Mother often prepared this special treat for us, ready to take out of the oven just as we came home from school. I remember so vividly, upon opening the door to the house, the magnificent aroma!

"My husband really enjoyed these apple dumplings. They were so quick and easy to pepare. They also made the kitchen smell delicious.

I discovered that the dough wraps around the apples more completely if I use 3 pie crusts. I cut each in half roll the 6 halves into separate balls then flatten each ball enough to fit around the apples."

"This is the exact recipe my grandma and mom made and now I use. A family tradition served at Thanksgiving and Christmas. Mine are the freezer ready to go. I prepare the apples in the pastry, then double bag them individually in fold & lock sandwich bags, place on cookie sheet and freeze overnight, then place in a large freezer zip bag. When ready to bake, complete as stated in recipe. Add 10-15 minutes baking time depending on size of apples, due to starting with frozen apples. Also, we double the sauce. Reserving half to warm up and pour over dumplings and ice cream. Yum!"
