I love apple dumplings, but I’ve never made them before. I couldn’t believe how easy and how incredibly delicious these were! The apples were perfectly done and the flavors were great. The pastry is delicate and crisp. I used pecans in place of raisins in the filling. And the cider sauce was the perfect finishing touch.
Since there are only two of us, I halved the recipe. I also baked them in individual pie plates rather than on a baking sheet. We thought the half apple size was perfect.
This would be a great dessert for a dinner party because it can ll be done ahead, then placed in the oven while dinner is being served, then served warm – delicious!
