Apple Dumplings

This is an easy but super delicious way to make an apple dumpling. I wish I had some vanilla ice cream to go along with these. I was glad to find the reddi whip in the fridge though. 

I used my new Kitchen IQ spice grinder to grate some fresh cinnamon! This  thing works awesome.  There is a non-slip finger area for stability when grating.  There is a little cup underneath to catch all the gratings. I also used this to grate lemon zest to make lemon bars and I'm sure I'll using it for grating nutmeg and ginger as well. 

Apple Dumpling Recipe

2 apples, I used Granny Smith
Lemon juice
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter (1 stick)
1/4 tsp. vanilla 
8 canned buttermilk biscuits
4 tsp. ground cinnamon

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. 

Slice the apple into 8 slices. You can peel the apple if you want but I left the peel on. Squeeze some lemon juice on the apple to keep it from turning brown. 

In a medium pan, mix 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of the sugar and the butter. Bring mixture to boil. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla. 

Separate each biscuit into two layers.  Stuff a slice of apple inside the biscuit and stretch the biscuit around and seal the edges.  Place the biscuits in a 9 x 13 in. pan.  Pour the hot sugar mixture over the biscuits. 

Mix the remaining 1/4 cup sugar with the cinnamon and sprinkle the mixture over the tops of the wrapped apples.  Bake until golden brown, 35 minutes.
