- 5-10 medium apples
- 2 packages (4 pieces) of pie dough
- 1 stick of butter
- 3 cups of water
- 2 cups of white sugar
- 3/4 cup of brown sugar
Roll the dough out to 1/8" thick. Lay an apple in the middle with a sliver of butter on top or in the center of the apple.
Then fold the dough over the apple and pinch it with a little bit of water to wet your fingers.
Place them in a baking pan. Give them a little room, but if you don't have room, it's ok. They don't puff up that much. In a sauce pan, heat 1/2 stick of butter, water, and the remaining sugar together. Pour over the dumplings any which way. Sprinkle extra cinnamon on top of the dumplings.
Bake for 1 hour. Notice the syrup is brown and bubbly. Mmm
When they are nearly done, ladle the syrup over the dumplings and put them back into the oven. The dumplings will get all brown and crispy.
Remove from oven and eat while warm. My friend Steve told me to put one in a bowl and pour milk over it and eat it like cereal. I loved it this way!!! It was the perfect amount of sweetness! I can't wait to get more apples to do this again.
Have you ever had apple dumplings? Do you eat them with ice cream or milk?
