Apple Pie Dumplings
I’ve had a lot of Summer themed blogs going on lately and although I didn’t do it all on purpose, I love how it’s all tying in together so perfectly. You can obviously make any dessert or food any time of the year you want it, but with Summer barbeques coming up there’s almost nothing more classic than apple pie. Why not make it even easier and a little more fun by making apple pie dumplings? Dumplings are one of my favorite things ever and you know I’m all about the easy meals, so this is perfect!
You’ll only need three ingredients for this recipe:
~20 oz Apple pie filling
~One can of crescent rolls
~1 tsp Cinnamon
To start, you want to open the can of crescent rolls and place them on a cutting board or whatever you would like to cut them on. Make sure not to unroll them like you usually would. Keep the shape they have in the can and cut them into small sections. Obviously, the more sections you make the more dumplings you’ll have. I ended up cutting mine into 11 pieces. Keep in mind that they will also grow in size during baking.
Roll each section of dough into a ball and put them into a large tupperware or bowl. Put the apple pie filling directly on top, along with the cinnamon, and mix everything just until the cinnamon is combined and all of the dough is coated. Any dough that isn’t coated with pie filling will likely burn and become too crispy. Place the mixture into an ungreased pie dish, making sure the bottom of the pan is covered and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes.
I like my dumplings to still be a little doughy and 20 minutes is perfect. You can see the tops are a nice golden brown, but the center dumplings are still a little gooey. You can leave them in longer if you’d like, but only by a few minutes otherwise the dumplings will become too dry. Once this cools, it’s ready to serve.
I’m not the biggest ice cream person, so I just eat this on its own but I’m sure it’d be great with some vanilla bean ice cream. This time, I just used regular apple pie filling, but I’ve also used caramel apple and a few other pie fillings that tasted just as delicious. This only takes about 5-10 minutes prep time and is one of the easiest dessert recipes out there.
