Tempt my Tummy Tuesday--Apple Dumplings

Several years ago, when in the hospital having a baby, I had one of these. It was so yummy & I've been meaning to make them myself ever since. I bought apples on sale this week for $1 per pound & decided to give it a try.

It is a baked apple wrapped in pie crust. Any pie crust will work, I used a premade frozen one this time. I could also have used the pie crust recipe I use for my apple pie.

If using a frozen crust, take it out of the freezer & let it sit for at least an hour. Preheat the oven to 375.

One crust will make two dumplings. Wash the apples & cut out the core being sure to get all the seeds. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar into the center of the apple. Place 1 T butter in the center of apple. If using premade crust, cut it into 2 even pieces. If using homemade crust, roll out into a traditional pie circle, then cut in half. Wrap the apple in 1/2 circle of pie crust. Use your fingers to smooth it until the apple is completely covered. Place in ungreased pie pan & repeat for additional dumplings. Bake until crust is golden. Let cool for a few minutes & ENJOY!!!
