Description

These aren’t traditional apple dumplings, more like mini apple pies. Grandma Stella poured a warm dumpling sauce over them. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Ingredients

  • FOR THE APPLE FILLING:
  • 4 whole Golden Delicious Apples, Cored And Chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Fresh Lemon Juice, Plus A Few Tablespoons For The Apples To Prevent Browning
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • ¼ cups Granulated Sugar
  • ¼ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • 1 pinch Salt
  • FOR THE DOUGH:
  • 2 whole Pie Crusts, Your Favorite Recipe
  • Milk And Granulated Sugar For Brushing Dough
  • FOR THE DUMPLING SAUCE:
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • ¼ cups Brown Sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon Flour
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 dash Nutmeg
  • 1 cup Reserved Liquid From Apple Filling (or Water)
  • ¼ cups Butter

Preparation

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Peel, core and chop apples. Place apple pieces in a bowl of cold water with a couple tablespoons of lemon juice to prevent browning while cutting other apples.

Drain water off apples and mix apple filling ingredients in a bowl.

Roll pie crusts thinly. Divide each crust in 4. Place about ½ cup apple filling on each quartered dough piece. Wrap up apple filling, sealing edges as best you can. Place on a parchment or baking mat-lined sheet pan. Brush with milk and sprinkle with granulated sugar if desired. Reserve apple filling juices for dumpling sauce.

Bake dumplings at 350ºF for about 45 minutes, until apples are tender when pierced with a knife.

For the dumpling sauce, place sugar, brown sugar, flour, salt, and nutmeg in a saucepan and whisk to combine. Add reserved apple filling liquid and butter. Heat to melt butter, then cook over medium heat, simmering gently and stirring constantly until sauce thickens slightly, about 5 minutes.

Spoon warm sauce over warm dumplings and serve with vanilla ice cream.

These little bundles of apple goodness were amazing and so simple!! Everyone in my Bible study group loved them. The sauce was so good, I used the remainder of it to pour over vanilla ice cream. What a treat!
