In a mixing bowl cream your eggs and sugar. Whisk in your remaining four ingredients until combined. This will be the filling. 
For the topping, in a separate mixing bowl combine the dry ingredients. Slowly whisk in the buttermilk, melted butter and vanilla. 

In a 9”x 13” Pan, pour in the Pecan filling. Make sure the filling is evenly distributed. Place the bowl with the topping over the filling mix. Slowly drizzle the topping onto the filling. You want to do this in a back and forth motion to make sure the whole pan is covered. Pour your pecans over the topping evenly. Don’t fill more that 3/4 full, the cobbler will rise when baked. Place the pan into a preheated 300 degree oven. Set the timer for 40 minutes. When checking, if the cobbler still has wiggle to it, you will need to cook in additional 5 minute intervals. bake for 60 minutes. Check the cobbler with a toothpick or knife. If batter is not fully cooked return to oven and continue cooking. Check cobbler at 10 minute intervals.
