Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler

Okay guys, this is a weird one.

This “cobbler” isn’t quite that, but much more of a pumpkin bread pudding, but not? I’m not quite sure how to explain this dessert’s category. All I know is that it is freakin’ bomb.

Also, this pumpkin pecan cobbler’s cooking technique is quite weird. But, please just trust me, follow the recipe, no matter how weird it may seem, and you’ll get this amazingly fluffy pumpkin pecan dessert that you will love, too.
