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?
