Cherry Dowdy

Cherry Dowdy

It may be called "dowdy," but we think this sweet-tart cherry take on the classic apple pandowdy is gorgeous! We love the deep-red fruit and the lovely biscuit-like topping. We love the individual servings. In fact, we love the whole dessert – and we think you will, too!
