I made this for a group "get together" but since I hadn't made it before I also took some decadent brownies. The cobbler bars were gone in a big hurry with rave reviews from everyone. Many people said they liked the fact that it was not overly sweet. The only change I made in the recipe was to use regular chopped pecans which I toasted before stirring them into the batter, rather than the glazed pecans. I don't even think the nuts are a necessity to the wonderful taste of the recipe.
