Easy Apple Dumplings

Linda Griffith


This is one dessert that I can't seem to make enough of. My family loves them. They are wonderful served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. It's quick and easy too. You only use one apple to make the dessert shown on the left. It's also versatile. Use firm but ripe peaches or pears if you like....
