Caramel Apple Dumpling Recipe
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Servings: 16 dumplings
Author: Simply Designing with Ashley Phipps
Ingredients
  • 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
Instructions
  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!
