Baked Apple Dumplings
Snow White's apple dumpling recipe persuaded the Seven Dwarfs to let her stay. If a Disney cartoon character could make apple dumplings worth remembering, surely the modern American cook can.
Why This Recipe Works
Biscuit dough was easier to work with than pie dough for our Baked Apple Dumplings and did a great job of absorbing the liquid from the apples without getting mushy. Some apple varieties we found didn’t cook through quickly enough, while others turned to mush. We settled on sweeter Golden Delicious, which had the perfect consistency when prepared correctly. We found no reason to bake the dumplings in syrup. To avoid a soggy mess, we made the sauce for our Baked Apple Dumplings separately and saved it for serving.
