The rich caramel sauce is created from butter and brown sugar baking to saucy perfection. Pecan Cobbler Recipe is a sweet buttery dessert that’s loaded with toasted pecans.

This dessert by far is one of the best desserts I’ve ever made. If it’s not the best, it’s in the top five for sure!

Pecan Pie Cobbler has a fluffy with a crisp top, crunchy from the pecans, and is self-saucing. Self-saucing simply means the ingredients create a sauce as it cooks. This is a result of layering the ingredients as I indicate in the recipe box below.

More about this Pecan Pie Cobbler recipe

Unlike most cobblers, this Pecan Cobbler is absent of any fruit. It’s rich and totally irresistible. Enjoy it plain or with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream.

  1. I do not recommend using margarine in place of the butter, the caramel turn out the same using margarine. Stick with the real thing in this recipe.
  2. I make this pecan cobbler with self-rising flour, I haven’t test it with all-purpose flour.
  3. Yes, this recipe has a lot of sugar. The sugar and butter make the caramel sauce and it’s amazing!

Self-rising flour is all-purpose flour with baking powder and salt added. To make your own, combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour with 1 and 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon of salt.

Tips and Recommendations

  • I use whole milk.
  • I cannot stress enough the importance of using real butter. Do not use margarine.
  • As well, I do not recommend reducing either the brown sugar or the hot water in this recipe.
  • Additionally, I don’t recommend reducing the amount of butter. These three components are what make the sauce and it’s detrimental this ingredients as well as the amounts are correct.
How long does Pecan Cobbler last?

Three days in the fridge. Store your cobbler in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 72 hours.

How do I reheat Pecan Pie Cobber?

To reheat, you can reheat it either in the oven or the microwave. To reheat it in the oven, turn your oven to 350 degrees F and heat until the cobbler is heated through. Furthermore, for the microwave, cover it with a damp paper towel and reheat it in 30-second increments until heated through.

    Tried this tonight for the first time, my only variation was adding another 1/4 c pecans. It was delicious! my husband said he liked it better than traditional pecan pie (which is his favorite dessert) easy to make and half the time to bake compared to pecan pie

    This recipe is great! Being in the south pecans are plentiful. A friend gave me about 3 gallons of pecans – unshelled of course. (Removing the nuts is very time consuming). I love pecan pie but it can be very sweet. This was the answer. I will definitely make this again.

    I love this Pecan Pie Cobbler. I make it to take to church and everyone loves it. We are doing a cookbook at church, could I share your recipe in our cookbook? Than you so much, and God bless you.

    1. No please don’t, I’d rather you refer everyone to my site for the recipe. This site is my job and how I make money and I don’t unless people visit. Thank you for understanding.

  4. 5 stars
    Thank you so much for posting this recipe! My family loved it. I’ll be honest, I was a little worried when the last ingredient is “just pour hot water over it and don’t stir it”. I kept checking it to see it cook and it did not dissapoint. The pecans were soft and almost carmalized. Even my son-in-law said “I don’t even like pecans, but this was soooo good”, I knew it was a hit! Lol. Merry Christmas and thank you again😊

    1. Yayy!! I love that! I promise you, I cannot make this very often because I will eat it in a day! I can’t stay away from it.

  5. 5 stars
    This is the most delicious dessert that I’ve eaten in a very long time!!
    I added about 3 more Tbs of milk than the recipe called for and an extra 1/4 hot water.
    Do not overcook because the cobbler looks loose. It will firm up nicely as it cools. I served mine
    warm with vanilla ice cream.

  6. I made this cobbler for a supper with friends and was asked for recipe. I didn’t have any leftovers. Everyone liked it. It did taste better than any pecan pie l’d ever eaten. It was so easy to make.

    A girl I work with told me the other day that I needed to find a pecan cobbler recipe. And I stumbled onto this one. It’s simple and easy so I bought my butter and got ready to make it for Thanksgiving. Everyone LOVED it! My aunt, who is matriarch now, said I’ll have to make 2 pans of it from now on to insure there’s enough! There was barely enough left last night to bring everyone a sample for the office. One of my cousins made sure she had the link on her phone so she can make it too! Thank you for giving us the best dessert for Thanksgiving!!!!!

    1. it’s wonderful, I had never seen it online until I posted it, now it’s very popular. I love it so much too and it makes me happy you all enjoyed it.
