Apple Dumplings

  • 6 apples
  • 2 pie crusts
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  • Preheat your oven to 350°.
  • Use a apple peeler, slicer & corer to peel, core and spiral your apples.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll the pie crust a bit thinner and then cut into thirds.
  • In a small bowl, combine the sugar and cinnamon.
  • Sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar generously over the apples and then place into the center of one of the pie crust portions.
  • Dip your finger in water and wet the edges of the pie crust to help the pie crust seal.
  • Bring the edges of the pie crust up to the top of the apple, pinching to seal off the crust. Transfer to a greased cookie sheet.
  • Repeat with the remaining apples.
  • Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes. Pull them out when the crusts just barely start turning brown.
  • While the apple dumplings are baking, make the caramel sauce.
  • Combine the brown sugar, butter, and heavy cream in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in the vanilla. Allow the caramel to cool until the apples come out of the oven.
  • When the apples come out of the oven, let them rest for 5 minutes before transferring to a plate, topping with a generous drizzle of caramel and serving.
