Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 degree 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.
