If you aren't pumpkin-ed out yet, I know you will enjoy today's recipe. I love #PumpkinWeek and inventing new or recreating recipes that embody my favorite season. I posted Semi-Homemade Pumpkin Butter and Pumpkin Pancakes with Bourbon Maple Syrup so far, and wanted to do a warm, baked dish for day 3.

I love all kinds of cobblers, crisps, crumbles, buckles, grunts - you name it, I love them all. I even have a Pinterest board dedicate to it - Cobblers-Crisps-Crumbles-Buckles-etc. It was a no-brainer that I would be making some Autumn inspired cobblers and crisps.

Pumpkin Cobbler starts as a creamy, custard-like base, and then you top it with a dough. It bakes in the oven for a bit and comes out almost like a cake. The cobbler just screamed to be topped with some French vanilla ice cream I had in the freezer. It was perfection. While I do like this recipe, and it's a good starting point as I have never had a pumpkin cobbler before, I will probably try and create my own hopefully soon.
