This recipe taught me what a “pandowdy” is. Very much like a cobbler or a pie, it is fruit on the bottom with a thick later of biscuit “crust” over the top, rolling with the fruit it tops. The image from the cover of the book is in fact a pandowdy.
It was very easy to make, much easier than a pie because the crust that overlays the top was simpler than a pie crust. Which is a good thing because I was in a great hurry! So much that I forgot to take half the pictures. 😛
It was very yummy with some ice cream. A great alternative to apple pie if you’re not up for dealing with the complications of crust, pandowdies are much simpler and easier.
