There are desserts, and then there are desserts that transport you to a different realm with every bite. Our Apple Dumplings fit the latter category, promising a symphony of flavors and textures with juicy Granny Smith apples wrapped in a soft, pillowy dough, all drenched in a luscious cinnamon-spiced sauce. This is not just a treat; it’s an experience that evokes memories of warm kitchens, laughter, and love.
- 6 Granny Smith apples, cored and peeled
- Extra cinnamon & sugar mix (no specific measure, adjust to your taste)
- Flour, baking powder, salt, butter, and milk for the dough (quantities not specified in the original recipe)
- Sauce (specific ingredients and quantities not provided in the original recipe)
- Kick off your culinary journey by preheating your oven to 350°F.
- With your apples peeled and cored, it’s time to prepare the dough. In a food processor, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Give it a few pulses before adding butter and milk. Continue pulsing until a soft dough forms.
- Divide the dough into six even portions and roll each one into a circular shape on a floured surface.
- Sprinkle your desired amount of cinnamon and sugar mix inside each apple’s core.
- Place an apple in the center of each dough circle. Mold the dough around the apple, ensuring it’s entirely covered.
- Place the wrapped apples in a greased 9×13-inch baking dish.
- For the sauce, combine water, sugar, butter, and cinnamon in a saucepan. Heat until it lightly boils, then let it cool a bit.
- Pour the sauce around and slightly over the dumplings.
- As the dumplings bake, baste them with the sauce halfway through to ensure they soak up all that goodness.
- Bake for 50-55 minutes or until the apples are tender. Test their doneness by sliding a slender knife inside.
- Serve these delightful dumplings with ice cream, whipped cream, or even a glass of milk. The sauce is a star in its own right, so make sure you drizzle plenty!
- Versatility: Feel free to experiment with different apple varieties for varying flavors.
- Serving Suggestion: These dumplings taste heavenly when warm, so consider reheating them before serving if they’ve cooled.
- A Treat for All: Whether it’s a festive occasion or a simple family dinner, these apple dumplings are sure to steal the show.
