Pecan Cobbler

Hello August!!

 

Happy Terrific Tuesday!!

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! Can you believe it is August?  It is back to school time already and summer is almost over! Wow!

I am so excited about this recipe because I had the pleasure of using Golden Eagle Syrup for a recipe contest. Golden Eagle Syrup is company based out of Fayette, AL.  The syrup is so delicious and has a wonderful honey taste.  It will go perfect with so many different recipes from homemade biscuits to pecan cobbler.  It reminds me of a southern tradition that can be shared with family and friends.  Golden Eagle is a wonderful product that will allow you to create memories through meals.

I decided to make this pecan cobbler and I am so glad I did because it turned out perfect. I think this will be the perfect dessert with fall right around the corner.

Pecan Cobbler

5 teaspoons vanilla extract

6 large eggs (slightly beaten)

2 cups of chopped pecans

1 cup of pecan halves

Pam Cooking Spray (Butter Flavor)

 

Instructions

In a large bowl, mix golden eagle syrup, brown sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs well. Stir in chopped pecans. Spoon half of the filling into crust lined in baking dish. Remove the second pie crust from the pan and cut into strips and lay over filling.  Spray top crust with the butter-flavor cooking spray.  Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the crust browns.

Reduce oven temperature to 350 F. Spoon the remaining filling over the top baked crust; arrange pecan halves on top in a pretty design. Bake the second half for 30 to 45 minutes or until set.  Let the cobbler cool 20 minutes.
