Scrumptious Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler for Your Thanksgiving Table

I visited Pam at Everyday Living one day (as I do often) way back in August.  In her early roundup post for fall dishes, Perfectly Pumpkin!, she shared the best looking recipe for a pumpkin pecan cobbler.

Of course, I had to try it!

Don’t we all need a trial run on something new before our big turkey day?  I haven’t done much to prepare for ten gathered at our table this year, except this one small thing.  I’ve got to get moving!  Anyone else feeling behind on this?

I’m excited, and it feels like Christmas rather than Thanksgiving with a packed-tight schedule already.

Shall we begin preparing the cobbler?

The first step is to mix the dry ingredients from the recipe linked in Pam’s post.  Next, you mix canned pumpkin, milk, melted butter, and vanilla.  Stir it all together and pour it into the dry ingredients.

Transfer the thick batter to a square dish prepared with vegetable spray.  Stir together the dry topping and sprinkle it over the top.

And, then this trick reminds me of a molten recipe.  Pour water over everything and bake.

The cobbler comes out of the oven resembling a soft and cake-y bar recipe.

It’s a little gooey along the bottom (which makes my heart sing!), so you should scoop it with a spoon.

Being huge pecan fans, we enjoyed this immensely.  But, I’ll let you in on a little secret…

Don’t forget the ice cream – Blue Bell, of course.

Homemade Vanilla or Vanilla Bean are the best!

We are now inside of two weeks until Thanksgiving.  Does that scare you a little bit?  (Yikes!)  I share this because I think you’ll want to include this cobbler on your Thanksgiving desserts table if pecans are popular with your family.

Are you a pecan fan?  How about your family…everyone in?

Blessings~

    We LOVE pecans. My mom and hubby share the same fave ice cream….butter pecan, so I think this would go over like “whooooooohooooo” around here. LOL

    I will print it out and give it to ST to do her thang.

    Thanks so much for this recipe.

    Basement update: 2nd section has ceiling and rim joists painted as of last night. I realized that doing it with a brush would actually be easier because I don’t need to go back and do a 2nd coat. I have to go back later today and fill in those spots that didn’t absorb …that is the whole issue with the paint sprayer and that wood down there….you have to LOB it on. So after a bit of “lobbing” that will all be done.

    I do need the sprayer for the ductwork though. So I will still have to spend and hour cleaning the sprayer after that. UGH. Then tomorrow I can etch and seal the floor…THAT is the easy part! Then I can get all the furniture back in there. The Family Room area will be DONE! Next is the gym area, then my eBay area, THEN my crafting/laundry/storage area (3 or 4 sections for that one…it’s big). Now that I am not spraying everything….hubby can help!!! It will get done twice as fast!

      Awesome, Robin. You have a plan and you’re sticking to it. I like that. Just think: you’ll be finished very soon and enjoying your new spaces. Woo-hoo! Happy weekend! 🙂

    Those are some seriously awesome recipes! Thanks for the link which I missed before. However, I’m still focusing on tomatoes as I have a zillion in my garden still. I guess I’ll just need to combine the to in the pumpkin ragu recipe.

    I made the pumpkin cobbler Tuesday for a small group of ladies. It was a hit! My daughter ate some of the leftover the next day and loved it .
    FYI : I doubled the recipe and when I added the 3 cups of water , I thought I had messed it up !!! But I didn’t!!! It turned out great
    Will make a great Thanksgiving dessert!

      Thank you for sharing that, Sharron. I’m glad you all enjoyed it. Maybe I’ll add this back to my dessert menu. Yes, that water step looks sort of scary, but it turns out great. 🙂
