Holiday Bon Bon Pecan Cobbler

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!
