Looking for a fall cobbler recipe? This Cranberry and Pear Cobbler is the perfect choice!

This post is written in partnership with Market Street. All recipes, stories and opinions are my own.

Cranberries and pears are in abundance this time of year and I thought they’d be a great pairing in a fall cobbler. The tart cranberries, sweet pears and drop biscuits marry together in this super yummy fall dessert.

Filling Ingredients:
2 bags of fresh cranberries, rinsed
4 pears, cored and sliced
2 cups sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice blend
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3/4 cup orange juice

Biscuit Ingredients:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 sticks chilled unsalted butter, cut into pieces
1 tablespoon cinnamon, for dusting

Directions:
1. Preheat oven 350 degrees.
2. Cook 1 bag of the cranberries, pears, the sugar, the spices, and the orange juice over medium heat until the berries have all popped.
3. While the filling is cooking, make the dough.
4. Whisk flour, baking powder, salt, and 3/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl.
5. Rub in butter with your fingers until a coarse meal forms.
6. Gradually mix in 1/3 cup hot water until a soft wet dough forms (some lumps are okay).
7. Pour filling into 9×12 baking dish.
8. Stir in the other bag of cranberries into the cooked filling.
9. Drop clumps of dough over filling. Be careful with how big you make these clumps. You want them to cook all the way through.
10. Dust remaining sugar and cinnamon over biscuits and filling.
11. Cook for 40-45 minutes (or until biscuits are cooked through and slightly browned on top).

Serve with ice cream if you’d like!

I cooked this dessert in my Lodge Baking Dish (it’s actually called a Roaster). I am ABSOLUTELY loving my Lodge bakeware. I’ve been a huge fan of Lodge Cast Iron skillets since I started cooking. There’s nothing like a good seasoned cast iron skillet. I was thrilled to learn they had a Cookware & Bakeware line as well. If you are in the Dallas area, go shopping at Market Street. They’ve got the Lodge Cookware & Bakeware promotion going on right now (through January 6th)! For every $10 you spend buying groceries (we all need groceries!), you earn 1 e-sticker. You still have plenty of time to earn stickers towards all the amazing Lodge products!!

DIY Holiday Potpourri

Love the Smell of Christmas? Then this DIY Holiday Potpourri is just for you! Make your home smell like Christmas!

One reason that I love Christmas is that there is an entire season devoted to it. You don’t celebrate the 4th of July or Valentines Day for an entire month like Christmas. I am already planning out holiday parties and coming up with ideas for new decorations. I do wait until after Thanksgiving for the decorations to emerge; however, there are a few aspects of Christmas that I start early.

Even though I live in Seattle, the air in my house is very dry during the winter. I like to simmer scented water on the stove during the winter to add some much needed humidity to the air and also fill the air with a lovely scent.

The Delicious Smells of Christmas

The items in the simmer mixture can vary based upon personal preference; below is my “Christmas mixture” aka my Holiday Potpourri.

ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 2 Slices Orange
  • 2 Slices Lemon
  • 1/2 cup Cranberries
  • 1 T Whole Cloves
  • 4 Cinnamon Sticks
  • Water to fill Sauce Pan

Place all the ingredients in a medium size sauce pan and cook on as low as possible on your stove top. It is very important to check the water level frequently and do not leave this unattended. I have forgotten about it before on the stove and came back to the kitchen with some scorched ingredients in the pot.

One of my favorite times to simmer this mixture is on days when I work from home. I work from the kitchen table on these days so I can keep an eye on it and make sure that the water level isn’t too low. Sometimes I will put it on the stove during the weekends as well if I am working in the kitchen and know that I can check on it.

The cranberries will pop as they cook, and I find that their scent comes through much more once this happens. This Holiday Potpourri recipe is easy to adapt and add particular scents as it goes.

Do you ever simmer spices on the stove during the year? What are your favorite combinations? I think this one truly smells like Christmas!!
