Apple Pan Dowdy

This recipe is from "Good Things to Cook and How to Cook Them with your Westinghouse Electric Range," a 1940 cookbook put out by the Westinghouse Electric & Manufacturing Co. of Mansfield, Ohio. We think that it qualifies for the Heirloom Recipe Award.
cup corn syrup
tsp. ground cloves
2 T cinnamon
tsp. allspice
Few gratings of nutmeg
Tart, juicy apples
2 T butter

Preheat oven to 350. Mix together corn syrup and spices. Peel and slice enough apples to fill a 3-quart baking dish almost full. Dot apples with butter, then pour over them the spice and corn syrup mixture. Cover with plain pastry, rolled rather thick.

Bake for 50-60 minutes. Remove from oven, cut the baked pastry in 2 inch squares and poke down among the spiced apples. Let stand until partially cooled before serving. Serve with thick, yellow cream. Serves 6-8.
