Apple Dumplings

It's Friday! In the kitchen we refer to it as Foodie Friday.
And have I got a recipe to share with you. It's one that I found online. I cannot take the credit, but when you taste it you will claim this recipe for your own! Apples are plentiful right now, and I prefer to use what is season, so this is a terrific recipe for apples.

Apple Dumplings Made Easy

2 Cans Hungry Jack Biscuits
12 Granny Smith Apples
1 Stick of Margarine
1 Cup of Sugar
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Flavoring
1 Cup of Water

 Peel your apples and cut them into pieces the size of a mans thumb. Flatten out your Hungry Jack Biscuits and wrap each little apple portion with a piece of biscuit dough completly around the piece of apple. Place each little wrapped apple piece into a casserole dish that you have sprayed with vegetable oil. You should end up with rows and rows of little dough wrapped apple pieces. While your wrapping your apples preheat your oven to 350 degrees. In a cook pot you want to combine the 1 Cup of Water , 1 heaping Teaspoon Cinnamon , 1 Cup of Sugar, 1 Teaspoon of Vanilla Flavoring and the Stick of Margarine and let it just come to a boil and remove it from the heat. You then want to carefully pour the mixture over your apple dumplings and place the casserole dish into the pre heated oven. Bake for 15 to 20 min until your biscuit dough is golden brown. When you think you have about 5 minutes of baking time left take your casserole dish out of the oven and sprinkle your dunplings with cinnamon. These are excellent when they come from the oven served with cool whip or vanilla ice creme. I like to put a little ice cream caramel on mine. Yummy!

A Note Here -Be sure if you can find them in your area that you use the Hungry Jack brand of biscuits because it does make a big differnce in how your apple dumplings turn out. If you can't find Hungry Jack Biscuits then use Cresent Dinner Rolls. And the type you want are the ones that are raw dough that you can flatten out and wrap around your pieces of raw apples.

Happy Foodie Friday! Thanks for dropping by!

Wow you made those look so easy... Perhaps I will try them... I am always looking for new desserts to bribe the Kids and grandkids (whom are living with me right now) to eat all their dinner!
Have a wonderful week end!
