DUMPLINGS









I love fall food and I love when the weather cools off outside and the produce department starts looking like fall and the upcoming holiday season. I use a lot of apples in things when I am in the kitchen. I bake them, saute them, use them in salads and slice them up for dips and caramel sauce. I am not patient when it comes to peeling and coring them by hand. One of my favorite things to bring out in the fall is this "apple contraption" that I have. It peels, cores and slices with just a few turns of a handle. It is so much fun to use and it makes things so simple and fast.


Here, I have an apple all lined up and ready to go.







When you are finished, you are left with a beautiful stack of apple rings!


Here, I am using the slices to make apple dumplings.
These are so easy to make and are a great thing to take tailgating or to a cookout.
The house smells so wonderful while they are baking.



I bundle up apple pieces and cinnamon in crescent roll dough.


I line them up in a baking dish (seam sides down) that I sprayed with Pam and...

melt together and bring to a boil:
1 stick of butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup regular sugar
1/2 cup water
1/4 of honey
(stir while it cooks for a few minutes - you may need to turn the heat down a little bit)

Pour this over the dumplings.
Sprinkle with pecans.
Then bake at 350' for 30 minutes.



YUM!!
