Recipe: Maple Apple Dumplings

Thumbing through the spiral bound notebook of dessert recipes my sweet mother wrote in long-hand back in 1981, for me, the daughter who couldn’t cook, I found a recipe that is perfect for Thanksgiving dessert. Or, at least deserves to be on the dessert table as one of the desserts for Thanksgiving dinner. (I’d be a lost cooking cause if it weren’t for all the recipes Mom put on paper for me.)  Maple Apple Dumplings. It is pretty and wonderful and tasty and yummy. You get the idea.

Maple Apple Dumplings

Pastry for 2 Crust Pie
6 medium cooking apples
6 Tablespoons light brown sugar
6 Tablespoons margarine or butter
1 cup maple flavored syrup
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup water
Whipped Cream

Make six pastry rounds. Core and peel apples. Place 1 Tablespoon brown sugar and 1 Tablespoon margarine in each apple and wrap in pastry. Place in baking dish and refrigerate for 30 minutes. Make syrup of sugar, water and maple syrup and boil gently for 5 minutes. Spoon 1 Tablespoon of syrup over each dumpling and bake in a 425 oven (preheated) for 10 minutes. Pour the rest of syrup mixture over dumplings and bake 30 minutes longer. Top with whipped cream to serve. Serves 6.

Y’all Enjoy! 🙂
