WHEN Mom made pies to feed the crew during wheat harvest, she always had plenty of dough left over, so she treated us kids to apple dumplings. I've carried on this tradition in my own family. Now my husband and I enjoy this special dessert even when I'm not baking pies.

Made as single servings, this treat is ideal for tailgating or other parties. When I serve a platter of my pies, they disappear quickly. While the pies are shaped into footballs, you can cut out the tender pastry with large cookie cutters into holiday shapes. For Valentine's Day, I use heart-shape cutters and cut out a small heart in top crust...it's so special. —Jennifer Stoltz, Spring Green, WI
