Baked Apple Dumplings Recipe

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

MY REVIEW

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.

Very easy to put together and flavors come through well. Chopping the apples in smaller pieces insure that the dumplings do not pop open during baking, as happened the first time I tried these. Many compliments and requests to make again
