Creeping Crust Cobbler

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by katie4998

This was given to me by my mom - she's made this for years, and it's really easy and really good! The name comes from the fact that the batter starts out underneath the fruit, and "creeps" up to surround the fruit as it's cooking! Great served with ice cream or whipped cream.

Very easy recipe with simple, inexpensive ingredients. I used Black Berries for this Cobbler & turned out amazing. This is one recipe I will use often for many years to come.
