Pineapple Cobbler

This weekend will be a very bittersweet weekend for me and my family.

My Grammie would have been 93 on Sunday (3/20) and this will be
the first birthday since she has been gone.

I've really been dreading writing this post because I didn't know how I could get through it without crying. The loss of Grammie still feels very fresh and I miss her tremendously.

I know that she would be mad though if we didn't go on with our lives because she hated being a burden but she truly was not a burden at all. She lived with my mom the last two years of her life and it was so much fun having her around all the time.

I could tell the weekend that we went home for Cole's 1st Birthday party that she wasn't feeling very well and was trying to make it a great occasion for us. She stayed in the kitchen with me the entire time I was cooking and baking away. She would just sit and read like she always would. That was the last weekend I saw her and 10 days later she went to be with Our Lord and Savior.

Pineapple cobbler was her favorite weeknight dessert. Yes, I said weeknight dessert. Because, It's so easy to mix together it makes a great weeknight treat. We love pineapple in my family (mainly because it is something EVERYONE will eat). So why not put it into a cobbler and enjoy it warm! When we moved to South Carolina, this was the first recipe she for from me! It's definitely a treat!

She loved desserts and I would always tell her when I wanted to make this and sometimes she would even have this for breakfast!

Pineapple Cobbler
recipe from my mom, pineapple is my addition

1/2 stick of butter
1 cup of self rising flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 cup of milk
1 can of pineapple chunks or tidbits,drained

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butter into 9 by 9 baking dish and place into oven to melt. Watch the butter carefully as it could burn quickly. Once the butter is melted, let cool for a few minutes. Add drained pineapple to baking dish.

Mix together in a bowl the flour,sugar, and milk. Pour the dough onto the pineapple and butter. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes.

Love you and miss you! I know she is enjoying heaven with her sisters and Grampie, but I just wish I had her to hold me on hard days and give me her words to live by.

Aren't gramdma's special? Mine passed away about a year ago as well. I still have so many amazing memories of her. She did share a few of her recipes with me and every time I make them I am reminded of her. This looks like such a beautiful and simple dessert. Thanks for sharing!

Where are you in S. Carolina? I'm thinking we might not live to far from each other! :)

So sorry for your loss. Sounds like you have some wonderful memories to cherish of her including a delicious dessert.

It looks absolutely fantastic! I have never made one or even heard of a cobbler with pineapple, but if I could, I would have a dish right now (with a little ice cream on top).

So very sorry for your loss. Made me stop and pick up the phone to call my grandmother. Pineapple cobbler is such a fantastic idea & I can't wait to try it out.
