Lucccccyyyyyy, I’m Hommmmmeeeeeeee! Cook Me Some Dinner!!

Oooo, Ricky, can we go to the club tonight!?

No Luccceeeee! You need to be cooking dinner for me!

Ohhhhhhh…. Rickkyyyyyyy! WAHHHHHHHHHH!!!

Ummmm…. yeah. That’s my way of saying I’m back! Did ya miss me!?  huh huh huh!? Was there an emptiness in your life the past 2.5 weeks while you waited for my return? Did you mourn and eat lots of Twinkies in my honor?

Well…. moving is done. We are settled with nary a box in sight. Well, one box but it’s my husbands and I’m not touching it… unless it sits there too long. Then I’ll hide it.

I had forgotten how much I hated moving. The only thing it is good for is that you have a clean house for a while. I think from now on we will just move every time the house gets dirty. Easier than cleaning.

Seriously though; moving sucks. By the time I finished culling things in the old house and packing up I was already exhausted. Then once we got everything here, all the unpacking and setting up pretty much fell to me since my husband had to work. Talk about tiring! A three bedroom house…. unpacked in like 3 days. Why you ask? Because I am extremely anal and couldn’t handle the idea of living in box city for longer than necessary. So I practically killed myself getting it done. I am one of those people who HAS to have it feeling like home. I need a magic wand or a potion to create “instant cozy”. If you see one on ebay, keep me in mind.

Then, as life is wont to do, it used it’s massive sense of humor to add Bronchitis to the settling in process. I’m still recovering from that and 99% of the time, tend to sound like Minnie Mouse after she has been sucking on a helium balloon. Kinda funny actually. Except when I try to sing. Then it’s just frightening. I think I have traumatized Joshie and all the cats.

Butttttt… I have FINALLY been able to start cooking again. Between setting up and illness, I didn’t cook a thing for the longest time. So all my grand plans of having a backlog of recipes and posts when I got  internet access back were ruined. But that’s ok. I’ll still be cooking for you. Have a new one for you right now as a matter of fact. πŸ™‚ I wanted a cobble the other day but didn’t have the things I needed to make a good home made one so I improvised. I guess it must have worked since my non sweets liking husband had two servings. Yay me!

This is supremely easy to throw together and a perfect Autumn cobbler. It is rich, decadent and smooth (starting to sound like I cloned George Clooney) with a crunchy biscuit topping that goes over the top by taking a dunk in butter and then a cinnamon sugar mix (omit the cinnamon on if you don’t like it {I see you Ann!} or can’t eat it.). Add in a shot (or so) of Butterscotch Schnapps and this is one tasty cobbler!! So get to cooking! Then get to eating. Then get to telling me how yummy it was!

 Apple, Pear & Butterscotch Cobbler

  1. 1 20 ounce can apple pie filling
  2. 2 15 ounce cans pears in juice, drained (reserve juice from one can)
  3. 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  4. 1/3 cup sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  6. 1 cup butterscotch chips
  7. 1/3 cup butterscotch schnapps
  8. 1 7.5 ounce ten count can buttermilk biscuits
  9. 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  10. 1/3 cup sugar
  11. 2 teaspoons cinnamon (or more if desired. Can also be omitted)
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly butter a 13 x 9 baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine the cornstarch, 1/3 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Whisk in the reserved juice from the can of pears.
  • In a large bowl, combine the apple pie filling and pears. Mix in the cornstarch mixture.
  • Pour in the butterscotch chips and the schnapps. Combine well then spoon into the buttered baking dish.
  • In a small bowl, combine the last 1/3 cup sugar and the 2 teaspoons cinnamon.
  • Open biscuit can. Dip each biscuit in the melted butter, then in the cinnamon/sugar mix. Lay on top of fruit in baking dish.
  • Bake at 350 until the biscuits are golden brown and the fruit is bubbly and thickened, about 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Serve with ice cream or whipped cream. Say yum many many times.

  1. I was actually wondering about you yesterday! I made your cinnamon blondie recipe – they were great by the way! Welcome back!!
    We are moving, not looking forward to it. Hubby leaves this weekend to head out there. I am staying behind to try to sell our house while he finds us a place. Not looking forward to all the work for a cross country move!

    • Hey Erin! Glad you liked the blondies!

      So you’re moving too huh? ACK! I feel for you. It was a bi*** and a half and it wasn’t even cross country.

  2. My last move was almost the death of me… The stress of feeding hundreds of people I can cope with but my last move was a nightmare.. Of course there ha to be near monsoon conditions on the day.
    That being said butterscotch schnapps is so good alone so in a cobbler

    • that’s about how I’ve felt about this one Mike. Cooking for the mongrel hordes I can do easily, but this brought me to my knees… in more ways than one.

      And yep; butterscotch schnapps rocks!

  3. I am so glad to see that you are back, believe it or not this community did miss you! Hope you are over the bronchitis thing.
    Anyhow bronchitis or not you still have your tastebuds I see-this is a delicious dessert! I see you “Janetized” it with that shot of schnapps-well done!

    • Thanks Tina. hearing that means a lot actually.

      And yep… have to totally mess with any normal food idea out there hehe

      Thanks Nelly!!

  4. Yay!! You’re back!! Glad to hear everything went well with your move! I hate moving too, I can’t stand unpacking!! like you, I can’t be comfortable until it’s all unpacked and I can get cozy on the couch with some wine! This cobbler looks so delicious!!

    • Thanks Susan! let me know what you think if you try it.

      Thanks Stephanie! And now you have me wanting to be cozy on the couch with some wine darn it πŸ˜›

  5. *Jumps up and down with excitement*
    I am so happy you are back. Not happy you are sick though. That is not much fun. Although doing a video recipe for us in that voice might be really funny. Congrats on the move. I am like you, I have to get things done. Once we got two truckloads of dirt and mulch. I had it all in the yard in under 3 days. By myself. Ended up with edemia. Yah, the joys of being anal retentive. Hope you post pics of the new place. I love your idea of moving instead of cleaning.

  6. Janet…I was just thinking about you! Moving has to be one of the most stressful things! And then to get bronchitis on top of everything! Good thing you made this warm, comforting cobbler. I was just perusing some sources that combine pears and apples….this is perfect! Feel better, kick your feet up and relax for a while! So glad you are back!!!!

    • Hi Anne! Well, I hope you like it if you try this. It turned out to be such a yummy combination.

      LOL@ Kims comment. Why do I feel like I am surrounded by a happy (and gorgeous of course) puppy? πŸ˜› I’m happy I’m back. Thank you for being happy about it too. That makes my day πŸ™‚
      Yikes to being anal! Sounds like you’re as bad as I am Kim!

  7. YAY! Janet’s back!! Janet’s BACK!! We’ve missed you and I’m SO glad you’re back! I hope you feel better, but what a dish to bring to the party!

    • Thanks Cassie! And yeah, I’m glad to hear that I’m settled too πŸ˜›

      Ravie, very glad is an understatement lol. I HATE chaos and mess.

      Thanks Elies!

  8. Aw, I missed you!!! So good to see that you survived the move, and the plague and all the rest. And thanks for greeting us with a fabulous cobbler…I need to make one soon πŸ™‚

  9. About the moving .. you sound like me: The need to finish even in the face of impending death πŸ˜‰

    Am SO going to buy the Schnapps today so I can make this!
