Pumpkin Cobbler

Pumpkin a beautiful vegetable to grow, so many different varieties too. If you are a fan of pumpkin pie but not a fan of making a pie crust, this is the recipe for you. Simple to put together, makes a generous amount and so very delicious! My son Rick loves pumpkin pie, my daughter Anastasia as well but she is not a fan of pie crust, this dessert is perfect for her and my son says it is just as good as pumpkin pie! Today I used butternut squash but any pumpkin will do.
Enjoy.
