Crazy Crust Fruit

Crazy Crust Pie recipe is a quick and easy way to cook a fuss-free crust from a batter – no rolling or chilling pie dough required. It takes 5 minutes to prepare this homemade hybrid of a cake crossed with a pie, then as it bakes in the oven, it forms a crust around the fruit.

When you crave the flavor of a classic fruit-filled dessert but don’t feel like fussing or blind baking a pie crust, then this simple recipe is your shortcut solution!

In fact, there’s no pie dough at all in this retro recipe; rather an easy to make batter is formed from flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, butter, vanilla, half and half, and an egg, then poured into a pie dish followed by canned fruit pie filling.

As it bakes, a cake version of a crust is created around the edges while the fruit in the middle becomes warm and fragrant.
