For the Cobbler

• 1 cup + 3 tablespoons all purpose flour

• 2 teaspoons baking powder

• 1/2 teaspoon salt

• 3/4 cup granulated sugar

• 1 teaspoon cinnamon

• 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

• 1/2 teaspoon cloves

• 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

For the Topping

• 1/2 cup granulated sugar

• 1/2 cup brown sugar

• 1/4 cup chopped pecans

• 1 1/2 cups very hot water


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

• In a medium sized bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and spices. Set aside.

• In a smaller bowl, stir pumpkin, milk, melted butter and vanilla together to combine. Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and mix to create a thick batter. Pour into a small 8-inch casserole dish with high sides.

• In a separate bowl, stir sugar, brown sugar and pecans together. Spread over the top of the batter evenly. Pour hot water over the entire thing {WITHOUT STIRRING A THING!} and bake for 40 minutes or once the middle is set. {Be sure to place on a baking sheet incase it bubbles over.} Cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
