These versatile dumplings can be made with peaches or mixed berries in place of apples, and drizzled with hot caramel sauce instead of icing. Add vanilla custard or ice cream, and it’s the perfect dessert.—Evangeline Bradford, Erlanger, Kentucky

  1. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, bread crumbs, cinnamon and nutmeg. On a lightly floured surface, roll pastry into two 12-in. squares. Cut each sheet into nine 4-in. squares.

"The apple needs to be chopped smaller & the icing makes it way sweet. Yummy without it"

"This recipe is excellent. I used Granny Smith apples and topped them with the streusel mix but did not use the icing. They came out great and were a big hit. I will make them again."

"Fabulous, even without the streusel and icing which I didn't have time to do. Can't wait until I can make it as written."

"Delish!!! This is a great recipe. Thanks reader7 and Travlnman02 for the warning to chop the apples into smaller pieces. This recipe is not too sweet, which was exactly what I was looking for. I didn't try the icing but served it with whipped cream. A keeper..."
