Pumpkin cobbler is the perfect comfort food for Fall and a wonderful way to wrap up your Thanksgiving dinner.
Well, it’s full on pumpkin season now, so I don’t feel as bad about throwing pumpkin recipes in your face (I didn’t really feel that bad about it before).
Thanksgiving is just around the corner (at least in Canada), and what better way to finish off your dinner than with a pumpkin dessert?
For many people this means pumpkin pie, which is a staple this time of year. I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin pie though – it’s a texture thing. I feel like I’m getting a mouthful of pumpkin with each bite.
I love pumpkin flavored stuff, but not so much the pumpkin straight up on its own. So I wanted to try something a little different from the standard Pumpkin Cake and muffin recipes, but still with that comforting Fall pumpkin factor.
How to Make Pumpkin Cobbler
This Pumpkin Cobbler is one of the easiest desserts you can make, so don’t let the scone-like topping fool you.
I think it might be the shortest list of instructions I have ever written — you only need 2 bowls and don’t need to worry about room temperature ingredients.
The only tricky part about the topping is making sure you don’t overmix it. You really want to make sure that it’s just moistened enough that it starts to come together.
You will still have some bits of flour that are dry and that’s okay – just sprinkle them over the top once you’ve spooned the rest of the topping on.
I sprinkled the top of the Pumpkin Cobbler with coarse demerara sugar before baking, but this is optional. It adds a bit more sweetness and texture.
Top with whipped cream or ice cream to serve!
The flavor is amazing and I love the biscuit topping. If you like pumpkin pie, I am convinced that you will love this, and it will be a nice change from the standard pie desserts you may have during this season!

This looks amazing, Liv! I’ll take your half, because I loooooove pumpkin pie, haha. I really like the idea of making it into a cobbler — adds a bit more texture. As for me, I’d probably go for the classic crumble in this dish. I’ve been toying with the idea of a hibiscus pear crumble, so maybe I’d give that a go. 🙂
Thank you!! I love the texture of the biscuit topping, its the texture of the pumpkin that gets to me, haha. Mmm a crumble sounds delicious, I have one on my radar soon!

That dish would be perfect for a macaroni and cheese! Super yummy comfort food!
That looks wonderful! And the colours of the bakeware are stunning!! I think I would make a peach cobbler in it, just for a change from the pumpkin everything right now! Lol 😉 Thanks for the opportunity!
