"This was an amazing dessert! Wanted something simple and tasty with few ingredients, i made 1 and a half portion size and cooked for a lot longer, also warmed before serving, was a little difficult to dish up because i think i rolled the pastry too thin, but got rave reviews! I have been instructed that this should be a staple in future, thanks for the awesome recipe!"

"I made these tonight using gala apples. I followed the recipe to a T (it even works well with skim milk). I reviewed several recipes prior to making this dessert when I stumbled across this same recipe word for word in a amish cook book published in 2012. I was very surprised since I see this recipe is from 1999 so am a little disappointed in my amish cook book I purchased last fall in amish country. Needless to say this recipe is a winner! The dough is very easy to work with and the dessert makes your entire house smell like cinnamon heaven. The texture of the dough is light and fluffy almost like a cross between a biscuit and a buttery pie crust."

"My husband has been trying to get me to make apple dumplings for months and I finally did today. These are so easy and tasted fantastic. I was so pleased with the flavor and how simple these were to put together, all that was missing was the ice cream!"

"These are Exactly what I have been searching for! I tweaked it a bit as far as ingredients, i.e. less sugar and more cinnamon. My Aunt used to make these for us when I was little and I have tried to duplicate her recipe, to no avail on the perfect taste! However, these DID IT! Thanks so much for sharing...."

"These are delicious! The syrup seems thin, but during the baking process it's transformed into a delicious thick sauce. The pastry is so tender and good! I wouldn't change a thing, and I'll keep the recipe with those that are my stand-bys."
