Reviews for Apple Pandowdy
"Tried this last night; turned-out great! Good recipe for an occasional cook. A strange song came to me as I was baking, something about "shoo-fly pie and apple pandowdy," 'wonder where that came from?"
"Yum! this is the Old style pandowdy just like my Mom used to make! I made it today for my Dad's birthday and it turned out Perfect! Tastes fantastic! So easy to make too!"
"This is one of the best cobblers I have tasted. The sauce you prepare on top of stove and thicken really adds a lot to this dish and the topping browns so nicely. Yum"
