Creeping Crust Cobbler

"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."

    Can you use fresh apples and do you need to cook them first

    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.

    By far the easiest and tastiest crust recipe I've made. I used canned peaches, adding my ingredients(pure vanilla extract, pure orange extract, pure lemon extract, brown sugar, white sugar, butter, and cinnamon) and cooking them until "pie ready." The crust was simply amazing! I loved the idea of it starting on the bottom and rising to the top. The pie was done in about 35 minutes. This crust is a keeper! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!
