  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons margarine or butter
  • 1 16-ounce package frozen unsweetened pitted tart red cherries
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 teaspoons cornstarch
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 medium pears (1 pound), peeled, cored and thinly sliced (3 cups)
  • 1 egg
  • ¼ cup fat-free milk
  • Fat-free frozen yogurt (optional)


  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. For biscuit topping, stir together flour, 2 tablespoons of the sugar, the baking powder, orange peel, and cinnamon in a bowl. Cut in margarine or butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Set aside.
  2. For filling, in a medium saucepan, combine frozen cherries and water, the remaining 2 tablespoons sugar, cornstarch, and cinnamon. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Stir in pear slices; heat through. Reduce heat; keep hot.
  3. In a bowl, stir together egg and milk; add to topping mixture, stirring just until moistened. Transfer hot filling to a 2-quart square baking dish. Immediately spoon topping mixture into small mounds over filling. Bake in a 400°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near center of a biscuit comes out clean. If desired, serve cobbler warm with frozen yogurt.
