Breakfast is served. Or dessert. Maybe even a snack. Apple Dumplings are one of my favorite comfort foods when the weather gets colder. I prepped these last night & I threw them in the oven this morning, fifty minutes later the kitchen smelled better than a cinnamon candle & breakfast was done.

Apple dumplings with a cranberry cinnamon sauce.
Serves: 4 apple dumplings
  • 4 medium sized apples, any variety
  • 1 can of biscuit dough - I use Pillsbury Grands because they have 8 biscuits & I use two biscuits per apple.
  • Cranberry Cinnamon Sauce:
  • 1 12 ounce can of whole cranberry sauce
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 teaspoon corn starch
  • ¼ cup of sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  1. Pre heat your oven to 300 degrees.
  2. Wash, core & peel your apples.
  3. Peeling the apple is optional, I really don't mind the skin left on but it's up to your preference.
  4. Use two biscuits to cover & wrap each half of the apple completely.
  5. Press the ends of the biscuits in the middle together tight, they may separate in the oven a bit if you don't.
  6. Place the biscuit wrapped apples in an oven safe pan sprayed with cooking spray & poke a few holes in the tops with a fork.
  7. Bake for about 50 minutes or until the apples are soft & cooked. Poke with a fork to test them.
  8. Combine cranberry sauce, water, corn starch, & sugar in a sauce pan.
  9. Cook over a heat low & stir until you break down the cranberry sauce.
  10. Stir in butter & cinnamon.
  11. Bring sauce to a boil & remove from heat.
  12. When your apples are 5 minutes away from being done, cover them with sauce & bake for 5 minutes.
  13. Serve hot & enjoy.

  9. I was trying to think of a great morning meal for Thursday. We are in such anticipation of the afternoon dinner that I’d like something to start the day with a treat that is out of our normal routine and these are it! Thank you for the inspiration.

    Found this on foodfotogallery. It looks so wonderful that I had to just stop by and tell you so. I don’t bake all that often, but this appears to be something I just might be able to handle. Thanks for sharing.
