Cooking Thursday - Apple Dumplings6:42 AM
Good morning ladies :)
Can you believe it's already Thursday again? Not that I'm going to complain too much because I do love my weekends, but goodness, we're one day away from March.
Anyway, here is today's recipe, one of my children's favorites and I had a craving for it yesterday, so quickly made it. Enjoy :)
2 Granny Smith apples
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
8 canned buttermilk biscuits
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
Peel, core and slice the apples vertically into 8 slices each. Squeeze the lemon into a bowl of water and add the apple slices to keep from turning brown.
In a medium saucepan, mix 1 cup water, 3/4 cup of the sugar, the butter and vanilla. Bring the sugar mixture to a boil over medium heat.
Separate each biscuit into 2 layers. Wrap a biscuit layer around a slice of apple, stretching the biscuit slightly to overlap, and seal on the bottom. Place the wrapped slices, sealed-side down, in a 9- by 12- by 2-inch casserole dish.
Pour the hot sugar mixture over the apple slices. 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.
