So if you were invited over for to my home for dinner and I said we were having Apple Pandowdy for dessert, (Pan-dow-dee) what would you say? Well to make it easy for you, I turned this into a multiple choice question!

  1. Oh that sound’s great Judy, I just love anything you bake!
  2. Just smile and say nothing.
  3. Burst out with “What the heck’s an Apple Pandowdy?

Going for # 2?

I don’t blame you. 🙂

Apple Pandowdy is a delicious combination of apple pie and apple cobbler, easy to make and a great skillet recipe. Apple Pandowdy is a quick and easy dessert.

Apple Pandowdy is a recipe I’ve been wanting to bake for some time now.  I just love the name, don’t you?  It’s a classic North American dessert, created in the 19th century, and is basically an apple pie, but doesn’t have a bottom crust.  The pastry or ‘dough’ is placed on top of the filling in pieces or dropped by spoonful’s, rather than rolling out a top crust.

 

So what is Apple Pan dowdy?  Wiki says Apple Pan dowdy (or Apple pandowdy) is a baked apple pastry traditionally associated with Pennsylvania Dutch cooking, with a recipe dating back to (according to Wiki) colonial times.

I expect in colonial times, they were baking over a wood fire, or in a wood-fired oven, and using cast iron pans as well.

The idea behind the Apple Pandowdy Dessert is that once the Apple Pie is baked, you stir the crust into the baked apples, to ‘dowdy’ it, so it ends up like an apple cobbler or maybe an apple pudding cake. Click To Tweet

When it’s still warm, press the pastry into the apples with a spoon, so that it soaks up those yummy apple juices!

When I was looking for an old fashioned apple pan dowdy recipe that I could bake, I found a couple of variations.   Martha Stewart’s version of apple pandowdy, which is more like an apple pie, with squares of piecrust on top, and then there is the Taste of Home version, and that’s the recipe I’ve re-created here that looks more like an apple cobbler.

I like this apple cobbler version of apple pandowdy for a variety of reasons:

  • It’s Perfect for an easy family dinner – takes less time than making pie crust
  • I love baking desserts in cast iron skillets and I really wanted to use these new mini cast iron skillets.  I think they are so adorable!
  • No special skills required!

Homemade Dutch Apple Pie With Streusel Topping and Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

Homemade Dutch Apple Pie With Streusel Topping and Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust

Homemade Dutch Apple Pie is the best!  And this Dutch Apple Pie With Streusel Topping  and Cinnamon Roll pie crust recipe is perfect for Beginner Bakers!  You build the pie in layers, a bottom crust, the apple filling, and the top is really like the top of an Apple Crisp, sweet and crunchy full of brown sugar and butter.  Yum! Yum!

 

When I bake apple desserts, I like to mix it up a bit, and will often use 2 or 3 different varieties of apples. I’ve included a really cool graphic here for you, that shows a sample of some of the wonderful varieties there are.

I went into the grocery store the other day to buy my apples, and I thought I was picking up a bag of McIntosh – but when I went to bake my pie, discovered they were Jersey Macs.  Bon Appetit says the three best apples to bake with are Honeycrisp, Pink Lady and Mutsu – but I think it’s all personal choice and besides its fun to experiment!

Now I like a tart taste to my apple pies, so I always include fresh lemon juice and a little lemon zest.  I also put in about half of the sugar that other recipes ask for.  The reason for this is that apples are very sweet on their own and you want that flavour to come through in your dutch apple pie.

 

 

When slicing up your apples, try to cut the slices fairly thin and pile them up!  I use 4 cups of peeled and sliced apples for only a 9” pie plate.  That’s because the apples will cook down and you will still end up with a glorious mile high apple pie!

For this Dutch Apple Pie Recipe I decided to make a cinnamon roll pie crust from scratch – like the Pillsbury cinnamon roll recipes you see on all the food blogs these days.Click To Tweet

My daughter made one the other day – I was so proud!  A lot of the recipes call for using Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and that’s great because they are so easy to use.  However I had a batch of fresh buttery pastry made (just whipped it up in my little food processor) so I was all set.   You can make some too, here is the recipe.  I call it my Insanely Easy Pie Crust.  Honestly it takes about 10 minutes.  Promise!

 

 How to Make Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust from Scratch

This is the fun part! I’ve set out the process step by step and it really is very easy. I think it’s much like the rugelach cookies I make during the holidays!
The whole cinnamon pastry thing is very nostalgic for me too. When we were kids, my Mom would take the leftover pastry from her pie baking and make us a delicious cinnamon roll just for us. And this pie crust tastes just as good!

You will need enough pie crust for a two crust pie. There will be a bit left over, but I usually just use it up in a separate cinnamon roll treat!

  • Roll out the dough, and cut it into a rectangle.
  • Brush with melted butter, and sprinkle with a tablespoon of brown sugar and ½ teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
  • Starting at the long edge, roll the pastry, keeping it fairly tight. I needed two long rolls to fill my deep dish pie plate – I love this pie plate! It’s from Good Cooks, (you can see it when you click the link!) and it can stand up to anything I throw at it! I have a lovely red one at the trailer, and this white one, here in our small space in the city.
  • Using a pastry cutter, slice the rolls into small pieces as show here and place them on a sheet of parchment paper. I follow the guide on my pastry sheet. (another link)
  • Then place a sheet of parchment paper on top and pressing your rolling pin down firmly, roll it out. The little pieces will stick together. Peel off the top layer and quickly flip the pie crust into your well greased pie plate.
  • Don’t worry if a few pieces don’t stick. Just put them in the pie plate and use your fingers to press them into place.
  • Flute the edges, and brush the cinnamon roll pie crust with melted butter.
  • Wrap it up in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Note: you can see the the finished pie crust is darker than normal and that’s due to the cinnamon mixed throughout!

Ingredients
Cinnamon Roll Pie Crust
  • Pastry for a two-crust pie
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 9 " pie plate
Dutch Apple Pie
  • 4 cups of peeled cored & sliced apples
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon zest
  • 2 tbsp. corn starch
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
Instructions
Pie crust
    Roll out the pastry in a rectangle
    1. spread one side with 1/4 c brown sugar
    2. spring 1 tsp of cinnamon on top of the brown sugar
    3. Carefully roll the pastry along the long side and quite tightly
    4. slice evenly - about 3/4" (don't measure!) and place each slice in the bottom of a 9" pie plate, pressing them in as you go to fill the sides and bottom.
    5. Repeat with the second pie crust - you may not need all of it.
    Dutch Apple Pie
      Mix the sliced apples, white sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, corn start in a large bowl, making sure the apples are well covered, then set aside.
      1. In a separate bowl mix the brown sugar, flour, and butter - I use a pastry blender to evenly mix the butter.
      2. Build the pie by placing the apple mixture in the bottom of the pie crust, pile it high in the centre, leaving room around the edges.
      3. Spoon the brown sugar mixture all over it, again piling it high. The apples will cook down, so don't worry if it looks like too much topping.
      4. Bake at 350F for 50 minutes or until golden and you can see the apples bubbling.
      Recipe Notes

      Let the pie cool, and serve with your favorite ice cream or freshly whipped cream. Enjoy! Note: prep time includes making pie crust and peeling apples.

      Easy Cinnamon Roll Apple Cobbler

       Cinnamon Swirl Apple Cobbler.

      This classic apple crisp recipe gets all dressed up with a delicious cinnamon swirl pie crust topping! So easy to make and a perfect way to use leftover pie crust. Like Cinnamon Pastry met Apple Crisp and fell in love.

       

      I always like to have dessert on hand when I have guests over this past week when I was cooking our turkey dinner to celebrate Christmas holidays we actually had our turkey dinner on boxing day I wanted to make a delicious but very easy dessert recipe and typically when it’s frightfully cold outside I turn to comfort food.

      This classic apple crisp recipe gets all dressed up with a delicious cinnamon swirl pie crust topping! So easy to make and a perfect way to use leftover pie crust. Like Cinnamon Pastry met Apple Crisp and fell in love.

      One of my favorite recipes to make is apple crisp. I don’t even look at a recipe anymore as I’m able to just make it up as I go along! Typically I use a traditional apple crisp topping and that’s brown sugar flour and lots and lots of melted butter but I had some leftover pie crust in the freezer that I wanted to use.

       

      I’ve been seeing on Facebook and social media lots of posts about the cinnamon pastry pie crust that folks are using with their apple pies .

      So what I’ve come up with is Cinnamon Swirl Apple Cobbler – like an apple crisp that has a cinnamon swirl pastry topping and oh my gosh it is so yummy.

      Full of apples and cinnamon and butter and brown sugar it’s just too good and the smell of it baking is to die for.

      This classic apple crisp recipe gets all dressed up with a delicious cinnamon swirl pie crust topping! So easy to make and a perfect way to use leftover pie crust. Like Cinnamon Pastry met Apple Crisp and fell in love.

      To get started grease your pan really well.   I use glass baking pans as I like the way they cook my desserts.   Prepare your apples the same way you would for a traditional apple crisp.  So in this case I had McIntosh apples on hand and they were little on the small side so I used ten because I love to pile the apples up high in the pan.  They always shrink down when they cook. (you can see a little tip about how to keep your apple pie filling from shrinking away from your pie crust if you go to this link I’ve instructed my students on this for many years and it’s a great tip.)

      Once you have your apples peeled and cored, and I must buy an apple peeler they are so much fun and so easy to peel apples with!  That’s the biggest job about making any baked apple dessert right? But in this case I used my Apple slicer and just peeled the apples.

      So I add a cup of white sugar, a teaspoon of cinnamon and a quarter cup of cornstarch or flour (which ever you have on hand is fine) and the purpose of this is just add a bit of thickening so that your apples and don’t run all over the place!  We want a nice thick serving of cinnamon swirl apple cobbler.  I renamed it to a cobbler because now that we don’t have the crispy crunchy topping, I don’t really feel that we can call it an apple crisp.

       

      So now we have the fun part. My pastry has thawed and I’m going to roll it out into a large rectangle almost the size of a pie crust or a pie shell that you would need, so I would say around 12 in  You can see I’ve use my pastry mat and if you don’t have a pastry mat please do yourself a favor and get one they’re so helpful when rolling out pie crust.

      I’ve squared off with the pastry dough with my pastry cutter. Brush the pastry with a quarter cup of melted butter.  You really want to brush the pastry well because the melted butter will hold the brown sugar and cinnamon to it and that’s what you need for rolling.    Mix a half a cup of brown sugar and another teaspoon of cinnamon and spread all that lovely brown sugar and cinnamon on top of your pastry.  You are now ready to roll it up and to a nice tight roll.

      Cinnamon Swirl Apple Cobbler takes a classic apple crisp recipe and gets all dressed up with a delicious cinnamon swirl pie crust topping! So easy to make and a perfect way to use leftover pie crust. Like Cinnamon Pastry met Apple Crisp and fell in love.

      Using a pastry slicer or a pizza cutter slice the roll into individual slices that are about  a quarter inch thick and lay the slices on your pastry mat.    I just flatten them with my fingers, I think that makes it easier for us to handle them, just make sure your pastry mat is well flowered so that these lovely little cinnamon swirls don’t stick to the mat.  Cover your apples with these cinnamon swirl pieces, and make sure it’s all tight and fully covered.  Don’t worry about the apples not having a chance to breathe cause there’s lots of little nooks and crannies in the top.  You can see that so the steam will be able to get out .

       

      I brush the top with an egg yolk mixture because that helps the pastry to achieve that beautiful Golden Glow that we want. And then I put it in a preheated 350-degree Fahrenheit oven and bake for 35 to 45 minutes.  Now I have a fast oven and so I typically put it in for the  lesser time and that way I know I’ll be safe.  If I need to add 5 or 10 minutes at the end, I’m ok to do so.

      While your Cinnamon Swirl Apple Cobbler is baking, you can mix up some glaze using icing sugar and water.  For this recipe,  let’s use a cup of icing sugar or powdered sugar and put it that in a small bowl.  Add one to two tablespoons of water, and mix well.  It takes very little water to make a nice thick icing sugar glaze.   Once you make that up put it aside until your Cinnamon Swirl Apple Cobbler is baked and let it cooled on a cooling rack or a large cutting board for about 15 to 20 minutes.   Then you can drizzle that lovely icing sugar glaze all over it and it has the look of a cinnamon buns!

      So that’s it.  Pretty easy and it was so delicious!  We had our boys for dinner that night and they just ate it all up with big scoops of vanilla ice cream!  Of course we got to have leftovers 🙂 that’s the best part of cooking a big dinner!

      I hope you enjoyed this recipe and look forward to seeing you on the blog.

      Apple Pie Muffin Recipe | A Great Breakfast Choice!

      Apple Pie Muffin Recipe | A Great Breakfast Choice!

      Apple Pie Muffin Recipe

      We all love easy muffin recipes and this is a great one using freshly chopped apples!  I like to use Granny Smith apples, like the ones shown here – but any apple that is good for baking will do.

      freshly baked apple muffins on a tea towel with granny smith apples and cinnamon sticks

      I love this apple pie muffin recipe as a healthy choice that I can grab and go – on my way to work, the golf course, or out to walk the dogs!

       

      They are so full of flavor and of course a little brown sugar never hurt anyone, am I right?

      apple-pie-muffins-feature

      What’s the secret to light fluffy muffins? The trick to making muffins that are light in texture and rise beautifully is less is more.  What I mean by that is muffin batter requires very little mixing.  Just fold the ingredients until everything is moistened, but don’t overmix.  It took me a while to learn this!  I would beat up the batter until it was very smooth, and then end up with very tough and chewy muffins.  Not so good!

      apple-pie-muffins-mixing-bowl

       

      Drop the muffin batter by spoonfuls into your greased muffin tin. In a pinch you could make this apple pie muffin recipe with prepared apple pie filling, but this recipe only takes one really large apple so chopping it up takes no time at all.

      This recipes come from my Grandma’s Recipe Book.  She kept all kinds of handwritten recipes, on cards, backs of envelopes, anything at all really.  See the recipe in the image above?  My Grandma wrote that.  And even though I have most of her recipes electronically, nothing will make me get rid of this special treasure!

      A freshly baked batch of homemade muffins makes a wonderful gift for a special friend and a great way to enjoy Saturday coffee shop n the deck with your neighbors.

      Enjoy.

      Instructions:

      Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and melted butter well

      Stir in the apples and chopped walnuts and set aside

      In food processor add dry ingredients, baking powder, flour, white sugar, salt, and pulse until blended

      Cut softened cream cheese and butter into chunks and add to food processor and pulse until blended. The mixture will stick together if pressed in your hand.

      Put the mixture from the food processor into a large bowl.  Make a well in the centre and add the cream, vanilla, and egg.  Break the egg yolk and blend slowly, just until everything is moistened.  Like when you are making muffins.

      Preheat the oven to 375 and grease and 8 X 8 square pan.

      Press the cake mixture into the plan

      Add small chunks of cream cheese around the top – I push them in slightly with my finger!

      Spoon on the apple and brown sugar topping (this will sink into the cake as it bakes)

      Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

      Even though the Equinox has come and gone, we have plenty of the spectacular fall season ahead and nothing says fall more than apples and the harvest.  So I really hope you love this Harvest Apple Galette.

      A Galette is French for Tart, and the premise is basically the same.  How long does it take to bake a galette?  About the same time as a pie, but the difference is that when baking a galette you don’t need to fuss with fluting the pastry edges, and instead of a pie plate, you use a cookie sheet.

      I’ve made galettes before – there is a Pear and Walnut Galette on the blog. It’s so easy, it will become your go to for pie baking.

      For the easiest pie crust recipe, check out my Insanely Easy Pie Crust recipe on the blog…

      RECIPE: one pie crust rolled out (about 14 – 16″)

      TIP: roll out the pie crust on parchment paper and transfer it to the cookie sheet before you build your galette.

      Ingredients: (see the recipe card below)

      8 small apples (I used Paula Red) peeled & cored

      white sugar

      cinnamon

      fresh lemon juice

      fresh lemon zest

      cornstarch

      Directions:

      Following the recipe below, gather all of the ingredients and mix together and place in the middle of the pie crust

      Next and in a separate bowl, mix 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup flour and 1/4 cup softened unsalted butter until the butter is completely blended.

      Sprinkle this mixture on top of the apple mixture.

      Wrap the pie crust around the apples, folding as you go. See how easy it is? Bake at 350F/180C for 55 minutes on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Let cool, drizzle with caramel sauce and dig in!!!

       

       

      Harvest Apple Galette is a quick and easy dessert!

       

      I’ll bet that’s the easiest Harvest Apple Galette you’ve ever made!
