Blackberry Pandowdy

Pandowdy — a spoon pie, with fruit on the bottom and a rolled crust on top, which is broken up to allow the juices to come through.

My favorite thing. A pie. Simple. Delicious. This one is called a Pandowdy. Mine is a modified version. I like a bottom crust also. It is completely up to you.

Blackberry Pandowdy
2 bags frozen blackberries
1/3 cup flour
1 cup sugar
cream for brushing
sugar for sprinkling

Pie crust (For a double crust pie, I make the 8 or 9 inch One-Crust plus the 8 or 9 inch Two -Crust because I like to work with lots of dough!)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Roll out a little over half of the dough as described in the pie crust recipe and place in the pie plate. Add the flour and sugar to the frozen blackberries. Toss gently to coat. Pour berry mixture over dough in pie plate. Roll the top crust out as described in the pie crust recipe and place over the berries. Crimp the edges to seal. Brush the top with cream (I usually use evaporated milk or plain milk...whatever I have on hand). Sprinkle top with sugar.

Bake until crust is set and beginning brown, about 45 minutes. Remove from the oven; gently push some of the crust into the filling using a spoon. Bake until crust is golden brown and crisp and juices are bubbling, 25 to 35 minutes more.

Now, eat and enjoy! Have a second piece. Kidding!!

    I am looking for a Foley Pastry frame like the one in your blog in 2006. Mine is old and needs to be replaced. Can you please tell me where you bought yours? Thank you!

    If you look at this post Pie Crusts 101, you will see a link under "The Tools" for the pastry frame.

    LeAnn, Or click on the widget at the top of the page from amazon called "The Pie Maker..." and there it is!

    Beautiful dessert, I've never had a pie like this before :).

    I am looking for the cloth part of the Foley pastry frame. Mine is old and needs to be replaced.
    The link on the website here goes to Amazon.com but it indicates the items is unavailable.
    I also tried to Google the company but nothing is coming up.
    Do you have any other leads on where I could get this item?

    Look at the first item in my sidebar on the left. The pastry frame link is in there! And I think I fixed the link in the other post. (was it the Piecrust 101 link?)

    Man that looks good. I'll bet it goes down real nice with a scoop of vaniolla ice cream. Now I am going to have to make it.

    yummy! Welcome to the foodie blog roll. We have mulberrie trees, do you think I could substitute and make your recipe with mulberries instead of the blackberries?

    Thanks for putting my blog on the foodie blog roll!

    Yes, I think mulberries would be great! One time I was making a blackberry pie and didn't have enough blackberries, but I did have some frozen blueberries. So, I added them to the blackberries and it turned out sooooooo good. Here is a link to that recipe: Blackberry Blueberry Crumb Pie

    I love the feature on your blog where you can see your cookbook collection...very great! Then, you featured my all-time favorite dessert today; "blackberry-anything"! but especially cobbler or something with a crust. We have similar interests! Please visit my blog on Friday...I do an "Old Cookbook Review" every Friday from my stash of cookbooks.

    I know this is an older post, but I am listing a Vintage Foley Pastry Frame on Ebay. This is the one that was patented in 1939. It looks like it's probably from the 50s or 60s though, and is in NEW condition. (The printed price on the label says $1.98!). Here's the link to my Ebay auction:

    @John...that is EXACTLY like mine!!! I have used mine for years and love it. My family calls it the 'happy thing'!
