Easy Pumpkin Cobbler Recipe

Posted in : Dessert on by : Karen Metz Tags: , , ,

Have you ever heard of a pumpkin cobbler? I had never heard of it until I went to one of our many local farm stands to buy a sugar pumpkin. I was planning on buying one to make pumpkin pie, which I still have not baked yet. After picking out my pumpkin, I went to pay for it and the lady taking my money asked if I had ever made a pumpkin cobbler. I told her I had not even heard of it, but would love to try it. So she took out her old recipe for me to take a picture of with my phone. I couldn’t wait to get my pumpkin baked because I was very anxious to try it!

After taking out the seeds for roasting, I baked my pumpkin. I took the baked pumpkin and put it on a cooling rack to cool completely. Then I scooped out the flesh and mashed it. I had about 4 cups of mashed pumpkin and I only needed 1 cup (I doubled the recipe) so I went on a pumpkin baking spree! You will find links to my other pumpkin goodies below.

The recipe was very easy to make. My only complaint with it was the amount of sugar in the recipe. I am not sure if I could reduce the sugar without making a mess of the recipe, but I am planning on trying when I make it again.

Even though I thought it had too much sugar, and was overly sweet, the pan was wiped clean! I thought for sure there would be leftovers, but there wasn’t!

The other thing I would do differently the next time, is to add more nuts. We like nuts and I didn’t think there was enough of them.
