Apple Raisin & Pecan Cobbler W/Splenda

The original recipe for this recipe came from an old cookbook of 1974 called Mountain Measures, which is a collection of old West Virginia Recipes.

I recreated this recipe somewhat to make it my own, I used Splenda Blend Brown Sugar, & Regular Splenda, then added Raisins & doubled the recipe to make a large family size recipe.

It turned out quite tasty, & the toasted pecans on top & inside with the raisins add just the right amount of flavor.

My husband wanted an Apple Cobbler this time instead of a pie. I used Granny Smith & Apple Pink Cripps for the apples, & it turned out great.
