Easy Caramel Apple Pie Dumplings

“Oh my, oh lord, get out of town”…Which one of these description’s deem more appropriate??  Ok, maybe we said all of the above.  Yes, even my lil boys.  Yes…again…we may of had a second helping, perhaps even a third and if you blame us, then please unsubsribe.

Sooooo crazy good!!

The Starting Lineup

  • 1 roll unbaked pie dough (i.e Pillsbury)
  • 1 can apple pie filling ( you may have extra depending..eat with spoon)
  • 1 jar caramel sauce
  • 2 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp water
  • cinnamon (for dusting)
  • Flour dusting (optional)

Optional

  • Vanilla ice cream
  • Pecans/Walnuts  

Preheat your oven to 425 degress and have a baking sheet ready (non-stick, Parchment paper, foil, etc).  

IF NEEDED, on a light dusting of flour, I will roll out the pre-made dough into a more rectangular shape and then using a pizza/pastry cutter, slice into 3×3″ squares.  

    Brush a bit of the melted butter over top each dough square and then spoon about 1-2 TBSP of apple pie filling onto the middle of each dough square.  Pinch the 4 corners together around the filling (pinch it all over..if a bit of filling comes out..fantastic! 😉 and there is your ‘dumpling’!

  Now, after the dumplings are filled and pinched closed on the baking sheet, brush the beaten egg + water over top each one.  This makes for a crispier, golden brown crust.  Who doesn’t love that??  I then recommend a pinch of cinnamon/sugar over the top of each.  This will also help for not only flavor, but a golden color.

   Place these into the oven for 10 minutes to brown. 

 Meanwhile..heat up the caramel sauce on the stove top or microwave…I just pop the lid and microwave it..this is an easy dessert afterall, right??

Once the apple dumplings are warmed & crisp, I prefer to serve them over some cold vanilla-bean ice cream scoops with a caramel drizzle.  Goodness Gracious!!!
