with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened. Gently press dough into a
4-inch square on heavy-duty plastic wrap, and cover with additional plastic

NOTES : A pandowdy is similar to a cobbler. The difference is that halfway
through baking, the crust is scored and pressed into the fruit, a process
called "dowdying."
