Gram's Rolled Apple Dumplings

Your mouth is going to water just reading this recipe!

4 medium apples, chopped

1 tsp. cinnamon or more to taste

½ C. sugar



2 C. flour

½ tsp. salt

11/2 T. butter, softened

3 tsp. baking powder

Ύ C. milk



1 C. brown sugar

1 T. flour

1 C. water

1 T. light corn syrup

1 T. butter


Combine apples, cinnamon and sugar. Set aside. Prepare sauce by combining brown sugar, flour, water, butter and corn syrup. Boil. Remove from heat. Prepare dough by combining flour, salt, baking powder, butter and milk. Roll dough into a ½ inch thickness. Cover with apple mixture. Roll jelly roll-like and cut into 1 inch slices. Place in baking pan with sides touching. Pour sauce over top and bake at 425 for 30 – 35 minutes. Serve warm. Yum.

Option: substitute a thawed loaf of frozen bread dough for the dough.


Crock Pot Applesauce

Peel, core and slice approximately 12# (1 peck) of apples — sweet or tart depending on your taste; I like to use Golden Delicious.


Place in Crock-pot on LOW overnight. (You don’t need to add anything – no water or sugar or spice – unless you want to.) In the morning, smash the apples with a potato masher for chunky apple sauce, or whip them with a mixer for smooth apple sauce. Serve warm for breakfast or whenever.

1/3 c. flour

1/3 c. sugar

1 t. cinnamon

1/4 c. softened butter

Blend all dry ingredients, then add softened butter.

Spread topping over baked apple pie (and bake an additional 20 minutes at 350 degrees).
