lemon from our beautiful tree for its juice.
Finely grated zest of 1/2 lemon
1/2 cup  dried cranberries
2 cups of unbleached all-purpose flour
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1/2 cup of butter
1 egg
1/3 cup milk
Cheese, any kind of Manchego or Gruyère; several thick slides.




How to do it:

1.  As always, pre-heat the oven to 425º F (220ºC). Butter a large casserole or 2 soufflé dish.

2. In a bowl, combine the pears, ginger, 1/2 cup of sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest, and dried cranberries.  Enjoy the aroma as you spoon into the dish.

3. In another bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder,  1 tbsp of sugar, and butter. Work these ingredients with your fingertips, (this is a great time to call in for little hands' help!)  until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

4. In a very small bowl beat the egg lightly and milk; stir into the other mixture. Knead, and knead, you might need to add a little bit more flour just to form a soft and nice dough. Not sticky, please.

5. Break off portions of the dough (as if you were to make cookies) and place them on top of the fruit. cover all the fruit and then sprinkle the rest of the sugar over the dough. Can you imagine it now? Yummy!

6. Bake until well browned, 35- 40 mins.

7. Serve immediately along with 3 or 4 slices of your favorite cheese.



Forgot to mention that this cobbler goes great with a French press of strong coffee.

Enjoy with  your family and good friends.

Every good gift comes from above, from our Heavenly Father.

If I am happy it is because of God! God, in His sovereign grace, has called me out of darkness into His Admirable light. He has opened my eyes and has shown me the way to Eternal Life. He has set my feet on a journey, and now I am walking Daily on My Way to Heaven. I did not find Jesus, He found me. I did not seek Him, yet He called me. I did not love Him, yet He loved me. I deserved death and He gave me Life. This is the place where I keep a journal of my life under His sun and by His grace!

Borrowed Words

"It becomes us to spend this life only as a journey toward heaven... to which we should subordinate all other concerns of life. Why should we labor for or set our hearts on anything else, but that which is our proper end and true happiness?"

Jonathan Edwards

"I am still pondering God's greatness in His creation. I have so many questions that I would like to ask the Lord about the universe, creation, the fall of man... But when I'm in heaven, I wonder if I will even remember them. At that time, being in the presence of God will be enough. I'm thankful that I can look forward to that day."

-Persis

“Heaven is not here, it’s There. If we were given all we wanted here, our hearts would settle for this world rather than the next. God is forever luring us up and away from this one, wooing us to Himself and His still invisible Kingdom, where we will certainly find what we so keenly long for.”

- Elisabeth Elliot, Keep a Quiet Heart
