1 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
teaspoons baking powder
1 can (21 ounces) fruit filling of choice
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9-by-13-inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until well combined. Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition; mix in vanilla.
Into a separate bowl sift the flour, salt and baking powder. Add to butter mixture and beat well.
Measure and set aside 1 cup of dough for topping. Spread remaining dough into prepared pan. Spread the pie filling over the dough to within 1 inch from edge of pan. Drop the reserved dough by teaspoonfuls over the filling in an irregular design. Bake 45-55 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
Immediately dust with powdered sugar; when cooled, dust again.
Serves 18 to 21.
