Easy Apple Dumplings
Very easy, inexpensive and yummy!
- 2 Granny Smith apples
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup sugar *divided
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
- 1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
- 8 canned biscuits (buttermilk)
- 4 tsp. ground cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Peel, core and slice apples vertically into 8 slices each. Cover with water to keep them from getting brown.
In a medium saucepan, mix the water, 3/4 cup sugar, butter and vanilla over heat and bring mixture to a boil.
Separate each biscuit into 2 layers and flatten with your hands. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching it to slightly overlap and seal the bottom. (You can use a rolling pin to roll them out since stretching them is sometimes hard to get them even).
Place the wrapped slices sealed side down in a 9 X 13 baking pan. Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices.
Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with cinnamon and sprinkle over the tops of the wrapped apples.
Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown. Serves 8
