My Mom's Krazy Krust Pie ~ the best comfort food!

Ever crave something a little (ok, maybe a lot) decadent for a sweet breakfast treat? The kids & I were wanting something sweet one morning, so I whipped up this family favorite.  Usually, it's a dessert, but guess what? With a glass of milk, it makes a fine breakfast, too!

It is one of the easiest recipes to make, seriously! Even if you don't do alot of baking, this recipe is a breeze to prepare.

It's found in our family cookbook, which was made by my Mom.  She has made this since she was a teenager, and I have done so as well! We like it best made with cherry pie filling, but you can make it with any fruit you'd like - peaches, blueberries, strawberries...

There are only 5 ingredients: 1 c. self rising flour, 1 c. sugar, 1 c. milk - mix together.

 1 stick margarine - melt in a casserole/baking dish in the oven. 

this is my favorite casserole dish - I painted it years ago at a pottery place in Winder, GA.  Those little dragonflies are stamped on the inside -- love!
 Pour flour mixture into center of the melted margarine slowly. 

Spoon your choice of fresh or canned drained fruit, or canned fruit pie filling into the center.  DO NOT STIR!! 

see how the butter is mixed through the flour mixture, without even stirring! You don't want to mess up the buttery goodness to come, so ignore the temptation to stir all of this together!! I promise it will make something heavenly good on it's own!

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.  Serve warm ~ SO good!!

Perfection! See the crunchy edges, and the lighter, buttery insides? Combined with the sweet & tart cherries this is one of my favorite comfort foods!
Have you blogged about one of your favorite comfort food recipes? Please leave me the link - I love to find new recipes!! And if you make this, let me know what you think! It's a family recipe that at least 3 generations of our family adore!
