Zucchini Cobbler

Zucchini Cobbler

This tastes a lot like apple cobbler and is a great way to use some of the zucchini from the garden.  

12 cups zucchini (seeded, peeled and sliced)
1 cup lemon juice
1 1/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
3/4 tsp nutmeg

4 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups cold butter
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup pecans, crushed (optional)

In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, cook zucchini and lemon juice for +/-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender.  Add remaining filling ingredients; cook for five minutes.  Set aside.

Combine flour and sugar; cut in butter.  Stir 3/4 cup into zucchini mixture.  Press half of the curst mixture into a greased 9×13 baking dish.  Spread zucchini mixture over crust.  In remaining crust mixture, stir in pecans (optional) and sprinkle over zucchini mixture.  Dust with cinnamon.

Bake at 375° for 40-45 minutes or until golden brown and bubbly.
