    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.

      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!

      I don't know what happened to my previous review...but let's try this again. This was very tasty. However my crust didn't creep over the fruit only an inch or two...which was a bit of a disappointment. The crust is very good and nicely sweet but I think I would add some sugar and maybe some cinnamon to the fruit next time. I added fresh sliced apples and they needed something. I was concerned about that when I put the recipe together but wanted to follow the recipe exactly. Mine wasn't very brown on top perhaps my granddaughter didn't leave it in the oven long enough. That may explain the lack of creeping also. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
