Fall Must-Make: Apple Dumplings + Apple Recipe Round Up

I can't believe I'm doing this but I'm giving up my most prized apple recipe.

Because really, good food is meant to be shared.

This recipe is so nostalgic for me because it's my mom's and she makes

it even better than I do.

So without further ado, I give you:

Apple Dumplings

I love this recipe because there's not much in it but it's so super delicious.


- Jiffy pie crust mix

- cooking apples (whatever you prefer)

- brown sugar

- cinnamon


I think the other reason I love it is because there's no measurements for the filling part.

I'm an eyeball it kinda girl. And that's why I usually prefer cooking for the eyeball-it, intuition, non-precise, forgiving nature of it. 

Step 1: Peel and cut apples into small pieces.

I usually do about 4-5 apples depending on the size. Again, eye-balling it.

Step 2: Place apples in a bowl and sprinkle with brown sugar and cinnamon.

Step. 3: In a separate bowl, mix Jiffy pie crust according to box.

You could make your own piece crust or use store bought but I honestly think

this Jiffy crust is what makes it so delicious.

Step 4: Roll pie crust out into a rectangle on a floured surface.

Step 5: Cover pie crust with apples and sprinkle with small pieces of cold butter.

Step 6: Roll into a tight log

Step 7: Cut log into pieces

Sometimes I do 6, sometimes I do 8. Depends on how I'm feeling.

Step 8: Grease an 8x8 pan and place pieces in apple side up

Step 9: Make your sauce.

Boil together:

-2/3 C sugar

- 1 1/2 C water

- 2 TB butter

1/4 tsp cinnamon

Let boil 3 minutes.

Pour your sauce over your slices.

Step 10: Bake at 425 degrees for 30-40 minutes or until lightly browned

Let cool slightly and enjoy!

Best served a la mode. Duh.
