As you may know, I love a good cobbler. I wanted to recreate this favorite of mine into something fun for the fall. I knew it had to include pumpkin and I knew it had to include pecans. And a beautiful thing was born. This delicious dessert is basically a little bit of pumpkin pie, pecan pie, and Texas-style cobbler all rolled into one. Fall dessert perfection. And it’s completely paleo!
This is definitely a recipe I will be making a lot this season since it combines some of my favorite fall flavors and is super easy to throw together (only about 8 minutes of prep time!). Just a little tip: save a corner piece for yourself. The buttery edges are where it’s at. You can thank me later 😉
- ⅓ cup (76g) grass-fed butter or ghee (salted recommended)
