It’s Wednesday and What are you Cook today ? Today I am celebrating Apple Dumplings something I fell in love with in Michigan Amish country. I would buy these at the farmers market and road side stands. Since I am living back in Louisiana I had to find a recipe I could make and share with friends . So here’s today !

The Best Apples for Baking

  • Jonagold. Tart with a honeyed sweetness, Jonagolds hold up exceptionally well in the oven. …
  • Honeycrisp. This is our desert-island apple. …
  • Granny Smith
  • Braeburn. …
  • Mutsu. …
  • Winesap. …
  • Pink Lady (or Cripps Pink) …

Amish Apple Dumplings :


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 267 grams
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 2/3 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup milk

For the apples:

  • 6 apples peeled and cored ( see above for best apples)

For the sauce:

  • 2 cups brown sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon


Make the dough:

  • In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
  • Mix in the butter, then add in the milk and mix just until a soft dough forms.
  • Divide the dough into 6 balls.

Assemble the dumplings:

  • Roll out each ball of dough on a floured surface.
  • Place an apple in the center of each piece of dough.
  • Fold the dough around the apple and press it together to form a ball.
  • Spray a 9×13 pan with cooking spray.
  • Place the dumplings in the prepared pan

Make the sauce:

  • In a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the brown sugar, water, butter and cinnamon. Heat it just until it barely starts boiling, stirring often.
  • Pour this mixture over the dumplings.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes, or until the apples are soft and the dough is golden brown. You can baste the dumplings with the syrup several times during baking if you’d like.
  • Serve warm with ice cream

Thanks for Baking with me today …. Lisa
