How To Make caramel-pecan cobbler

  • 1
    For pastry, in a medium bowl stir together both flours and salt. Using pastry blender cut in the 1/4 cup butter until pieces are pea-size. Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of the cold water over part of the flour mixture; gently toss with a fork to mix. Push moistened pastry to side of bowl. Repeat moistening flour mixture, using 1 Tbsp. of water at a time, until all of the flour mixture is moistened. Form dough into a ball.

    On a lightly floured surface use your hands to slightly flatten pastry into a square. Roll pastry from center to edges into a 9x9-inch square, lightly dusting with flour as needed. Set aside.
