Caramel Apple Dumplings

Can it get any better for Fall? Nope.

When I was little my Dad would make the most delicious caramel dumplings. We requested them all the time. They were so good because they melt in your mouth and make you feel warm inside. This is his actual recipe that we have passed on to our kids. They love it just as much as we did then.

I added the apples for a pleasant change. They were picked fresh from my apple tree and I needed to use them. Such a perfect flavor combo. This must be served over vanilla ice cream for the full effect. Enjoy!

Caramel Apple Dumplings
  • 1 quart of water (32 oz)
  • Bisquick dry mix
  • 3-4 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 green or yellow apples sliced
  • vanilla ice cream
In a deep skillet bring water, sugar, salt and butter to a boil. In the meantime mix up a batch of dumplings from the Bisquick mix (using recipe on box). Add vanilla and stir. Drop spoonfuls of batter (spaced 2 inches apart) into boiling sugar water. Add apple slices. Simmer for 10 minutes. Cover with lid and simmer for another 10 minutes. Serve right away, hot, over vanilla ice cream.
