Pecan Pie Cobbler Recipe–Off Topic but a great food item for Thanksgiving Day

Recipe One– in a skillet


Cobbler Batter

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Pecan Filling

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan pieces


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Place a 9-inch or 10-inch cast-iron skillet in the oven to heat with the oven. Once preheated, add 1 stick butter to hot skillet and allow to rest in oven until melted.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the remaining Cobbler Batter ingredients in a bowl; set aside.
  3. In a separate bowl, make the Pecan Filling by combining the brown sugar, egg, vanilla, salt, melted butter, bourbon, and pecans. Stir until sugar is partially dissolved.
  4. Carefully remove skillet from oven. Pour batter over melted butter (do not stir—the batter should be separated from the butter). Pour Pecan Filling in center of skillet. Transfer to oven and bake until browned and edges slightly pull away from pan, 30 to 35 minutes. Serve while still warm.

Recipe Two — Simple 8×8 Pan Recipe

  • Melt half a stick of Butter in an 8×8 pan while preheating oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix a cup of Flour, 3/4 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder, 1/2 cup of milk, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract and 1 tablespoon rum.
  • Add the mix to the pan in dollops (so that you do not stir the butter in).
  • Sprinkle a mix of 2/3 cups brown sugar and 1 cup of pecans over the batter.
  • Pour 1 1/2 cups of very hot water over the pan, evenly. It will look like a hot mess.
  • Bake 30-40 minutes, then let cool.
