Love the name Dough Bellies! EatnPark is a well-liked local family restaurant in Western PA and Ohio. Some years ago, this appeared in a cookbook of employee's favorite recipes. It is a delicious time-saver.

AWESOME! My first apple dumplings baked in a pan and so not my last. Couldn't wait to try these - hot from the oven made for my supper! The rest our dessert. Unbelievably delicious! I made my dough in the bread maker -warmed the milk to room temperature - placed the twelve in a 9x13 pan (only because my 11 x7's in the freezer) - the 9x13 worked well. They were nicely browned in 30 minutes. What a taste treat, the bottoms dumpling like the top a wonderful bun with a touch of sweet. I can't wait to serve this for brunch and for coffee hours. Thank you - this ones filed in my Family Favourites and in my Brunch cookbooks.
