My hubby is picky when it comes to pecan pie he loves Goode Company if it’s bought and if it’s homemade it’s got to be my moms. I’ve tried several times to make the EXACT same recipe she does, but he always says there’s something missing or it’s good just not as good as hers. Oh well I’ve moved on from trying to make the pie and trying to find another pecan dessert nitch that keeps him going till my mom brings his pie. This recipe is super easy and it’s kindof neat how just layering ingredients comes out like it does. I personally really liked it, hubby said it’s ok just throws him off with cake like and pie mixed together and that I should keep trying recipes.

Cobbler will not be firm after 35 minutes. It will firm up as it cools. If over-cooked, there will be less sauce.
