20 Down-Home Ozark Country Recipes
War Eagle Bean Palace Pecan Cobbler
Using the beloved pecan pie as a guide, cooks for the restaurant at the top of War Eagle Mill near Rogers, Arkansas, fashioned this cobbler adding oat flour for a different flavor in the crust. This buttery crust actually layers in the middle of the syrupy filling, an escape from the usual cobbler crowned with topping. A generous measure of pecans adds crunch.
Another rich Ozark dessert: Warm Banana Cake with Butterscotch-Caramel Sauce, from James at the Mill restaurant in Johnson, Arkansas. The dessert is based on a recipe from restaurant owner Miles James' Ozark grandmother.
