“These easy apple dumplings taste just like the ones I would get at the county fair. You will need a total of 1/4 cup butter for this recipe. I like to use golden delicious apples because they hold their shape after baking. Other baking apples can be used. You can easily halve or double this recipe. The baking time will not change.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
