This is hands down one of the best desserts I've ever made. I had zero self control around this Pecan Cobbler. I could have just drank all that yummy sauce in the bottom of the pan. AMAZING!! It is 100% going to be on our Thanksgiving and Christmas table!
This dessert is best served warm right out of the oven. Thankfully it only takes a couple of minutes to make. It takes less than an hour from start to finish. Perfect to throw in the oven after the holiday meal. Everyone should be ready for dessert by the time the cobbler comes out of the oven.
We served this Pecan Cobbler with some vanilla ice cream, but it would also be great with some fresh whipped cream. Either way, this will taste fantastic! I promise!
