Apple pan dowdy…it’s just fun to say….and EAT! 🙂
4 lg apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 cup cold butter, cut into small chunks
1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp cold water
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Prep the apples and put them in the bottom of a 9 x 9 baking dish.
In a small bowl, combine the 1/2 cup of sugar and spices and pour the mixture onto the apples, tossing until they are coated.
To make the dough, stir together the flour, sugar, and salt in a mixing bowl. Then blend the butter into the flour mixture using a hand pastry blender (or two forks) until the mixture is coarse like oatmeal.
Stir dough with a fork to bring it together. Form the dough into a ball and roll it out on a floured surface to 1/4 inch thickness. With a knife, cut long strips, then triangles out of the strips, and place the dough pieces over the apples. The pan dowdy baked for 45 minutes until the top was browned.
Did I change anything? I think next time I will sprinkle a little cinnamon and sugar on top. Also, you REALLY need some vanilla ice cream to go with this. It was missed as we were eating ours without it.
What did the family think? This will make your house smell terrific and your family’s tummy very happy.
