Pumpkin Pecan Cobbler

​Are you ready for fall? I know I am, and if you aren't, then this pumpkin pecan cobbler will be sure to get you ready.

I have to admit that fall is by far my favorite season, and I say, bring on the pumpkin spice everything! There's just something about the cool weather and the leaves turning orange that speaks to me. By the way, if you've never visited Colorado in the fall, then you just have to make a trip here to see the Colorado's Fall Colors. Actually a quick google search will bring up some spectacular photos. While I love spring and all the spring colors, my allergies aren't a big fan. Summer is just too hot and winter is too cold, whereas fall is just right! I know some people get sick of hearing and seeing pumpkins, but not me. Growing up my mother would make pumpkin soups, and would even incorporate pumpkins with rice in certain meals. It was there my love of pumpkin began. Now that I'm older, I have gotten into the pumpkins and pumpkin spice craze, and I even make my own pumpkin spice. However, if you are looking for a pumpkin dessert, then this pumpkin pecan cobbler will be sure to hit the spot and satisfy.
