READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
  • Roll out each sheet of pastry to measure 12x12 inches. Cut into quarters, to make 8 - 6 inch squares.
  • In a small bowl, combine sugar, bread crumbs, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • Brush a pastry square with beaten egg.
  • Place 1 tablespoon bread crumb mixture in center.
  • Place one apple half, core side down, over bread crumbs.
  • Top with another tablespoon of mixture.
  • Pull up four corners of pastry and pinch sides together to seal seams completely. Repeat with remaining apples.
  • Brush each dumpling with beaten egg.
  • Top with Pecan Streusel.
  • Place in preheated oven for 15 minutes, then reduce heat to 350°F (175°C) and continue baking 25 minutes more, until lightly browned.
  • Drizzle with icing.
  • Let cool completely at room temperature.
  • PECAN STREUSEL: In a small bowl, combine 2/3 cup chopped toasted pecans, 2/3 cup packed brown sugar, 2/3 cup all-purpose flour and 5 tablespoons melted butter. Mix with a fork until mixture resembles moist crumbs. Use as directed in recipe. Make more or less as desired.
  • To make icing, combine confectioners' sugar and vanilla and enough milk to make a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled dumplings. Serve the same day.
