  • 1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. 
    2. Melt the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium heat and cook until lightly browned. Remove from the heat. 
    3. In a large bowl, combine the apples, brown sugar, flour, maple syrup, vanilla, lemon juice, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, salt, and apple cider. Pour the mixture into the skillet with the butter and toss to evenly coat. 
    4. Place the pastry over the apples and press down gently to secure, tucking the sides of the pastry under the apples as best you can. Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with coarse sugar. Place the skillet on a baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Remove from the oven. Using a sharp knife, cut the pastry into large squares to create the "pandowdy". 
    4. Reduce the oven temp to 350. Return the skillet to the oven and continue baking for another 20 minutes, or until the sauce is bubbling up through the cracks of the pastry. If needed cover the top with foil to prevent burning. Spoon the heavy cream over top and then return to the oven for another 10 minutes to "set" the cream. The pastry will turn a dark golden brown. 
    5. Using a spoon, press the pastry down into warm juices, but don’t submerge. Serve warm with ice cream. ENJOY!
