Howdy Do NH Bakers, Do You Dowdy?
Not only is it apple season in NH, there are just way too many of them! Use this centuries old New England favorite to deliciously devour them in a low maintenance manner. Apple Pan Dowdy!
The ladies from America's Test Kitchen have a very nice segment above that is not as low maintenance as my introduction has promised. But you do get a good bit of history as well as a Dinah Shore impression.
When I think of Apple Pan Dowdy, I think of my Ma with a bushel of apples that have seen better days. She makes about 5 gallons worth of basic apple pie filling and puts it into every available pan or dish, and then covers that pan or dish with basic pie dough.
It bubbles over a bit and it's awesome.
After all, the word 'Dowdy' derives from a Middle English word 'Doude' which translates to 'inelegant'.
Don't overthink it, and, ENJOY!
