Today is 9/11. Today is a difficult day for our family. Having a hubs in the fire service on that day was a tough one. The 343 were his brothers just like every other firefighter in this great nation. 9/11 is a solemn day- one to stop & reflect on just how great this country is, how vulnerable we can be & to cherish every single day because sometimes some crazy things happen- things that you would never dream could be possible. Those things change people, lives, families & nations – forever.
Because this is a day where I just want to curl up on the couch with my babies & do nothing else but watch coverage of what happened that day- I thought I would need some comforting sweets to snack on. I figured that a nce warm cobbler full of cinnamon would do the trick. I had been mulling over different cobbler ideas all summer but I just never wanted to use my berries that I had for any cobbler recipes. Buuuuut now- since I already had a ton of pears & I had pear pie filling & caramel on hand- I decided to make these cobbler bars.
I love Yummy Bar Recipes!
Oh my- they are better than I can even describe & exactly the comfort food I was after. They were also so incredibly simple. Do you see a theme here?? I try to do my best to keep the steps to just a few & not make things too complicated around here. I like simple recipes & so figure with everyone being so busy these days- I’m sure you do too. On days like today- who wants to slave away in the kitchen. Quick & simple is key.
