Apple Dumplings

/

As soon as the weather got cooler, Tom told me I needed to make apple dumplings. I've made quite a few different apple recipes, apple pie, apple crisp, apple crumb coffee cake, and applesauce, but for some reason, never apple dumplings.

Ingredients:
    • 2 packages pie crust, at room temperature
    • 4 apples, peeled, cored and diced
    • 3 tbsp. sugar
    • 1 tsp. cinnamon
    Sauce:
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1/2 cup brown sugar
    • 2 tbsp. water
    • 2 tsp. vanilla 
    • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350. Butter a 9x13 baking dish.
2. In a small bowl, combine the 3 tbs. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon. Stir to combine. Sprinkle over the apples.
3. Roll out the each of the prepackaged pie crusts and then gather together and roll into a ball. Knead the dough for a minute and then separate into 8-12 equally sized balls. Roll to 1/2 inch thickness.
4. Place the apples, about 3 tbs. into the center of each ball of dough. Fold the dough around the apples and pinch the ends together to seal in apples. Place seam side down in the baking dish. Cut a small "X" in the top of the dough.
5. Repeat with the remaining apples and then bake for 30 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, melt the butter. Once melted add the sugar, brown sugar, water, vanilla and cinnamon.Stir until combined.
7. Spoon the sauce into the "X" shapes in the dough and pour the rest over the apple dumplings. Bake for another 15 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
8. Let cool for 5 minutes and then serve immediately.

The smell of these cooking is absolutely wonderful. Tom tried one immediately and said that they passed the "taste like my mom's" test. I thought they were delicious!
