Amazing Pecan Cobbler

Pecan pie has nothing on this Amazing Pecan Cobbler!

I have never really liked pecan pie. I think it's way too much sugar and that's coming from someone who loves sweets. However, it's my husband's favorite pie and that means every once in a while I will make him one because I love him. Sometimes he'll make a compromise and we pick out a dessert that is similar to what he wants but something I will eat. Because he definitely won't eat a dessert all by himself! Our compromise last year for the holidays was this pecan cobbler. It has the flavors of pecan pie but without being so overly sugary. I personally love cobbler and it's one of my favorite types of dessert, so I knew I would love this recipe. We ended up loving it so much that I made it for Thanksgiving AND Christmas.

What you need:
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, cubed
  • 1 cup + 2 Tbsp. all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup toffee bits
  • 1 1/2 cups boiling water
  • Vanilla ice cream for serving (optional)
  1. Place butter in a 9x13-inch pan and put pan in a preheated 350 degree oven to melt. Watch closely so it doesn't brown or burn.
  2. While butter melts, mix together flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt in a medium bowl.
  3. Stir in milk and then spread on top of melted butter as evenly as you can.
  4. Top with pecans, brown sugar, and toffee bits on top.
  5. Then carefully pour boiling water over the top - DO NOT STIR.
  6. Bake in the preheated 350 degree oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until top is golden brown.
  7. Cool on a wire rack for about 20 minutes.
  8. Serve topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, if desired.
Recipe from The Recipe Critic

I love when desserts are turned into bars too, so these Better Than Your Mama's Pecan Pie Bars from Your Cup of Cake are high on my to-make list. The last pecan pie recipe I posted was a recipe for Butterscotch Pecan Pie that I, not surprisingly, didn't enjoy but my husband LOVED.
