Now, Auntie used a deep iron skillet to make this, but I've switched to a polish pottery baking dish. I haven't noticed a difference in taste, it's still yummy comfort food!
Aunt Letha's Creeping Crust Cobbler1 stick (1/2 cup) butter or margarine
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup milk
1 quart OR 2 cans of fruit, drained (your choice)
Melt butter in skillet (I melted it in a glass measuring cup in the microwave, and then poured it into the baking dish).
Mix dry ingredients together in a mixing bowl with a wire wisk.
Add the milk to the dry ingredients (p.s. I use skim milk) and mix.
Pour batter over butter - do NOT stir!
Carefully place the drained fruit over the batter (p.p.s. I use light fruit), but do not mix! (I put a light sprinkle of cinnamon on top.)
Bake at 400° F for 40-45 minutes. The crust will "creep" over the fruit, hence the name and will be a deep golden brown.
Makes 8 servings.
You can use almost any fruit, even thawed frozen fruit!
Mmmm...mine's ready! Get your cobbler in the oven!
