(Vegan) Cranberry & Pear Cobbler

My (Vegan) Cranberry & Pear Cobbler is bright, cheery, tart, and sweet. It replicates the Christmas spirit in a single dish, and will bring a smile to your loved one’s face after each bite. The drop biscuits? Perfectly balances out the cobbler filling by adding a nice crisp crunch that brings good warmth.

The beauty of this healthy & easy dessert recipe is that is truly only takes 10 minutes of “hard work,” then you let the oven do its side of the magic.

As you may notice in the picture above, I prefer to dice my apples & pears pretty large for more texture when eating. However, if you don’t like to take large bites, than I recommend dicing the fruit small and evenly.

I also really recommend making small and thin drop biscuits for easy serving. Last tip/recommendation is to lightly crush the cranberries in a ziplock bag before tossing with the other ingredients. It will help create more juice for a tender, tart, and delicious cobbler.

  1. It is truly amazing with the cranberries and pears. I usually use fresh mixed berries and oatmeal toppings but this gave me an idea for breakfast.
