These are the true old-fashioned apple dumplings! The sauce is awesome. They aren’t difficult, and were kind of fun to make. I think you could even use store-bought pie dough if you aren’t good at making your own. I think these are a true comfort food. Try them! Danny R.
First, I scaled this recipe down to 4 servings. I really wanted to take this one step further and make as close to my Nanny’s recipe as possible. She always used canned biscuits. So I substituted Pillsbury Buttermilk Golden Layer biscuits for the pie crust. I used 2 1/2 rolled biscuits for each apple. Wrapping each apple and gently closing the tops.
Then I cooked in a 350 degree oven for approximately 50 minutes. The real secret is to keep basting the apples with your sauce about every 10 minutes to keep the crust nicely glazed, which will bake to a beautiful golden crust. I served this with homemade vanilla ice cream. My husband says it is the best ever! This is definitely a “MUST HAVE” recipe. Thanks!
