Pecan Pie Cobbler

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together sugar, corn syrup, eggs, melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt for the pecan filling. Stir in chopped pecans and pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  3. In a medium-sized bowl, combine flour and salt for the cobbler crust. Cut in cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Gradually add cold water, one tablespoon at a time, until a dough forms.
  4. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. Cut into strips or shapes if desired.
  5. Arrange the dough pieces over the pecan filling in the baking dish. Sprinkle sugar crystals on top of the dough.
  6. Bake for 45 to 50 minutes, or until the crust is golden brown and the filling is bubbly. If the crust browns too quickly, cover it with foil halfway through baking.
  7. Allow the cobbler to cool for at least 15 minutes before serving. Serve warm with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Tips for Improvement:

  • Use fresh, high-quality pecans and butter for the best flavor.
  • Ensure the butter is cold and other ingredients are at room temperature for the crust.
  • Be cautious not to overmix the dough for the crust.
  • Roll out the dough to an even thickness for consistent baking.
  • Monitor the cobbler while baking and adjust temperature or cover with foil if necessary.
  • Let the cobbler cool sufficiently before serving to allow the filling to set.

Ideas for Serving:

  • Pair with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for a classic dessert experience.
  • Serve alongside fresh berries or a seasonal fruit compote for added freshness.
  • Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee, tea, or dessert wine to complement the flavors.
  • Present the cobbler in an attractive dish garnished with mint leaves or powdered sugar for an elegant touch.
