Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings THM-XO

Old Fashioned Apple Dumplings have been a family favorite for years. These are seasonal item you will find in many Amish/Mennonite bakeries and roadside stands in the fall.  They can be eaten warm with a bit of cream which is my favorite or with ice cream like some of my family prefer.  This recipe is a healthier version of an old traditional comfort food made by our grandmothers.
