Pumpkin Cobbler the perfect alternative to pie! So good!
I've been craving Pumpkin Pie but wasn't in the mood to make a crust, so I made Pumpkin Cobbler instead! 

Pumpkin Cobbler is like the best of both worlds with a silky smooth pumpkin filling and crunchy spiced brown sugar nut topping! This recipe is so easy to make I might just forgo Pumpkin Pie this year at Thanksgiving and serve Pumpkin Cobbler instead! 

Pumpkin Cobbler like all my other Cobbler Recipes is perfect for an easy dessert for the family or taking to your next potluck. We love it with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream but Sweetened Whipping Cream would be equally delicious.

Here's how I made the recipe:
Mix together: 15 ounces Pumpkin Puree, 3 whole Eggs, 2/3 cup Brown Sugar, 1 cup Whole Milk, 1/2 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1 1/2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Ginger, 1/2 teaspoon Allspice, and 1/4 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, until well combined.

Here's my recipe for Homemade Roasted Pumpkin Puree, incase you don't want to use canned.
Pour Pumpkin Mixture into an 8"x11" pan.
In a mixing bowl stir together 1 cup All-Purpose Flour, 1/2 cup Brown Sugar,  1/2 cup Granulated Sugar, 1 cup Chopped Walnuts or Pecans,  1 teaspoon Baking Powder, 1/2 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon, 1/8 teaspoon Ground Ginger, 1/8 teaspoon Ground Allspice, and 1/8 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg, until well combined.
Make a well in the center of flour mixture. Mix in 1 whole Egg and 1 teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract.
Mix using a fork until mixture becomes super crumbly, and egg is no longer visible. 

Alternatively you can also add all ingredients to the mixer and mix until well combined.
Gently press crumb topping betweens fingers and cover top of Pumpkin Mixture.
Drizzle with 1/2 cup Melted Butter until evenly covered.
Bake in a 375 degree oven for 50-55 minutes until top is golden brown and center is just slightly loose.

Pumpkin Cobbler with walnuts or pecans! The perfect alternative to Pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving or Christmas! serenabakessimplyfromscratch.com


  1. We always did this with yellow cake mix (which I won't use any more) So I can not wait to try this! Pinning!

  2. This is just beautiful! I should probably wait for some occasion to make it but am seriously tempted to have it tonight.

  3. I would pass up the pie for a piece of this streusel topped goodness!

  4. i have such struggles with pie crust (shrinking! leakage! sticking!), so this sounds like the perfect way to get my pumpkin pie fix in (:

  5. Prepared this tonight for dessert while playing cards. Five stars from all who had some. I doubled the recipe and thought it would be too sweet, but it wasn't. If doubling the recipe next time, I will experiment with just 2/3 of a cup (1/3 cup doubled), as it was VERY buttery with 1 cup of melted butter.
