My craving for Southern food just wouldn’t be complete without dessert, and cobbler is a pretty Southern dessert. This Pecan Cobbler recipe isn’t the traditional fruit cobbler recipe I’m used to, but it does remind me of another favorite Southern dessert: pecan pie. How delicious does that sound? It’s almost like getting two desserts in one. I love it!
This decadent Southern dessert recipe is super easy to make. The cobbler and sauce are created in one pan. The luscious, velvety texture makes the perfect bite…after bite…after bite!
The good news is the list of ingredients for my pecan cobbler was nice and short. It was also filled with several items I keep on hand, so I didn’t have to buy a lot. Really, all I had to add to my shopping list was butter, milk, and pecans. The bad news is the pecans were kind of pricey at $10 for a bag. I used most of the bag for this recipe with just a little bit left over.
I have never made a cobbler before, but the process was pretty straightforward. I spent 12 minutes on prep work and 35 minutes cooking for a total of 47 minutes. That doesn’t include time to cool a bit before serving.
The instructions were easy to follow, but I came very close to making a mistake in step 4. That step says to add sugar, and I almost added the granulated and brown sugar when just the granulated sugar should have been added. The brown sugar doesn’t go into the cobbler until step 6.
Making this dessert was just a matter of mixing up a few ingredients, then layering the mixture with the rest of the ingredients in a baking dish. No problem. Then you have to pour hot water over the layered ingredients. What? It looked and sounded weird to me since I had no idea how to make a cobbler, but it all worked out. I ended up with a crisp and gooey pecan cobbler that was to die for.
