  • 4 Apples I typically use granny smith apples for these to add a tart taste. They also don't get too mushy when they are cooked like most red apples do, so the texture is better. However, I recently learned that yellow delicious apples also don't get mushy when cooked so I plan to try those in this recipe soon too!
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar divided
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 4 teaspoons
  • 1 can of Pillsbury Grands Flakey Biscuits 8 count
  • Caramel Sauce
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Peel the apples.
  3. Cut the apples in quarters and remove the seeds and stem.
  4. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers so that you have 16 biscuits total.
  5. Wrap a biscuit layer around each apple slice, overlapping and sealing at the bottom.
  6. Place all 16 wrapped dumplings into a greased 9" x 13" pan.
  7. In a small-medium sized saucepan, bring water, 3/4 cup sugar, butter and vanilla to a boil over medium heat.
  8. Pour hot sugar mixture over dumplings. (It will look really soupy and runny.)
  9. Mix remaining 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle this mixture on top of the dumplings.
  10. Bake for approximately 25-35 minutes until the biscuits are cooked and golden brown.
  11. Serve with vanilla ice cream and whipped cream or however you prefer and of course, a big drizzle of caramel sauce!
