Apple Dumplings

Yesterday was another crazy Wednesday. I drove a total of 43 miles, and my farthest destination was only about 6 miles away. But there’s always time for a good dessert, right? Here is one we tried last night. It got a big thumbs-up from everyone!

Apple Dumplings

2 Tbsp. softened butter
½ cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
¼ chopped pecans or walnuts
4 apples (any variety but Red Delicious)
1 container 9-inch pie crusts

Heat over to 425 degrees. Peel, halve horizontally, and core the apples. In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, and nuts. Unroll one pie crust (I sprayed my counter with Pam) and stretch out into a square. Cut the pie crust into four 6-inch squares. Place an apple half on a pie crust square, and fill the core with about 1 Tbsp. of brown sugar filling. Bring up the four corners of the pastry, and pinch to seal. Give them a little head space so the filling has room to breathe. Repeat with remaining apples and dough. Bake for 10 minutes until pastry starts to brown, then reduce oven temp to 375 and bake 15-20 minutes more, until pastry is golden brown. Top with whip cream or vanilla ice cream. YUM!
