Pecan Pie Cobbler


1/2 cup butter, cubed
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup sugar
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-1/2 cups coarsely chopped pecans
1 cup packed brown sugar
3/4 cup brickle toffee bits
1-1/2 cups boiling water
Vanilla ice cream, optional


1. Preheat oven to 350°. Place butter in a 13x9-in. baking pan; heat pan in oven 3-5 minutes or until butter is melted. Meanwhile, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Stir in milk and vanilla until combined.
2. Remove baking pan from oven; add batter. Sprinkle with pecans, brown sugar and toffee bits. Slowly pour boiling water over top (do not stir). Bake, uncovered, until golden brown, 30-35 minutes. Cool on wire rack for 30 minutes (cobbler will thicken upon cooling). Serve warm, with ice cream if desired.

Helpful Hints:

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.
