These are the old-fashioned apple dumplings your grandmother used to make. An apple dumpling is warm and flaky, like your own personal apple pie. The apple dumpling recipe originated with the Pennsylvania Amish. Its popularity has spread throughout the American Northeast and Midwestern region.
Although making apple dumplings isn't difficult, it does take some time and preparation. To save some time, use refrigerated pie crust. Eat this simple but scrumptious dessert when it is fresh from the oven. Once you taste it, you'll know your time was well spent.
