Golden Eagle Syrup, the Heart of This Recipe
I am so excited about this recipe because I had the pleasure of using Golden Eagle Syrup for a recipe contest- a company based out of Fayette, AL. The syrup is so delicious and has a wonderful honey taste.
The Golden Eagle Syrup goes perfectly well in so many different recipes from homemade biscuits to pecan cobbler. It reminds me of a southern tradition that can be shared with family and friends.
Golden Eagle is a wonderful product that will allow you to create memories through meals. I decided to make this pecan cobbler and I am so glad I did because it turned out perfect. I think this will be the perfect dessert with fall right around the corner.

You can replace pecans with walnuts, cashews or even peanuts. Mix these nuts to your liking. You can toast your nuts before adding them to the butter; it will give an extra maple taste.
Surprisingly, you can add some toffee bits to the filling. It will add extra flavor to your cobbler.
In fact, you can make pecan cobbler a gluten-free dessert. Simply, use gluten-free flour. Another substitute is almond flour, which works pretty well with this tasty snack.
In addition, you can make this dessert into a chocolate pecan cobbler. So, go ahead and add two spoons of unsweetened cacao powder to the flour. Then, sprinkle some cacao over the pecan layer. What a great taste for chocolate lovers!
If you want your cobbler to be tangy and rich, you can add some buttermilk or Greek yogurt. When you are preparing your cobbler, don’t be afraid to experiment a little bit. You will get an additional taste each time!
Top Tips and Tricks
When the cobbler’s consistency is still runny or soupy, it means that it is not done yet and requires more time in the oven.
It is pretty normal to have the pecan cobbler bubbling. In fact, it is a good sign that indicates the evaporation of water in the oven.
It is crucial to keep checking on the cobbler while it is cooking in the oven. We don’t want to overcook it, otherwise we will end up with very hard pan of pecan cobbler. Again, keep an eye on it and make sure you have properly adjusted the temperature.
When the crust is still uncooked, the same goes for the filling. In that case, you need to pop the pan back in the oven. It better be placed on the lower rack to ensure it is close to the source of heat.
It is really important to use real butter and not margarine.
You can easily make this recipe ahead of time by storing the batter properly in the fridge. Then whenever you feel like having this delicious dessert, you can take it out, bake it, and enjoy its delicious taste.
Make sure to let the pie cool completely before you cover it and place it in the fridge for storage.
