6 tablespoon butter (no substitutions)
1 cup pecans
1 and ˝ cup self-rising flour
1 and ˝ cup granulated sugar
⅔ cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 and ˝ cup packed light brown sugar
1 and ˝ cup hot water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Add butter to a 9x13 inch cake pan or casserole dish and melt in oven.
Once butter is melted, sprinkle the pecans over butter.
In a bowl, mix flour, sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir to combine, but don't over-mix.
Pour batter over butter and pecans, do not mix.
Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over batter, do not stir.
Carefully pour the hot water over the mixture; do not stir.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown.
Cobbler will not be firm after 35 minutes. It will firm up as it cools. If over-cooked, there will be less sauce.
it might be best served warm but it was delicious even at room temperature
