Being a girl with southern roots, I grew up with cobblers of every sort. Peach being the most prevalent. Cobblers and pies are a way of life down south and everyone does theirs just a little bit differently. So when I came across the recipe for this basic cobbler batter over at Heritage Recipes I was overjoyed. It's just like what I remember my grandma making when I was growing up. Now, I must admit that I can't remember her ever making a pumpkin cobbler, but having just canned some pumpkin for our stores I figured if it's good for a peach, it's got to be good for a pumpkin, right? So here it is, our very own Homestead Pumpkin Cobbler:

Both the hubby and I love the way this turned out. While the crust didn't come through as much as it would with a fruit filling it still turned out amazing. Sort of like a pumpkin pie but a bit more custard-like and a little less crusty. It's pretty close to being the perfect fall comfort treat. Simple, easy to whip up and oh so yummy. I strongly recommend this served warm with a bit of vanilla ice cream on top; the melding of hot and cold with that rich pumpkin center is hard to beat! I'd love to hear from you if you try this for yourself!
