Apple Dumpling Recipe


These are the old-fashioned apple dumplings your grandmother used to make. An apple dumpling is warm and flaky, like your own personal apple pie. The apple dumpling recipe originated with the Pennsylvania Amish. Its popularity has spread throughout the American Northeast and Midwestern region.

Although making apple dumplings isn't difficult, it does take some time and preparation. To save some time, use refrigerated pie crust. Eat this simple but scrumptious dessert when it is fresh from the oven. Once you taste it, you'll know your time was well spent.

Ingredients :

1 pastry for 2-crust pie

Syrup Ingredients:

1 cup granulated white sugar
2 cups water
3 Tablespoons butter (softened)
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

Filling Ingredients:

6 apples (peeled and cored)
1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons nutmeg
2 Tablespoons butter (softened)


1. Roll pastry slightly less than 1/8" thick. Cut into 7" squares.

2. Bring syrup ingredients to boil. Boil 3 minutes.

3. Put apple on center of each pastry square. Fill with mixture of sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. Dot each with teaspoon of butter.

4. Bring points of pastry up over apple and overlap.

5. Place a few inches apart in baking pan. Pour 1 cup hot syrup mixture around dumplings.

6. Bake at 425 degrees F for 45 minutes. Just before serving pour rest of warm syrup over dumplings and serve with cream.

Apple Dumplings!!!!! I can't wait to taste them..since moving to NY from Pennsylvania I can't find them anywhere so I'm making them myself. They look easy enough!! Soooo good with milk.
