This dessert is perfect for the fall. I love apple desserts because they are a great way to get to know seasonal apple varieties. I really enjoy going to farmers’ markets and asking vendors which apples they like to use in different desserts. Use a mix of different types of apples in apple desserts so that you can get different flavor notes and different textures. For this fragrant pandowdy, I used half Golden Delicious and half Honey Crisps. Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Jonathan, or Northern Spy varieties also work well here.

3 pounds firm baking apples
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup stevia
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon stevia
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 egg
1 tablespoon melted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup fat-free milk

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel and core apples, and slice into 1/4-inch thick slices. In a large bowl, combine apple slices, lemon juice, brown sugar, 1/4 cup stevia, 1/4 cup flour, and cinnamon. Toss well. Transfer to a 2 1/2-quart baking pan.

2. In a medium bowl, combine 11/4 cups flour with the sugar, stevia, baking powder, and salt. Make a well in the center and add the egg, butter, vanilla, and milk. Quickly incorporate the liquid ingredients into the dry, just until blended.

3. Spoon the dough into free-form biscuits over the apples. Bake for 35-40 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbly.
