pear or whatever cobbler (crisp)

Submitted by: MARIQUAIL

Introduction

A tasty cobbler recipe I somewhat cobbled together based on a few recipes floating around the internet. The amount of sugar can and likely should be reduced unless the fruit is under-ripe or not very sweet.

Ingredients

    2 cups (at most) white sugar
    a lot of fruit (about 2 cups chopped but I tend to make more since fruit is so good)
    1 cup of oats (instant or not)
    1 cup of hazelnuts (walnuts would work too)
    1 cup of flour (whole wheat is fine)
    1 teaspoon of baking powder
    1 teaspoon of baking soda
    1 "pinch" of salt (maybe about 1/4 tsp)
    1 tsp of vanilla
    6 tablespoons of thick yogurt (if it's not thick enough you can strain it through a cheese cloth)
    1 tablespoon of vanilla
    at least 1 tbsp of cinnamon (I recommend 2+)
    1 tablespoon of maple extract or 3 tbsp maple syrup.
    a splash of lemon juice

Directions

I would say this makes about 10 pretty healthy scoops, if you serve it with ice cream, you could probably serve more like 12.

Basically, you quarter a bunch of fruit, and you might want to peel it, though I didn't. Soak it in a 2 cups of sugar (for ripe fruit use less) with a dash of lemon juice (also adjusted for how much fruit). Mix it all together, let it sit.

For the crust, measure out a cup of hazelnuts, grind them down as fine as you can (I used a food processor). Add in a cup of oats and a cup of flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour from Bob's Red Mill, which is possibly my favorite flour). Add all other dry ingredients. Drop in six tablespoons of Greek yogurt (I used the low fat plain version from Trader Joe's). Mix it with your hands until it starts to come together. Add a tablespoon of vanilla extract and at least two tablespoons of cinnamon. (I love cinnamon so I would use more like three).

Now get a deep pie dish. Preheat the oven to 375. Lay out a thin layer of the crust on the bottom, pour in the fruit (you can add some cinnamon to this too). Sprinkle the rest of the crust on top.

Put foil on top. Bake 20 minutes. Remove foil, bake another ten. Depending on how deep the cobbler is, lower the oven to 350 and keep on baking until the fruit is as tender as you like it. The crust part cooks in about 30 to 40 minutes total depending on your oven.

Let cool, add some cold vanilla ice cream (or don't) and enjoy =)
