Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.
Thaw and unfold puff pastry.
On lightly floured surface, roll the pastry into a 16" sqaure.
Cut with a knife into 4 equal pieces.
Peel and core apples.
Trim the bottoms so the apples sit flat.
Place 1 apple in the center of each square.
Use 1/4 teaspoon of lemon juice if apples start to turn brown.
Mix together the brown sugar, butter and cinnamon.
Spoon into apples.
Beat the egg and water together in a small bowl.
Moisten the edge of the pastry with the mixture.
Bring the pastry up around the apple, pleating the pastry as needed to form a seal.
Place the dumplings in an ungreased 9x13 inch baking dish.
Brush them with remaining egg mixture, sprinkle with granulated sugar.
Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown.
When ready to serve; heat the caramel sauce and the toasted pecans.
Place a warm dumpling on a serving plate and drizzle the sauce over the top.
Garnish with cool-whip or vanilla ice cream, if desired.
