Apple Pandowdy

Yield 8 servings


  • 4 cups peeled, cored, and thinly sliced cooking apples
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons shortening
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • Additional sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine

How to Make It

  1. Arrange apples evenly in a lightly greased 10- x 6- x 2-inch baking dish. Combine 2 cups sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over apples. Pour water over apples, and set aside.

  2. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt; stir well. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Sprinkle milk evenly over flour mixture, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened.

  3. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead 8 to 10 times. Roll dough to a 10- x 6-inch rectangle, and place on top of apples. Cut slits in dough to allow steam to escape. Sprinkle with additional sugar, and dot with butter.

  4. Bake at 300° for 1 hour; remove from oven. Preheat broiling unit. Broil top crust 6 to 7 inches from heating element 3 minutes or until lightly browned. Spoon into individual serving bowls, and serve immediately.
