A Delectable Apple Dumpling Recipe

September 5th, 2013 Cooking

These days, it seems like everyone has his or her own variation of apple dumplings, but regardless of whose food you try, you're always going to think that yours are the best. Whether you've been using your grandmother's recipe or your mother's tricks to create dumplings, it doesn't hurt to put your own spin on the traditional treat. Here's an apple dumpling recipe that you can try and call your own for generations to come.


  • Premade pie crust dough
  • 4 sliced and peeled apples
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup water


1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

2. Roll out your premade pie crust dough onto your counter or table. With a rolling pin, flatten and extend the dough outward until it's approximately 1/4 inch thick.

3. Using a circular cookie cutter, cut the dough into separate pieces. Set each circle aside - these pieces will serve as the base for your dumplings.

4. Place slices of apples onto each circular cut-out of dough, then fold the pieces over and seal at the seams. Crimp the ends with a fork or your fingers to secure the apples inside of the dumpling exterior.

5. Coat a baking sheet with non-stick spray, then place each apple dumpling onto the sheet, leaving about an inch of space in between. 

6. Combine the water, cinnamon, sugar and melted butter in a bowl, then mix all of the ingredients thoroughly.

7. Pour the mixture over the apple dumplings liberally, coating them to your liking.

8. Once the oven is preheated, place the dumplings in for about 35 minutes. Once the dumplings are golden brown, they're ready to be removed from the oven. Allow them to sit and cool for at least 45 minutes before eating.
