  1. Make your pie crust as you normally do and divide evenly for the amount of apples you have (6 for 6 apples, 8 for 8 apples etc.).
  2. mix the dry ingredients.
  3. Roll out pastry (the size of a small egg) into a circle big enough to"cover" the whole apple.
  4. Place an apple in center of each circle of dough and fill hole where core was with a pat of butter, some of the dry mix and top with another pat of butter.
  5. "fold"dough up and encase apple with dough sealing at the top.
  6. They will look like a"purse" sort of.
  7. Bake 350F degrees until dough is golden brown and apple is tender.

Very nice! I love apple dumplings and this was a great recipe, just like my grandmother made them. Followed the recipe exactly and was really happy with them. Thank you!

My Grandmother has been making these since I was little. They are sooooo divine. She always drizzles a sauce over them just before we are ready to eat them. She boils down brown sugar and butter and adds a dash of almond flavouring which goes wonderfully with the apples. Thanks for posting such a delicious favorite!!!! Sybil
