Ingredients

For the Pumpkin Filling:

  • 1 (15-ounce) can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Cobbler Topping:

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans

For Serving:

  • Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream (optional)
  • Additional pecans for garnish (optional)

Instructions

  1. Preheat Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).
  2. Prepare the Pumpkin Filling:
    • In a large bowl, combine the pumpkin puree, granulated sugar, brown sugar, milk, cream, eggs, vanilla extract, flour, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Whisk until all the ingredients are well combined and the mixture is smooth.
    • Pour this mixture into a greased 8×8 inch (20×20 cm) baking dish or a similar sized casserole dish.
  3. Make the Cobbler Topping:
    • In a separate bowl, mix together 1 cup of flour, 1/2 cup of granulated sugar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar, baking powder, and salt.
    • Slowly pour the melted butter into the dry ingredients and stir until combined. The mixture should be crumbly.
    • Sprinkle the cobbler topping evenly over the pumpkin filling in the baking dish.
    • Sprinkle chopped pecans on top of the cobbler topping.
  4. Bake the Cobbler:
    • Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for about 40-45 minutes, or until the cobbler topping is golden brown and the filling is set.
  5. Cool and Serve:
    • Once baked, remove the cobbler from the oven and let it cool for at least 10 minutes. This dessert can be served warm or at room temperature.
    • Serve the pumpkin pecan cobbler with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream on top if desired, and garnish with additional pecans.

Enjoy your homemade Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler, a comforting and festive treat that’s perfect for sweater weather and cozy gatherings!
