During my school years, I always associated the beginning of a new school year with fall, despite the fact that late August in Mississippi feels nothing even remotely close to fall. In fact, summer can last well into October. But, back-to-school clothes are notoriously far more appropriate for fall than summer.
I tended to pick out lots of new fall clothes and wanted desperately to wear them in the new school year. (Did I mention it was so very hot?) Invariably, my mother would talk me out of wearing my new jeans and sweaters and tell me that I was “rushing the season.”
Yesterday as I shared those pancakes with cinnamon pears and today as I’m about to share this apple cobbler, I keep hearing my mother’s voice telling me, “You’re rushing the season.” True, it’s not technically fall yet. But, I can no longer resist the pull of apples and pears!
This cobbler has such big brown sugar flavor in both the filling and the biscuit topping. It’s so gooey and sweet and cinnamon-y and absolutely irresistible!
I also cannot resist supporting a great cause. And, with The Pampered Chef’s Round-Up from the Heart program, we can all help fight hunger. It works in a couple of different ways. First, there are the Nourish soup bowls you see pictured here. For each bowl purchased, $2 is donated to Feeding America. That helps provide 18 meals! Also, when you order from The Pampered Chef, you can choose to round-up your order total to the nearest dollar or more to donate to your local member of the Feeding America network.
It is estimated that 1 in 6 Americans are dealing with hunger. The Pampered Chef’s Round-Up from the Heart program makes it so simple to help. They began the program in 1991 and have contributed more than $24 million to Feeding America!
The Pampered Chef is giving one lucky Bake or Break reader a fantastic prize pack! Included will be a set of 4 Round-Up from the Heart Nourish bowls, Bamboo Spoon Set, and a Deep Covered Baker (all pictured in the photos above).
