What joy the gospel gives me. I can approach the throne of God with confidence, not because I've done a good job at my spiritual duties, but because I'm clothed in the righteousness of Jesus Christ. ~ C.J. Mahaney

Apple Pandowdy


We came home from Sky Top Orchard with a peck of apples.  One peck of apples is a lot of apples!  We've munched a few right out of the bags.  And I have plans to cook up a big pot of apple butter with some of them.

For a quick delicious dessert, it doesn't get much better than this Apple Pandowdy.  It's sort of like an apple pie, but easier to make, because the biscuit-like topping is mixed and spread over the apples in the pan.

Apple Pandowdy...doesn't it sound just like a treat Grandma would have made?


Peel four large apples.  I put Holly on that.


Slice the apples and top with the brown sugar and cinnamon.


Mix up the dough and lay it on top of the apples.


Bake 45 minutes until golden brown.


Apple Pandowdy

  • 4 large apples
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter
  • 2/3 cup milk
Peel, core, and slice apples into bottom of greased 8X8-inch baking pan.  Sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.  Dot with the 2 T butter.  Sift flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.  Cut in the 6 T butter.  Add milk to make soft dough.  Take out small pieces of dough and press between the palms of your hands.  Lay on top of apples, pressing dough together to form one big piece.  (It sounds dumb, but it works.)  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Cut into squares and turn upside-down to serve.  Top with whipped cream or ice cream.  Serves 8.


Have a beautiful week!
