Blueberry Pandowdy Nutrition InfoChef’s Tips:

This dessert is extra delicious with a small dollop of whipped cream.

You can also bake the pandowdy at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. If you sub in frozen blueberries, the pandowdy will take about 35 minutes to bake.

Did You Know?

The pandowdy is a great American dessert from the 1800s. There is some question as to its exact origins, but the basic idea behind its creation is that a pie is given a rather “dowdy” look by being sprinkled with pieces of crust, rather than covered completely by a whole piece of pie crust.

Some juices have more added sugar than juice! Be sure to pick out a 100% fruit juice to use in this recipe.

Corn starch helps the ingredients meld into a tasty filling.
