Summary

At our holiday gatherings, one of Mom’s pecan pies is the first dessert to go, especially since it only serves six and our family is very large. I created this decadent cobbler so that it is reminiscent of her pecan pie, serves twice as many, plus I added flavors of a traditional holiday bon bon. Delicious!
