We love apples and we love to eat anything with apples. Apple dumplings are so delicious and moist and tasty. I love Granny Smith apples.

How to Make Apple Dumplings

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • 2In a small saucepan, combine the water, white sugar, vanilla, 1 tablespoon butter, and the nutmeg over high heat. Bring to a boil for 1 minute; set aside.
  • 3In a small bowlk combine the brown sugar cinnamon, and remaining 1 tablespoon butter; mix well.
  • 4Unroll pastry and cut into quarters. Stuff each apple cavity with an equal amount of brown sugar mixture and place on a pastry quarter. Fold pastry up around apples and pinch ends together to completely enclose apples. Place dumplings seam-side down in an 8-inch square baking dish and pour sugar sauce over the top.
  • 5Bake 45 to 50 minutes or until golden. Serve warm, drizzled with sugar glaze from bottom of baking dish.
  • 6Notes: Small apples work great for this recipe but they're not always available, so go ahead and use the regular-sized ones cut in half.
