I loved the sauce poured over the apples. I also did up the cinnamon a LOT as we love cinnamon. Husband felt topping was a tad flat and tasteless. Next time I am going to put cinnamon in the topping also to give it some spice. Then it will definitely be 5 stars.
I agree with previous comments re: ratio of brown sugar sauce to apples. When I saw what it looked like, I added more apples. Between the pectin in the apples and the fact that the sauce does include some flour, it worked great! Still really sweet, best with unsweetened whipping cream

We had a lot of granny smith apples in our backyard waiting to be used. My daughter and I were looking online for a good recipe. As soon as we saw this one, my daughter started singing "Shoo Fly Pie and Apple Pandowdy"! That did it! We had to try this recipe! And it didn't disappoint us. We listened to Dinah Shore as we prepared it. We especially liked the sauce made in a saucepan to pour over the apples. That gave it a whole new texture. Good with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
The recipe turned out fine. However, I did do my pastry part in a mini food-prep, and I did add more cinnamon that the recipe calls for, plus I put some sparkling sugar across the pastry just for appearance. If you haven't made one of these before, it is very sweet and sticky. Best served warm, and with ice cream. However, I am only giving it four stars because I felt the apples were smothered by the brown sugar sauce. I would cut back on the sauce by 1/4 or maybe even 1/3 and let the apples shine through a little more.
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
Made this tonight--absolutely wonderful!!!! Thanks so much for sharing.
