Pecan Pie Cobbler

I couldn't find a recipe, so I took it upon myself and devised this amazing dessert that combines the ease of a cobbler and the rich taste of pecan pie. It tastes even better with ice cream or whipped topping. —Willa Kelley, Edmond, Oklahoma

    This recipe is excellent without needing a pie crust. The only thing I changed was I substituted the toffee bits for butterscotch chips because I didn't have the toffee bits. Also at the end of the baking time I turned on the broiler for just a minute.

    It was good, but not great. I give it 2 stars. Pecan pie is much better.

    We made this for Thanksgiving, and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

    WOW! Absolutely delicious. My husband said it was the most delicious dessert he's ever had. Traditional pecan pie is his favorite dessert, and he said from now on he prefers that I make this instead.

    This might be the best dessert I’ve ever had in my life!!! The butter and brown sugar made a Carmel sauce. The pecans added I nice texture. The only difference I had was using heath bars as uppised to plain toffee. The little added chocolate was nice.

    This cobbler hit the spot and served as the featured dessert at a Farm-to-Table dinner I helped organize recently. We needed to feature local pecans, and what a wonderful way to do it! I didn't change a thing and definitely recommend serving with ice cream!
