Pecan Pie Bubble Up

I am obsessed with this dish!  I need this to be made at least once a week for the foreseeable future.  I can finish this in two days by myself, so that's totally do-able.  I mean, in theory I could finish it in two days.  I wouldn't know that firsthand or anything.  Totally wouldn't.

There's something about baking with pecans that really let me knowthe holidays are here.  It's probably because I associate pecan pie with Thanksgiving.  Pecan pie is my favorite ever!  So when I saw this recipe, I gasped and knew I had to make it.  In case you missed my previous bubble up recipes (bubble up enchiladas or bubble up pizza) I'll just let you know that I love these types of recipes.  Not only are they quick but they're also easy and delicious.  I like that they're able to be customized so that you can please most, if not all, of your family members.  This is perfect for a quick weeknight meal, or for making sure that you can sleep in on the weekends for another 30 minutes.  Again, this is not from personal knowledge.  I'm just sayin'.

This pecan pie bubble up did not disappoint and it will definitely join the others in the "Win" category.  The pecans were mixed with corn syrup and cinnamon buns and I was in heaven.  I recommend bringing this to any event between now and Christmas if you want to be the star.  Heck, I even promote bringing this over in the New Year because really, who's gonna stop you?  You are the boss of you.
