Quick and Easy Apple Dumplings
Be sure to spoon some of the yummy sauce from the bottom of the pan on top of the dumplings after they're baked, and serve hot with vanilla ice cream.
Granny Smith apples
or other large baking apples, peeled, cored, each sliced into quarters
Pillsbury "Grands" flaky layers
Preheat oven to 375℉ (190℃). Line with parchment or grease a 13" x 9" pan.
Separate each biscuit into 2 layers (there should be 16 pieces).
Wrap a biscuit layer around each apple quarter, overlapping the dough and sealing on the bottom.
Place all of the wrapped "dumplings" in the prepared pan.
In a medium saucepan, bring the water, ¾ cup of the sugar and the butter to a boil over medium-high heat; remove from heat and stir in the vanilla extract.
Pour the hot sugar liquid over the dumplings in the pan.
Combine the remaining ¼ cup of sugar with the ground cinnamon; sprinkle over the tops of the dumplings.
Bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until golden brown.
Serve hot or warm with vanilla ice cream, if desired.
