Apple Dumplings

Apple Dumplings

I have so much respect and admiration for Trisha Yearwood. Love her voice, love her music and also love her cookbooks and her recipes.

Apple Dumplings

To say that her TV show is one of my favorites, is an understatement. She is the kind of home cook that I admire, down to earth, simple, sharing family favorites and making us laugh.

Apple Dumplings

This recipe is one of our favorites, I often turn to it when I want a simple dessert that tastes fantastic.

2 Granny Smith apples
1 lemon
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 canned buttermilk biscuits
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.

Peel, core and slice the apples vertically into 8 slices each. Squeeze the lemon into a bowl of water and add the apple slices to keep from turning brown.

In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the butter and vanilla. Bring the sugar mixture to a boil over medium heat.

Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap, and seal on the bottom. Place the wrapped slices, sealed-side down, in a 9- by 12- by 2-inch casserole dish.

Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices. Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the wrapped apples. Bake until golden brown, 35 minutes.

They are amazing on their own, but if you want to kick it up a little, try adding a scoop of ice cream or some homemade whipped cream. Heavenly!
