 Mom’s Apple Crisp:  

One of my favorite recipes, this easy apple dessert is a classic.  Who doesn’t love a big bowl full of apple crisp, still warm from the oven!  I often make it in these little ramekin style dishes, but you can still make this recipe in a 9 x 9 square pan.   Because we want lots of leftovers, right?

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

Do you have a cast iron skillet?  Then this will be your Go To recipe.  A Pandowdy is similar to an Apple Cobbler and is the way they used to make apple pies, way back when, before we started making pie crust.  The light biscuit dough gets dropped on top of the apples by spoonfuls, and of course everything bakes together and gets all happy and cozy.
