Easy Apple Dumplings


As soon as the first hint of fall weather arrives, I can’t stop thinking about fall baking. And these Easy Apple Dumplings are at the top of my fall baking list every year.

Since there’s plenty of sweetness going on in this recipe, I like to use a tart apple like Granny Smith. If you want to use a sweeter apple, try Gala or Honeycrisp.

These Dumplings are super buttery with lots of cinnamon flavor and they’re best served warm with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream. Using refrigerated biscuit dough is a great shortcut. They make the recipe virtiually foolproof.

For even more flavor, you can try drizzling a little caramel sauce over them when you dish them up.
