Apple Dumplings

A perfect fall recipe that uses delicious fresh apples.

Greetings fellow bakers, let’s strap on our aprons and bake!  I just love this time of year.  School has begun and the kids are excited to see their friends after the long summer break.   There is the lovely feeling of crisp air and a new start to the school year.  The time of harvest comes with fresh and delicious apples.  I have a great recipe for you all to try.  Apple Dumplings that will warm you to the tip of your toes.

 

Apple Dumplings

You will need the following ingredients:

 6 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature

½ cup butter

1 teaspoon vanilla

½ cup brown sugar

¼ cup sugar

1 apple (washed, cored, and sliced into 8 slices)

6 ounces lemon lime soda

Cinnamon to sprinkle

a

Allow your rolls to thaw to room temperature.   You want your rolls to be nice and warm.  You will be able to rolls them out easier the warmer they are ***Tip*** I like to allow my rolls to thaw overnight in the refrigerator.  Place rolls in a zippered bag and lay flat in the fridge.

Spray counter with non-stick cooking spray.  Combine 6 rolls and roll into a 12-inch circle.  Don’t be frustrated if the dough “springs” back, cover and allow to rest for about 10 minutes.

 Once you have a 12-inch circle cut “pizza style” into 8 equal wedges.

 Place and apple slice onto the wide end of each wedge.  Roll the dough around the apple slice.

Spray a 9x13 pan with non-stick cooking spray.  Place each apple that has been wrapped in dough into pan.  Cover pan with plastic wrap and allow to rise for 40 minutes.

 Melt  ½ cup butter in a small sauce pan add ½ cup brown sugar, ¼ cup sugar, and 1 teaspoon  vanilla.  This makes a yummy caramel mixture!  Pour over risen dumplings.

Pour soda over dumplings and sprinkle with cinnamon.  ***Tip*** I tried the recipe without the soda and I liked it a little more.  I personally like a thicker caramel topping …yum

Bake a 350 degree for 20-30 minutes. ***Tip*** make sure the dumplings are cooked completely.  I would allow them to cool so they can “set”, then warm again to serve.

Spoon syrup from the pan over the dumplings and serve.

This is amazing served warm a-la-mode.  Ice cream makes everything amazing, right?   I tried these apple dumplings with 3 different kinds of apples,  Fuji, Granny Smith, and Jonnagold.  Jonnagold was my favorite but it is my favorite apple, it has a nice delicious flavor and is good and crisp.  Any crisp apple is great, try a few and pick your favorite.   I’m excited for fall and all the fruits of summers’ labors. Let’s hang up our aprons until we bake again.
