Reviews for Baked Apple Dumplings
"The apple needs to be chopped smaller & the icing makes it way sweet. Yummy without it"
"Really really good!"
"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..."
"I've now made them two ways. First time following the resipe exact and they turned out very well but I noted the apples sunk as they cooked leaving an overinflated shell, but taste was great. Second time I did what someone else did and used a canned apple pie filling to see if I could reduce the shrinkage of the apples. It worked and left a fuller dumpling. Both taste great. just remember to chop everything small, apples and nuts. I used Granny Smith Apples in the recipe and served them warm with a scoop of Vanilla Ice-cream."
"I prepared the recipe usling apple pie mix rather than the fresh apple and everybody loved them. Everyone has asked for the recipe."
