Apple Dumplings

November 19, 2011 at 11:14 pm Leave a comment

Inspired by a recipe from America’s Test Kitchen

Preheat oven to 375°

You will need enough biscuit dough from your favorite recipe for about 3 or 4 biscuits. The amount depends on how thick you like your crust. I used 1 cup of homemade ‘Biquick’ that I keep in the freezer. Roll the dough flat and cut into four sections, large enough to wrap around an apple half.

2 largish apples, peeled and cut across their equators
remove the inner core and stem with melon baller, be careful not to cut through completely

2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon white sugar
1 tablespoon raisins, chopped
pinch of cinnamon

Mix the butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and raisins
put approximately 1/4 of compound butter into the cored out apple
wrap each apple half with biscuit dough (make sure to leave a hole at the top for the steam to escape)
coat top with a little water and sprinkle with the tops with white sugar

Bake at 375° for 30-40 minutes

Serve with a drizzle of caramel sauce.

#audreycancook Another #leftover creation, skillet #appletart, a #smallbatch #audreycancook Skillet chicken #enchiladas a #smallbatch.  A great recipe for clearing out the fridge. On the blog soon. #audreycancook I've been working on a recipe for #icecream made without a machine. They're all over the web. I'm still not convinced, it's overly sweet and the texture is like frozen mousse. #audreycancook
