Pear Pandowdy

It's time for FALL BAKING!!

What do yo do with 4 ripe pears?  You make a pear pandowdy. What is a pandowdy you ask? It is a fruit dessert with a biscuit crust that is sometimes stirred into the fruit before serving.  I tossed this together and took it over to the in-laws house for dessert during the Buffalo Bills game. The cinnamon and pears cooking made the most wonderful smell that the boys couldn't wait to dive right in. The biscuit crust was very delicious I love the flavors. Happy Fall baking.

Pear Pandowdy

4 cups sliced peeled pears (about 4 pears)
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
3 Tablespoons butter
1 Tablespoon lemon juice

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
1/4 cup water
1 teaspoon sugar

Heat oven to 375F. Grease 8-inch square (1 1/2 quart) baking dis or 2-quart casserole. In medium saucepan, combine all filling ingredients. Cook over medium heat until mixture is hot, stirring occasionally.

In small bowl, combine flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder and salt; mix well. Using pastry blender or fork, cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture forms coarse crumbs. Add water, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour hot filling into greased baking dish. Drop topping by rounded tablespoonfuls onto hot filling. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon sugar. Bake for 30-40 minutes.
