I had a couple of apples that were sitting all alone in the cold garage. Their buddies had all gone on to better things: pies, cakes, even muffins, but these little guys had no foreseeable happy future until I thought of dumplings. I saved up Disney reward points until we were able to get both of the Apple Dumplin’ Gang movies for free. I had never made apple dumplings before, so I did a little research. The old fashioned way was to make a dough and wrap it around a whole cored apple. I realized that I didn’t want to go to all of that trouble. I had a couple of tubes of refrigerated biscuits in the fridge, so why not try using them? I didn’t want these to be dry biscuits around an apple, so I made up a butter sauce with the leftover brown sugar/cinnamon mixture I had used to sweeten the inside of the dumplings. The result was a soft, delicious apple dessert. And they were SO easy!!
