- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Peel and core the apples, and slice them into 1/4-inch-thick slices. In a large bowl, combine the 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.
- In a medium bowl, combine the 1 1/4 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 ones, just until blended.
- Spoon the dough into free-form biscuits over the apples. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes until the topping is golden and the fruit is bubbly.
NOTE: Use a mix of different types of apples in apple desserts so that you can get different flavor notes and textures. For this fragrant pandowdy, I used half Golden Delicious and half Honey Crisps. Granny Smith, Pink Lady, Jonathan, and Northern Spy varieties also work well.
