This Pecan Pie Cobbler is such an amazing fall dessert. You’ll make this cobbler pretty much the same way you would a fruit cobbler.

First melt a stick of butter in a 9×13-inch pan by placing it in a 350 degree oven until melted. Watch it carefully so you don’t burn the butter.

Stir together the flour, granulated sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Then stir in the milk and vanilla.

Once the butter is melted, spoon the batter into the pan as evenly as possible. Sprinkle the pecans, brown sugar, and toffee bits on top then slowly pour 1 1/2 cups of boiling water evenly into the baking pan.

Bake for 30 minutes and get ready to dig into the most delicious gooey pecan pie dessert you have ever tasted.

  1. I followed directions as written, but the bottom was runny and oozing out the side, so I left it in the oven for 10 more minutes. I let it sit for 30 minutes and could see it was still runny on the bottom. I cut a tiny square and it was like brown water. Tasted great, since it was all those nuts. So I thought maybe refrigerate it. Did that for 2 hours. A little firmer but still runny. What did I do wrong?

  2. I first made this last summer on our sailboat in my small oven and only made a 3/4 recipe. I made it for Thanksgiving And Christmas (everyone loved it)! It’s my favorite dessert to bring to a potluck! Thanks for a great recipe, so much easier than a pie! Served with ice cream or whipped cream!
