How to Make Apple Dumplings with Red Hots Cinnamon Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Peel and hollow out the apples saving the peels in a saucepan with about 2 cups of water

  4. Place a pat of butter in the apple cavity, top with cinnamon sugar, brown sugar and another pat of butter
  5. Pull opposite sides of dough up around apple twice to cover apple. Place in pan. Repeat steps 3,4,5 for all apples
  6. Bake 350 degrees for about an hour until crust is light brown and flaky.
  7. While apples are baking prepare the sauce:
    Boil peels until they are mushy, then discard peels
  8. To the boiling water add 1 cup cinnamon sugar, nutmeg, 2 Tbsp butter, 1/2 bag of red hots. Simmer until candies are melted
  9. In a small container combine 1/4 cup water and 1 Tbsp cornstarch. Stir completely.
  10. Add cornstarch mixture SLOWLY to syrup mixture to thicken. You may not need it all.
