I am so excited to be sharing this recipe that I created for the Cape Cod Select Holiday Blogger Recipe Challenge a few years ago.
This Rustic Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Cobbler Roll was my entry. I did not win anything, but my family won by having this cobbler to eat!
It is perfect to add to your Thanksgiving dessert table.
Frozen Cranberries are so wonderful to bake with because they are always available. I like to keep a bag on hand to use year round.
These were so perfect and such a vibrant color.
My husband and I eat a lot of cranberries in savory as well as sweet dishes.
Rustic Cranberry-Orange-Pecan Cobbler Roll is perfect for the upcoming holidays, and is a delicious twist on an old fashioned cobbler. It is a cobbler crust, rolled out and filled with cranberries, orange zest, cinnamon-sugar, and pecans. The roll is cut into slices and baked in a simple syrup sauce.
Assemble the ingredients.
Whisk together a simple syrup of water and sugar in baking pan. Bake until dough slices are ready to go into this.
Mix together ingredients for filling.
Prepare and roll out the crust.
Arrange part of the filling onto the dough, pressing the cranberries down slightly into the dough.
Roll up like a jelly roll. Cut into 1-inch slices and place into syrup. You can see how perfect these cranberries are. The slices do not have to be perfect as they will bake together. I also shaped them in my hand before I put them in the syrup to keep everything together.
Top with remaining cranberries, and nuts, and be sure to scrape any cinnamon-sugar from the bowl to add to the pan.
Ready for the oven! Bake until light golden brown.
Allow to cool slightly and sprinkle with confectioner sugar.
Top with ice cream or whipped topping if desired.
Frozen Cranberries added such color to this cobbler roll and held their shape after baking. They had just the right amount of tartness. It was a perfect balance of taste with the sweetness of the simple syrup in my recipe.
I made this recipe twice to get the amounts correct on some of the ingredients. I must admit that I could not quit sampling it every time I went through the kitchen.
If you like this cobbler roll, another one to try is the blueberry version.
