With fall here I decided to share my apple dumpling recipe.
This brings back so many memories. I can close my eyes and remember my mom letting us help roll out the pie crust and whatever wasn’t used she would sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on and bake for us to snack on while the dumplings were cooking.
To this day I can’t make pie crust like her so I cheat and use pillsbury pie crust
1 package Pie Crust (or if you can make a pie crust you will need 2)
4 apples, cored and peeled
1 stick butter
1 cup sugar
add to sugar
2-3 tsp cinnamon (you can use less cinnamon if you prefer)
Cut each pie dough in half and place an apple in the center. Add a pat of butter in core of apple and place 1 tablespoon cinnamon sugar mixture in core of apple. Wrap pie dough around apple.
Place in glass baking dish. Melt remaining butter and add remaining cinnamon sugar mixture to butter.
Pour on top of dumplings. Bake at 350 until done (about 45 minutes)
They are done when pie crust is a golden brown and apples are fork tender
Let cool a little and serve with vanilla ice cream
