2 rolled refrigerated pie crusts (2 come in a package)
2-1/2 cups brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted + 1 Tablespoon
2-1/2 cups light corn syrup
4 teaspoons vanilla extract
6 eggs, beaten lightly
2 cups chopped pecans
1-1/2 cups pecan halves
Preheat oven to 425 degrees (you will lower to 350 degrees after baking the first layer).
Grease the bottom of the dish with non-stick spray. I use a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish.
Roll out one pie crust into a rectangular shape and place it in the dish (it does not have to be perfect and does not need to go all the way up the sides of the casserole dish).
Add the brown sugar, melted butter, corn syrup, eggs, and vanilla extract to a large bowl. Mix well.
Add the 2 cups of chopped pecans and mix well.
Pour half of the mixture over the pie crust.
Roll out the second pie crust and place it on top of the mixture (again, the crust does not need to be rolled out perfectly).
Brush or spoon the tablespoon of melted butter over the crust and bake for approximately 15 minutes or until the crust is golden brown.
Remove from oven and turn the oven down to 350 degrees.
Stir the remainder of the pecan pie mixture and pour over the cooked crust.
Add the 1-1/2 cups of pecan halves to the top of the cobbler. (Either sprinkle the pecans randomly or place in order).
Bake again for 30 minutes.
Allow the pecan pie cobbler to cool for at least one hour before serving.
OPTIONAL: Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to the top of the warm cobbler
