Apple Dumplings

What better than apple pie?  Apple Dumplings!  These are so easy to make, and are so delicious.  I stole this recipe from my sister who made these for my parents back home.  I never tasted hers, but I’m pretty sure these are better 😉

Apple Dumplings

Apple pie one of my favorite fall desserts.  These apple dumplings reminded me of a ball of apple pie.  This treat is perfect to make after a fun day of apple picking in the crisp autumn air.  Granny smith apples are the preferred apple in this dessert because they give a nice sweet and sour balance.

Here’s what you’re going to need:

  • 1/2 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 1 rolled refrigerated pie crust for every apple

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Peel and core out the apples, but do not cut them!
  3. In small saucepan, combine water, white sugar, vanilla, 1 tbsp butter, and nutmeg over high heat.  Bring to a boil for one minute and set aside.
  4. Combine brown sugar, cinnamon, and the 2nd tbsp of butter in a small bowl.  Mix well!
  5. Unroll the pie crust and cut into quarters.  Stuff each apple cavity with an equal amount of brown sugar mixture, and place on a pastry quarter.  Fold up around the apples and pinch them together.  Feel free to be a little crafty when it comes to sealing the ends of the crusts together!
  6. Place apples on a cookie sheet and drizzle the bubbling sugar mixture over the crust.  I used a brush to apply the mixture on the crust to ensure it was applied evenly all over.
  7. Bake for about 45-50 minutes or until the crusts are golden brown.  After you take them out, brush some of the sugar drizzle in the pan over the crusts.
  8. Let it cool off a bit, cut them open, and enjoy!
