OMG these are so good!! My family absolutely loves them... how could anyone not like this with tender apples wrapped in a yummy dough and a sweet cinnamon-brown sugar sauce... top it off, warm from the oven with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or REAL whipped cream.... ooo yum...

Made these last night and they turned out great. I have made several different recipes for apple dumplings and most of them were very good, but as my dh says I am a recipe junkie so I'm always trying something new. Well, this recipe will probably be the last apple dumpling one I use. They were wonderful and dh even said to stick with this one. I just peeled and cored the apples and left whole and that worked out well. Yes there was a lot of dough so I might cut back on it some next time. Thanks for a wonderful dessert!

I was looking for something to make, besides pie, with all the apples we have this year, and found this recipe. It was really great but I added a lot more apples since I had a bunch of them already peeled. I just put all the extra apples in the sauce and baked them all together. YUM!

I just finished eating this now. MMMM yumm! Fairly simple and tastes so good! I added a little sauce with the apples, and also sprinkled some white sugar on top of the dumplings before chucking them in the oven. Other than that this recipe is perfect. A keeper!
