I made these apple dumplings after dinner on Tuesday night. They turned out really, really good! Here's a little photo essay about how they were made.
The apples came first, of course. These are Granny Smiths from Eastern Long Island.
Butter, brown sugar, water, cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla - all boiled together in a heavy saucepan.
Six apples. Peeled and cored.
Fill each apple with brown sugar, sprinkle with cinnamon, and wrap with your favorite pastry dough.
Pour the sauce on apple dumplings that have been placed in a 9x13 baking dish.
And bake at 350° for one hour.
