How to make Pecan Pie Cobbler
If you want to put a twist on a Thanksgiving favorite, try turning your pecan pie into a cobbler. It’s absolutely delicious and very easy to make. I was given this recipe several years back and it’s been on our Thanksgiving table ever since. I halved the recipe just for us so you may want to double it for a larger crowd of folks.
I can’t believe what stores want for a bag of pecans these days. If I could find some still in the shell I’d sit down and pick them myself. That’s what we did back in the days anyhow, same with walnuts too. My Grandmothers would have sacks or baskets full of whole pecans and walnuts and come time for the holidays we all pitched in cracking nuts. I actually went out and found me an old fashioned nut cracker with the picks like my Grandmothers had last year, now to find the nuts so I can use it. One year, I was around 10 years old or so and we were all gathered helping Nannie Polly and Papa shell pecans and my brother and I didn’t have anything to crack ours with. Nannie spoke up and told us to just find a nutcracker in the kitchen if we wanted to help. Rather than go looking for the silver looking ones that they were using I grabbed the wooden nutcracker that sat on the dry sink. I plopped myself down on the floor and grabbed a bowl full of pecans and then tried to figure out how this wooden nutcracker was going to work. I didn’t notice that everyone else had stopped what they were doing to watch my ordeal. My not so genius of an idea was to just start whacking the shells with the head of my nutcracker which only resulted in my pecans flying all over the living room and everyone having themselves a good laugh.
