It's called Creeping Crust because the CRUST WILL RISE TO THE TOP AND CREEP OVER THE FRUIT. My family loves cobblers and this recipes adapts to any fruit and is the best I've made or eatten. Serve warm or cold and don't forget the ice cream.

  2. Mix FLOUR, SUGAR, BAKING POWDER together in bowl.
  3. Add MILK to flour mixture and GENTLY STIR BY HAND until all flour is wet. DO NOT OVER MIX DOUGH - overmixing makes the crust tough.

  5. Place FRUIT over dough. - You can always use more or less fruit.

This has been a favorite cobbler for years. Today I used one fresh peach, two plums, and about a cup of fresh blackberries. Its so easy, and so good, there's no reason not to make it. I make a gluten-free version with Pamela's baking mix that's also very good. Just use Pamela's in place of flour, you may have to adjust the flour liquid ratio. The batter should not be too thick or the crust won't creep!

This ranks 4 starts for being a very easy dessert to make. I used fresh peaches and we enjoyed it, and I'll use this recipe again with different fruit. I had to bake it about 15-20 longer than indicated in recipe.

Great Recipe! I added cinnamon and a pinch of nutmeg to my peaches.
